In August of 2007, brothers Andrew and Dan Callaway found themselves living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the entire family together for the first time since their childhood spent in the English countryside. Along with their father, Liam Callaway, the trio of musicians began writing songs reflective of their Athens, Georgia roots and their fortuitous return to the South.
The result is an unusual combination of Southern edge and English introspection, with haunting lyrics and massive chamber rock unfurling in a sweeping, evocative surge of sound.
The most recent addition is Sean Barna on drums, bringing a new intensity to the music.
Influenced by Sigur Ros, Radiohead, and the post-rock movement, England in 1819 is armed with their first professionally recorded album, �Alma,� and poised to conquer with their impressive blend of ethereal atmosphere, captivating melodies and Brobdingnagian ending anthems.
