There is no sweeter harmony than that between and father and son. Both accomplished musicians, Ken and Kyle Campbell bring together their talents to create an infectious noise that can only be accomplished through the unspoken bonds of family.
Achieving success in their first three years, including performances at the Cherry Blossom Festival, Kutztown Folk Festival and Musikfest in Bethlehem PA, Campbell and Son released their new EP, Country Blood, on October 10th, 2022. Their song America (You’re Breaking My Heart), won the weekly at-home prize as part of the John Lennon Songwriting Competition.
Although Campbell and Son formerly came together as a band in 2018, Ken and Kyle have been making music together for over 40 years. Whether it was Ken teaching Kyle to play guitar, or sitting around a campfire with their family and singing songs, music has been the cornerstone of their relationship.
On their latest EP, Country Blood, the band expands their sound to include full instrumentation. It's an eclectic mix from the soulful sounds of "I Wanna Be Your Baby," to the stadium rock anthem, "Get To You On Christmas," to the personal ballad, "OC Vs. Kryptonite," to the touching cover of The Beatles, "Two of Us." Country Blood is an easy listen that will have audiences hitting replay on their favorites.
When not working as Campbell and Son, Ken and Kyle stay busy performing around their home towns. Ken, of Dresden, NY, is a full-time musician and musical fixture of the Fingers Lakes wine region. Ken toured the US nationally as a solo act in the 1980’s and 90’s before settling in the upstate NY region. An avid songwriter, Ken counts several honorable mentions in national songwriting competitions as part of his resume. www.kennyacoustic.net
