Jon Campbell is an american singer-songwriter and visual artist based in Berlin. His music brings together threads of indie-folk, singer-songerwriter and alt-country with a powerfully honest expression of his homosexuality. Jon Campbell’s baritone voice immediately draws comparisons to Stephin Merrit and Leonard Cohen - artists who've greatly inspired his work.
Jon’s debut EP 'About A Boy' was released through Of Naked Design Records on February 29th, 2016. Combining songs from his youth and the present with production and string, brass and piano arrangements by Jamie Irrepressible, of UK band 'The Irrepressibles'.
"Jon Campbell’s paintings have an innocent, child-like sensibility… Campbell crafts songs that remind me of Jonathan Richman and the The Modern Lovers. His music as well as his paintings have a charming, slackerish affect, conveying the dreams and fantasies of a global flâneur."
