Calum Rees

Pastor & Musician, Epic Vineyard Community

Calum was born in Church Village (Wales, UK) and has been training to become a Canadian for the past 11 years.  On meeting Calum you quickly realize two things; that he has a tremendous sense of fun and that he is a Welshman! Calum plays drums and percussion, releasing his rhythms wherever he finds himself to be.  His first professional gig, where he was paid in actual cash, was back in 1984 whilst still a schoolboy, and he has built a wealth of experience over the years from which to draw. You’ll find his playing featured on many acclaimed musical projects, including from the last century, Come Now Is The Time To Worship and Hungry with Brian Doerksen and Vineyard UK, through to the more recent Songs for the Journey series with The Shiyr Poets (GMA Inspirational Album of the Year 2015 & 2017). Calum is a local church pastor here in Calgary with the Epic Vineyard community.  He is married to Joyce and together they run around trying to keep up with their two very energetic and accident causing boys.
