Songwriter. Singer. Banjo Player. Ashley Campbell juggles all three roles, armed with the ability not only to dream up a modern country song, but to deliver it too.
Already known for her work alongside her father, country legend Glen Campbell – who, during his final years as a touring musician, leaned heavily on his youngest daughter as a banjo player, keyboardist and harmony vocalist – Ashley is now stepping out on her own. Her music is a mix of her wide-ranging influences, combining the old-school country sound popularised by her father during the 60’s and 70’s with contemporary Americana, roots folk and country-pop.
Glen Campbell’s longtime fans may hear something familiar in Ashley’s melodies as she embraces these similarities while distinguishing herself as a talented front woman.
Ashley will be performing at the Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival in March, as well as Country2Country Festival at the O2, London (Saturday 10th March only).
