Jon Campbell is an american singer-songwriter and visual artist based in Berlin. His music brings together threads of anti-folk, grunge, americana, Jazz, with a powerfully honest expression of his homosexuality. Jon Campbell’s unique velvet baritone voice immediately draws comparisons to Chet Baker, Stephin Merrit and Leonard Cohen – artists who’ve greatly inspired his work. Jon also plays acoustic guitar, toy piano, trumpet, and speaks fluent German.
Jon’s debut EP is due for release through Of Naked Design Records in January of 2016. Combining songs from his youth and the present with production and string, brass and piano arrangements by Jamie Irrepressible of UK band The Irrepressibles.
