Kate Campbell is one of our finest contemporary songwriters. Her songs tell stories intricately entwined with contemporary history. Born in Mississippi, she has called Nashville home for many years. With 13 albums to her credit, she is a prolific writer and engaging performer. Her endearing, clear-water vocal delivery, eloquent gift for storytelling (which has drawn repeated comparisons to such bastions of the Southern writing tradition as Flannery O’Connor, Eudora Welty and William Faulkner) and easy command of a full range of American music styles, have combined to earn Campbell recognition as a formidable talent by critics, musicians and a discerning public. She has collaborated with greats such as Emmylou Harris, Nanci Griffith, Mary Chapin Carpenter, John Prine and Spooner Oldham.
“Her literate songs artfully skirt the border between country and rock with a few blues twists…a major talent…simplicity, sincerity, and sophistication run rampant here.”
“Kate Campbell belongs in the company of literati like Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, and Lucinda Williams.”
