Beyond Below

by Grant Campbell

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Scottish singer-songwriter releases his critically acclaimed second album 'Beyond Below' on Crooked Mouth Records (CMR001CD).

The Sunday Times ****
The List ****
The Skinny ****
Room Thirteen ****
The Scotsman ***

The 14 track CD album comes with a 16 page-booklet featuring lyrics & notes in a clear jewel case with O-card slip sleeve.

Press:

His voice remains as distinctive and evocative as ever, notably on the unusually upbeat Red River, the unexpectedly pretty Careless Words (which recalls the gentle country-rock of Mike Nesmith’s First National Band) and the title track, with its Dylanishly simple harmonica solo’
- The Sunday Times ****

‘On his second release, Campbell has hit something of a modern benchmark that many singer-songwriters can only aspire to’ - The Skinny ****

‘14 songs each possessing the power to halt any listener unwittingly in their tracks and leave them staring pensively into the middle distance’
- The List ****

‘Both understated and atmospheric, Beyond Below gives a respectful nod to Bruce Springsteen at his most vulnerable’ - The Scotsman ***

‘Campbell’s music displays the richness of theme and conviction of early Springsteen met with the lilting laid-back manner of later Bob Dylan, it’s a glorious concoction of truthful soulful melancholy that’s as uplifting and relaxing as Drake, Cohen and Jeff Buckley’
- Room Thirteen 11/13

Rare Beauty
Grant Campbell is een songwriter met de zeldzame klasse zoals ze eens in de zoveel jaren voorbij komen. Qua vergelijkingsmateriaal gingen mijn eerste gedachten uit naar de in 1995 overleden songschrijver Bob Carpenter, van wie het ijzersterke album Silent Passage eind 2007 opnieuw is uitgebracht. (m.m.v. o.a. Russ kunkel, Bill Payne, Lowell George, Ben Keith & Emmylou Harris) Evenals Carpenter bedient Campbell zich van de basics qua songschrijven en instrumentatie. Beiden zijn daarnaast voorzien van een buitengewoon meesterlijk ruw stemgeluid. En daar houdt wat mij betreft de vergelijking op. Carpenter was Canadees, en Campbell komt van Schotland. Campbell is een man van weinigl woorden, heeft jarenlang gefungeerd als muzikant in de gelederen van artiesten als Alison Moorer, Johnny Dowd, Mary Gauthier, the Handsome Family & Howe Gelb. Met Beyond Below, zijn 2de album, legt deze man van Glasgow de lat duizelingwekkend hoog. Aan dit desolate niveau kunnen slechts weinig tippen. Een eerste klas aanrader die het ontdekken meer dan waard is.
