Award Winning/Multi-Nominated, Country Blues Singer/Songwriter, J.C. Campbell's latest project is near completion. The new release is produced by Murray Pulver of Doc Walker. The self titled album still has bluesy elements but leans more toward the new country radio friendly sound that Doc Walker is known for.
JC's debut CD "Life Up Til Now" was embraced by the Canadian Aboriginal Music Award Committee and garnered a double nomination for the acoustic album in the "Best Folk and Best Country Album" catagories.
His sophmore album "Lazy James" was chosen as Best Blues CD at the 2008 Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards. Lazy James spins ten original tracks. The Country Blues Recording Artist charted in at 1 on CFBX 92.5 FM in Kamloops B.C. for 4 weeks in the specialty charts under Blues and reached the second spot on the top 30 charts.A number 1 spot was also achieved at NCI-FM radio in Winnipeg M.B. with his southern rock flavoured track "Keep on Tryin".
In addition to charting on college campus radio, he was given the thumbs up from Country Recording Artist/Actor, Mark Collie after he performed it at a rehearsal for a shared gig. Mark told him "I don't hear too well, but I know I hit when I hear one and that's a hit!" In 2007, a trip to Nashville, TN. and good "Fortune" led him to co-write with Nashville Hit Songwriter and Chief Creative Officer of Ole' Music Publishing Gilles Godard, who has written hits for Terri Clark, Patty Loveless and Tracy Byrd to name a few.
2008 Songwriting Workshop led by the incomparable Buffy St.Marie was organized by the Aboriginal Music Program. J.C. was one of five Songwriters to be invited to share their original material. With recognizable vocals, every J.C. Campbell song stirs up undeniable emotion.
