Matt Campbell is a songwriter steeped in the tradition of the American Troubadour. Originally from Colorado, Campbell’s restless spirit has led him from the concrete canyons of New York City to the seaside cliffs of California, with a few stops in between. Now in Chicago, he continues to write and record original music.
Matt Campbell’s newest album release was mixed and recorded in two sessions at Strobe Recording in Chicago; Miles Apart is a five song suite about the challenge of new beginnings and the faith to forge ahead. Matt Campbell’s affinity for rich imagery and melody are on full display, as the stripped down sound highlights his distinct voice and lyrics. Miles Apart represents Campbell’s first effort solely produced in Chicago, and the second release from The Chicago Talking Machine Co. label.
Matt Campbell has opened for Del McCoury, The Subdudes, Martin Sexton, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jason Boland, Corb Lund, Split Lip Rayfield and many more…
