Bio

Celebrated for his powerful voice, unique instrumentation, unusual arrangements and organic, left field production, Brian Campeau is no regular singer songwriter. In 2009 he released his album “Mostly Winter Sometimes Spring” to rave reviews (“Genuine Genius” – The Drum Media), and toured it extensively throughout Australia. Brian has worked on many platforms having also had a major part in the music of the Underbelly season, Razor (Nine). He’s worked as a composer on television commercials, independent films, and radio broadcasts, as well as having worked closely with the likes of Angus and Julia Stone, Bluejuice, and Tommy Trash. His most current work includes the initial Australian release of Beck’s new album Song Reader, for which Brian has arranged most of the music, working with guests such as Thomas Rawle (Papa vs. Pretty), Josh Pyke, and Elana Stone. He is also currently working on his follow up solo album, slowly sifting through hundreds of demos, as well as recording a full length album with his garage-grass outfit the Green Mohair Suits, due to be released later this year.

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.
