Cullah (Born Ian McCullough on April 27, 1991 in Milwaukee, WI) is a multi-disciplinary musician and engineer who releases an album every year on April 27th since 2006. In 2021, Cullah reached his milestone album ½, where he celebrated half of his life releasing music. With each revolution around the sun, Cullah explores and documents his human condition through various stories and song. Cullah finds his inspiration from in many places – you may find yourself moving from Appalachian Folk to French House seamlessly in a musical collage.

Cullah describes his pull towards music as “not a choice” and as a magnetic and constant presence in his life. Cullah describes his draw towards music as inherent to his being, perhaps even in his DNA. His grandfather, orphaned at a young age, would perform the fiddle in bars to make just enough money to eat that day. His mother, Mary, was one of seventeen children and she was one of eleven daughters – all named Mary (from Cullah’s grandfather’s devotion to Mother Mary). His grandfather told endless stories of divine visions and visitations from angels, many delivering music. Cullah’s two grandparents and seventeen aunts and uncles would participate in the largest family band in American history called “The Wolff Family Band”. In his mother’s womb, he toured the Midwest as she played her clarinet and tenor saxophone.




“You will be hard pressed to find any act, local or otherwise, that sounds like Milwaukee’s Cullah.”
Breaking and Entering

“I’m not sure there is a better pure vocalist in Milwaukee (or possibly even in the 500 mile radius). “

“With a unique voice, eclectic palate and magnetic presence, Cullah is a standout and his progression as an artist has been manifold — in the studio and out.”
Radio Milwaukee

“There’s something very special about Cullah that draws people to his music and makes his supporters stick around for the long haul.”
Michele Rosado — Smoky Water Studio

“Cullah’s voice takes a turn into one of the most amazing things I have ever heard. I honestly don’t even know how to describe it.
