The incredible Mark Campbelland the Ravens featuring the gorgeous Melissa Campbell and my stunningly talented husband Luke Blakemore. Wow guys what a song!!!Posted by Bev Blakemore on Sunday, September 20, 2015
Mark Campbell crafts songs of heart-rending truth and beauty, with lyrics that had Oscar-winner Glen Hansard reaching for a pen to write them on his arm.
Mark is currently in the studio recording on their debut album with Jimi Maroudas (Tim Rogers, Kimbra, etc) to be released later this year. As well as the usual band, this recording features Guest Ravens Dave Williams (Augie March) on drums, Davey Lane (You Am I) on guitar, and Kat Mear (Cash Savage) on violin.
Previously a key member of JJJ-darlings ‘Folding For Air’, and ‘Souls on Board,’ he has built a live “wall of sound” behind songs that “ooze honesty.” (Beat Mag) Accompanied by a horn and string section, the live band weave a rootsy blend of alt. country, rock, and folk that has seen them already support many great icons of indie music in Australia, including Ross McLennan (Snout), The Gin Club and Sarah McLeod.
