Prior to his recent participation in the 2013 X Factor, Sam worked tirelessly, gigging around the country, often for free to build a fan base. His efforts paid off and he has gained many thousands of loyal supporters which have dubbed themselves 'Callafans' and Sam’s 'Callafan Army' have had several mentions in national press and news media!
