Cullah (Born April 27, 1991 in Milwaukee, WI) is a multi-disciplinary musician and engineer who writes, records, and releases an album every year on April 27th (his birthday) since 2006. Each album reflects the eclectic musical styles that Cullah draws from — an autobiographical journey of musical expression. With each revolution around the sun, Cullah explors and documents the human condition through song. Releasing all his music free and under an open license, there is a greater focus to the purpose of his music.
Cullah was born to the daughter of an Austrian gypsy-poet and the son of an Irish codebreaker. His mother was one of seventeen children in the Wolff Family Band and was classically trained in jazz music. His father is a mathematician and computer scientist raised on a Missouri farm, entranced with the Earth and the limits of the cosmos.
