Brian Campeau Announces East Coast ‘Mostly Winter Sometimes Spring’ Tour

Written by Toby Smith on September 2, 2009

As we move from Winter through to Spring so are the days of Brian Campeau’s life. The Sydney, by way of Canada, singer-songwriter will be launching his critically acclaimed sophomore album Mostly Winter Sometimes Spring at east coast venues throughout September and October.

The tour will feature Brian on guitar and lead vocals with an all-girl all-star backing ensemble including Elana Stone (accordion & vocals), Lauren Yates (cello & vocals) and Nicola Ossher (percussion & vocals).

Celebrated for his powerful tenor voice, unique instrumentation, unusual arrangements and organic, left field production, Brian Campeau is no regular singer-songwriter. He’s trying something a little different, and succeeding!

Released on August 1 to rave review Brian’s new album, Mostly Winter Sometimes Spring, sees him take a very different approach to song writing, while continuing to make the most of his gift for melody and mood.

One instrument was chosen for each song on the album, and played in whichever way worked best for each particular track. Imagine melodicas, cellos, harmoniums and glockenspiels caressed, thrown, strummed, and deliberately misused in a bid to express Campeau’s experiences over the last two years.

A genuine talent of mood and music this Sydney troubadour deserves your immediate attention.
