"Jon Campbell depicts full-body figures in crowds or cluster formations where unique personhood gives way to dystopian symbolism. His large acrylic paintings on adjoined sheets of paper have an innocent, child-like sensibility. Campbell, who’s also a musician, crafts songs that remind me of Jonathan Richman and the The Modern Lovers. His music as well as his paintings have a charming, slackerish affect, conveying the dreams and fantasies of a global flâneur."

ABOUT A BOY (2016)

Jon Campbell is an american singer-songwriter and visual artist based in Berlin. His music brings together threads of anti-folk, singer-songerwriter and alt-country 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’s debut EP 'About A Boy' was released through Of Naked Design Records on February 29th, 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'.

“About a Boy is a charming, personal record. Jon mixes the styles of American country and the chilled electro vibes of Berlin’s club scene to create a unique hybrid of music. Spoiler alert... it's really good.”
