A review of Charlotte Campbell | Blur

Written by MartinB

Review

 British country folk at its best. Blur by Charlotte Campbell is reminiscent of a posh Lily Allen with lyrics written from the heart of a singer-songwriter that talks about the impetuousness of young love.

It came as no surprise that after hearing the track and I referred to her website, her biography explains that she attended The Brit School before studying song-writing at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance.

 I love the fact that she has kept her British accent throughout. This and her syncopated phrasing gives her a unique sound and Blur is simply a beautifully written, stripped back song.

 Charlotte is a seasoned street entertainer and pre-Covid she performed under the London Eye on the Southbank. However, restrictions have now changed and on warmer days she can be found busking near Tate Modern Art Gallery across from St Paul’s Cathedral.

 These performances have led to gigs throughout Europe as well as slots at Glastonbury and Cornbury festivals.

 Her fan base on Spotify is growing daily and I suggest that it is only a matter of time before you see Charlotte Campbell on festival posters and venues across the country.

Review If I didn’t know better, I would assume Mitchell Kersley was Nashville born and bred as opposed to coming from “a little village on the south coast of England” according to his biography.  ‘I Only Cry When I’m Drinking’ is steeped in country, with great guitar...

The Shires feat Lauren Alaina | Lightning Strikes

Review From its acapella start, ‘Lightening Strikes’ builds to a catchy rhythm that has more rises and falls than a quickstep. The clever chorus is punctuated with effective tacets, giving it that traditional country sound that will stay with you long after the song...

Sean C Kennedy | Wild Forever

Review   Wild Forever by Scottish born Sean Kennedy is a song that oozes freedom, images of wide open spaces with a worry free existence and it wouldn’t be out of place as the track of choice for a romantic Viennese waltz on Strictly.  Now living permanently in...
