Feel-good hits of the summer often feel forced or fluffy, or both. In the case of Cally Rhode’s new single ‘Summer of My Life’, that is not the case. The song feels like a pseudo-Carribean anthem with a steady beat and lush, beautiful vocal harmonies that have that natural and ‘not processed’ feeling that really show’s Cally’s talent as a vocalist. However, the song also showcases her talent as a songwriter. Written by Rhodes and Si Hulbert, ‘Summer of My Life’ has that sweet combination of original tightness and creative focus that only musical professionals having a good time at their craft can convey within the notes.

‘Summer of My Life’ is out now via iTunes and Spotify.

About Cally Rhodes & ‘Summer of My Life’
To mark the start of summer, rising pop sensation Cally Rhodes has released a scorching new single titled ‘Summer of My Life’.

By reflecting on cherished memories from a past romance, Cally has crafted a huge summer anthem. The vivacious singer’s latest song combines glistening vocals and retrospective lyrics with a tropical-tinged beat.

‘Summer of My Life’ was co-written by Cally Rhodes and Si Hulbert. Si (who is known for his acclaimed work with Dido, Ed Sheeran, Jess Glynne, and One Direction) also produced the track.

Speaking about her new single, Cally said:

“‘Summer of My Life’ is playful and melodic. I wrote the song based on my summer memories so I wanted to capture that fun nostalgia through the music and lyrics. Summer has always been when I feel most at ease and ready for new adventures. I love hot weather; especially as I grew up by a beach. My favorite experiences have always been in the sun.”

Irrespective of the weather, ‘Summer of My Life’ is sure to bring sunshine to its listeners. The remarkably catchy single follows Cally’s 2018 summer smash ‘System’ which has accumulated over 3.5 million streams on Spotify.



Cally’s indisputable talent certainly isn’t going unnoticed. The Welsh songstress was labeled as ‘Best Artist of the Year 2018’ by BBC Introducing in Shropshire and she was previously named ‘BBC Introducing Artist of the Week’ nationally.

As well as writing and recording original material, Cally uploads unique covers of her favorite songs on YouTube. Her acoustic rendition of ‘Touch’ by Little Mix was praised by the girl band themselves and tweeted to their millions of followers.

With another pop gem to her name and more new music on the way, this year is set to be another great one for Cally. Like the summer sun, her future looks incredibly bright.
