“They don’t try to sound like kids in their music though; no hip-hop or electro beats, instead they do what they love, which is a warm folk and pop sound, heavy on the melodies, harmonies and easy-on-the-ear playing.” – Bob Merserau, CBC ‘East Coast Music’
Jumping into 2017 with a running start as they plan their 2 of Hearts Tour through Canada and Europe, Campbell + Green is a duo of talented musicians whose vocal harmonies and honesty captivate audiences with their warm and relaxed on-stage presence. Their thoughtful songwriting of a contemporary folk/pop style with a touch of traditional blues, country and light rock, range from happy to powerful to poignant.
To support their tour, they have a brand new EP entitled 2 of Hearts, once again produced by the incomparable Jamie Robinson, and thanks to a grant from FACTOR. The songs are upbeat, toe-tapping and once again spanning the range from folk pop to country. The new tunes are available on iTunes, CD Baby, and direct from Campbell + Green.
Their previous albums, “When One Door Closes” and “East”, span the deep roots of life experience these two share, with moments that most of us can relate to in our own busy lives.
Campbell + Green call Nova Scotia home and live in the Halifax area. Both write and co-write music and lyrics solo, together and with other writers. Cailin is also an artist and Robert offers his considerable keyboard talent to various artists in Atlantic Canada.
