Out now, New England sweethearts The Ballroom Thieves – Calin “Callie” Peters (vocals, cello, bass), Martin Earley (vocals, guitar) – share the track “I’m Around” Featuring guitarist and singer-songwriter Ariel Posen, the track follows “Woman” Feat Lady Lamb,” as well as their pop-up performance at Newport Folk Fest.

About the song, the duo says: “You know that unmistakably warm and fuzzy feeling that wells up when you know you have someone to rely on? We tried to put that feeling in a song. And then our friend Ariel Posen wrapped a blanket of tone around it with his magical guitar arms. This is deeply felt in the lyrics, ‘Now I’m part memory, part distance, And you are here in all the ways I learned to miss you. And I insist you never change for anyone.’”

It’s their unique brand of powerful and harmonious music, while never shying away from topics and ideas they are passionate about, that has charmed fans around the country. Their catalogue has amassed over 90+ million streams, garnered key support from the press (Rolling Stone, NPR Music, The Washington Post, American Songwriter, Consequence Of Sound, Paste) and radio (WBUR, WGBH, WETS, WMOT, Maine Public Radio, WCLX, WCLZ), and gained a loyal live following, with sold-out shows and festival spots at Boston Calling, Newport Folk, and Calgary Folk.
