Lomond Campbell announces details of the release of his debut album, ‘Black River Promise’ with featured track ‘The Lengths’.
We are proud to announce the release of Lomond Campbell’s achingly beautiful debut album,’Black River Promise’ on Friday November 3rd 2017. Lomond is a brand new addition to the Heavenly Recordings roster.
Originally hailing from the Scottish borders and a former long-time resident of Edinburgh, Campbell, eager to flee the clamour and turbulence of the city, upped sticks a couple of years ago, setting up home and studio in a leaking, decrepit, asbestos-ridden school house in the shadow of Ben Nevis.
Released on Campbell’s own acclaimed Triassic Tusk label at the end of 2016, the album was discovered by Jeff Barrett of Heavenly Recordings, who subsequently re-mastered the record, and are releasing it on vinyl for the first time.
Black River Promise is very much a chronicle of this transition from the white noise of the city to the near-silence Campbell’s new highland home. Deep, rich, astonishing and lyrically engaging, the album effortlessly skips between melancholic introspection and joyful euphoria and includes a 10-piece string ensemble assembled by cellist / arranger Pete Harvey (King Creosote, Modern Studies).
Amongst other things, Lomond Campbell is a regular musical sparring partner and comrade of King Creosote, BAFTA winning songwriter, Scottish Album Of The Year shortlister and FOUND collective member.
