Samuel Nwachukwu - who performs under the pseudonym: CalledOut Music, is a symbol of hope and excellence in the 21st century. Embodying years of work and excellence, CalledOut Music is one of the most sought after names with international recognition.

Born April 18, 1995 and raised in Nigeria, he moved to the United Kingdom with his family when he was 12 years old. As a multifaceted artist, Samuel first displayed his God-given talent and passion for music at the tender age of 7 in his home church. After producing original songs for musicals for several years, his music career kicked off in 2016 with his debut single, "Working on me". Since then, CalledOutMusic has become one of the UK's most sought after musicians, after releasing a vast and diverse musical collection and two successful albums, in 2018 and 2020 respectively. 

Through his interaction with his 'family' as he fondly calls his fanbase, CalledOut Music has submerged fans across various geographical, demographic and socio-cultural backgrounds. This is also showcased in the diversity, range and style his music captures. He has worked closely on productions with the likes of "Danny Duncan", thus furthering his career up to his latest single "Other Side". CalledOutMusic has also featured on tracks with several artists - including the 2011 Mobo Award winner Triple O – Good Thing. More intentionally, his music captures the essence of faith and hope, spreading joy and positivity to all who come in contact with him. During the global COVID19 pandemic, 'warm embrace' a song of faith and comfort quickly became an anthem to get through the 'tough times' as his fans mentioned. That is a glimpse of the influence his music has had on the UK and global scene in recent times as his bodies of work, albums and collaborations become highly acclaimed globally. He has also worked on a number of international collaborations like a more recent one with multi-award winner "Dena Mwana" on Close To You.

Following the succession of releasing numerous songs over the past 4 years (Working on Me, You're Mine, I Am Free, My Prayer, Love Around, Warm Embrace, Joy, Otherside), CalledOutMusic has managed to acquire a combined tally of over 13.6Million streams on Spotify, 4.3m streams on iTunes and 15.07Million views on YouTube with his label HFP Music where his single "My Prayer" became his first song to reach a landslide of over 4.9Million views (a feat only held by a few UK Gospel Artists). Not only has he managed to establish himself on the "A Step Forward" Gospel chart as #1 for his hit song "I Am Free", but CalledOutMusic has since been on a trail of triumph including being the "Breakthrough Artist of excellence" at the African Gospel Music and Media Awards 2018; "Best Song" (You're Mine) at Premier Gospel Awards 2018 where he performed My Prayer along with nominations for "Best Male" and "Best Song" at Tru Life Gospel Awards; and "UK Artist of the Year" at Gospel Touch Music Awards 2018. In 2019, he was awarded Best Solo Male Video 2019 – Jumpawards, Best Male 2019 - Premier Gospel, Best Video 2019 - Premier Gospel and only recently was he crowned the Best Gospel Act at UEA Awards 2020 (UK Entertainment Awards) and Best Gospel Act at the 2020 MOBO Awards.

In the space of 4 years, CalledOutMusic has also managed to venture out to Europe, Africa and Canada and Amsterdam which included his first headline show at the 'Theatre Paris Story' in France. Continuing with the success of this, the "Love Around Challenge'' had his supporters singing the song worldwide in their native language, with tributes in Lingala (Congo), Spanish, French, Dutch, Twi (Ghana), Yoruba (Nigeria), German, Italian, Korean and a special sign language version. Moreso, only recently did we see the emergence of the "I Am Free Challenge" with viral videos all across social media platforms such as Instagram and Tiktok.

Samuel 'CalledOut Music' Nwachukwu is a music producer, singer/songwriter & multi-instrumentalist from Hampshire England. Growing up in Nigeria, he and his family moved to the Uk when he was 12 years old. He began playing the piano at church aged 7, after his father bought him a keyboard and he's sparkled with creativity ever since, working as music director in various churches in the Uk.

CalledOut Music divided his time between writing hundreds of songs in his bedroom and his education & after many years of producing original songs for musicals and featuring on other artists songs, he decided to embark on a solo music career, releasing his first single 'Working On Me' on his 21st birthday, signalling the beginning of CalledOut Music.

A devout Christian, Samuel's diverse music strongly reflects his belief in Jesus, addressing issues people face whilst sharing the good news of the Gospel. Although, he shares an admiration for many Gospel greats such as Fred Hammond & Richard Smallwood but CalledOut Music's greatest musical influence is Kirk Franklin.

He started the Gospel ministry 'Called Out' with the aim to 'get everyone to have the belief or mindset that they are called out for service to God'.
