Campbell Woods

Campbell Woods pays attention. He’s been doing it for years in the bars of the Ottawa Valley, festivals and halls across Canada.

Along the way, Campbell paid attention to mentors: Brian Kobayakawa, Lynn Miles, Marcus Mosely, Drew Gonsalves. He paid close attention to the legends: Townes Van Zandt, Gram Parsons, John Prine.

Both Campbell’s albums, Oxford Street (2017) and Keeper (2020), testify to a sound that is contemporary while evoking the weathered qualities of his many homes (the Fundy Shore, Lanark County, downtown Halifax, Ottawa, Victoria).

His songs are all about attention paid and stories revealed. They are his stories and his songs, but an evening with Campbell Woods is an invitation to be reminded of your stories, our stories, and how they all echo around the room when truth is told.
