Ruu Campbell is a man who has travelled the world, collaborated with electric collective the Cinematic Orchestra and worked as vocalist for Leftfield for two years and now he is on the cusp of releasing debut album Heartsong, recorded in a home studio at his cottage. Coming direct from what will become a treasured collection of songs is debut single Crossroads, released on August 18th.
Carried along on a finger picked guitar, Crossroads builds through rich textures of Campbell’s encapsulating voice that takes you on a journey of reflection that wouldn’t be out of place in an indie road trip movie. The song has the quality to draw you into Campbell’s world with the greatest of ease and the sudden transportation to a more tranquil place reveals plenty about the song writer’s background as a genre-jumping musician.
It’s a heartfelt and pure two and a half minutes that reveal just a piece of this talented singers’ warmth and pedigree.
You can stream Crossroads now on Soundcloud.
