Later he began releasing albums with the label Drag City, to which he remains signed today.Callahan started out as a highly experimental artist, using substandard instruments and recording equipment.From 1993 to 2000, Callahan's recordings grew more and more "professional" sounding, with more instruments, and a higher sound quality.In this period he recorded two albums with the influential producer Jim O'Rourke and Tortoise's John Mc Entire, and collaborated with Neil Hagerty.Thus Will Oldham contributing to a weird comic that recounts the Christian original-sin myth with bonus philosophical twist, just seems like old hat, the form of religo-satire/sincerity crossbreeding he’s been doing since 1993.
In 2010, he released his first live album Rough Travel for a Rare Thing, which was recorded in 2007 at The Toff in Melbourne, Australia.
Themes in Callahan's lyrics include relationships, animals, relocation, nature, and more recently, politics.
On the subject of voice in his albums, Callahan has said, "It’s usually one character per record.
Critics have generally characterized his music as depressing and intensely introverted, with one critic describing it as "a peep-show view into an insular world of alienation." Cat Power (Chan Marshall) recorded Callahan's song "Bathysphere" on her 1996 album What Would the Community Think and also covered another Callahan song, "Red Apples", on her Covers Record, released in 2000.
In 2007, Callahan released Woke on a Whaleheart, his first solo album released under his own name. I bought it for the record, but the book and song go together so beautifully that you cannot separate them.
