Jeff Campbell is a natural, and any lover of music can see that when performing, he is doing what he was born to do.
This young singer-songwriter was brought up in a musical family with constant exposure to artists and performers from the last six decades. These artists have influenced a songwriting style, a mix of raw rock and winding lyrical melodies, which continues to evolve within him through the years.
Touring and performing through countless venues on the East Coast, Campbell put his nose to the grindstone and built a fast and steady reputation and faithful following, selling out venues in New York and Pennsylvania on a regular basis.
A Philadelphia native, Campbell moved to San Francisco in 2004 specifically for the Rock scene he had heard was developing.
It was here that, in addition to his solo efforts, Campbell started writing, recording and performing as front man for the San Francisco-based rock band Pine and Battery (www.reverbnation.com/pineandbattery), which garners the newest editions to his catalogue of original rock music. Pine and Battery’s 2006 self-titled release, and single ''Southern", can be heard in regular rotation on both AAA’s KFOG and KQED radio in the San Francisco Bay Area. Pine and Battery is currently a featured local artist on KFOG and has been for over 3 years. P&B’s second release and the tour to support it came in 2009 and early 2010 to rave reviews in the Bay Area and up and down the West Coast.
Early 2012 will see the release of Campbell’s first-ever acoustic album, Stop and Go. With this album, Jeff promises to stay true to the songwriting style that P&B fans have come to know but also to test some boundaries in terms of production, approach and style. Stop and Go also boasts guest performances from several of the Bay area's finest musicians, including but not limited to: Megan Slankard, Brad Brooks, Austin Wilacy and James Deprato, who not only offered their performance talents, but also lent their hands with songwriting, arrangements and production.
Jeff will be touring the US in the fall of 2011 and Spring of 2012 to support this new release.
