Jack Campbell is a Minnesotan pop songwriter currently residing in Chicago, IL. After a deft placement of his first single, “Absentee”, on the popular internet radio drama Welcome to Night Vale, Campbell has garnered a solid fan base all around the globe. Campbell called upon these forces this past summer in the form of a crowdfunding campaign and single release and was met with an overwhelming response. Way over-reaching his fundraising goal and filling in the financial gaps with a full time summer job at a Duluth, MN convenience store, Campbell returned to the studio with "Absentee" producer Brett Bullion to make a full length record.
Campbell’s college education in jazz and obsession with pop music combined with Bullion’s keen arranging skills and ear for quality tone as an electronic/ambient musician lead to pristine sounding recordings that are both perfectly groovy and lyrically sound. These recordings are a step away from Campbell’s roots, growing up as a garage rock frontman throughout high school, but his stage presence still shines through with his current live incarnation, Jack Campbell & the Skeleton Keys.
Jack Campbell’s new self-titled record will drop on November 11th followed by alternating US tours and a continued college education.
