It’s unlikely to see Bristol based Lori Campbell play any of her songs exactly the same way twice. Lori is a dynamic and sensitive live performer. She weaves her versatile voice, her stories and her bluesy – folk guitar pickings into what feels like a relaxed conversation with her audience.
In the summer of 2014 Lori released her Debut EP Seeds, a live five track recorded and mixed by Ben Capp at The Island studio in Bristol. Lori played over 30 gigs at UK festivals last summer including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Larmertree, Shambala and Green Man. She also supported Ralph Mctell on the opening night of Sidmouth Folk Festival’s 60th anniversary. Between entertaining crowds Lori also found the time to take a lead role in the critically acclaimed independent feature film Hinterland which also features the track September from her EP.
She captures the attention of the whole room, wistfully cooing into the microphone to the point where people are scared to break the silence – Review of Lori Campbell’s support of Ben Howard at Moles, Bath
Lori Campbell oozes charm, she’s a comedic sweetheart and sings smooth and lilting as all hell. Armed with a pint sized guitar, and supreme mouth trumpet skills, Lori will literally knock your socks off. – Nuala Honan ‘Live in the Lions Den’
