Bio

Brian Campeau is widely regarded as one of the most confounding and creative artists working in Australia today. In addition to his previous solo albums (which also include 2007’s ‘Two Faces’ and 2009’s ‘Mostly Winter, Sometimes Spring’) he has recorded and toured as one half of folk-pop act The Rescue Ships and as part of Sydney’s bluegrass revivalists The Green Mohair Suits, while also producing records for the likes of Melanie Horsnell in his St Peters studio. Drawing influence from a limitless range of styles, Campeau has described his own music, with characteristic wry clarity, as ‘Bjork meets Nick Drake, or Cass McCombs getting depressed and calling Air for consolation’.

Winding, excitable pop from Brian's mind to your ears.

There's always something to sink your teeth into with a new Brian Campeau tune - no matter what guise it may appear under. This one's a slowly convulsing indie-folk head nodder.

Brian is a genuine unappreciated genius. Kind of don't want him to make it so we can keep seeing him play at pubs around the inner west of Sydney.

Loving this alternate arrangement of Garden Song, one of the highlights of the album.
