Work in Progress EP 2007


Feeling a bit camera shy


Although she grew up in a family of musicians and artists, Christal never anticipated a career as a musician herself. All that changed one day while rummaging through an old storage shed. She unearthed a dusty stack of record albums and a record player and began to see music in a whole new light. Bob Dylan's Blood on the Tracks, Joni Mitchell's Court and Spark, Jesse Colin Young's Song for Juli, Cat Steven's Tea for the Tillerman and the Beatles' White Album were a revelation.

She began teaching herself to play guitar, launching what is now a body of work that includes over 60 original songs. From the bluesy, libido driven "Beggin' for More" to the heart rending cry for "Revolution" to the whimsical "Kiss Me" it's hard to deny the diversity and strength of her repertoire. Her memorable, heartfelt melodies and deeply personal lyrics beg the listener to sing along. Christal Campbell is a songwriter, singer and guitarist devoted to her craft. The result is an intoxicating cocktail of folk, rock and blues with a twist of jazz and country which draws on influences as diverse as The White Stripes, Carole King, Van Morrison and Johnny Cash.

Christal grew up in the small coastal town of Ocean Park, Washington which has actually been penned "the end of the world" and was home-schooled until Jr. High. After her brief stint at public school she returned home to complete high school in one year, graduating at the age of 15 and leaving home to live on her own. She took odd jobs and played music to make ends meet. At 18 she headed south to Los Angeles with a few bucks in her pocket and her car. This might seem a little crazy to many, but only natural to those who know her well. Playing venues throughout the city and recording in the studio keeps her busy but she still makes time for her first love: writing new music.
