Outgrown These Walls – cover
Caleb and Saleem asked me to shoot the cover to Outgrown These Walls. I’m so excited to have been a part of such a dynamic collaboration. I can’t tell you how much I’ve been enjoying listening to Saleem’s stories coupled with my favorite melody maker. Here’s the cover before the text was added.
In early 2008, I had an outlandish idea: Take two Baltimore musicians who had never heard of each other, pair them up and force them to write four original songs in six weeks.
And the musicians I picked, Caleb Stine and Saleem Heggins, couldn’t have come from more different backgrounds. Caleb was an Americana singer/songwriter; Saleem an MC who liked vintage hip-hop. But the friendship they forged and the songs they wrote in a matter of months are astounding.
The first time Caleb and Saleem performed this music live, audience members teared up. Together they have far exceeded the original challenge and created something truly compelling. – Sam Sessa – The Baltimore Sun, WTMD
