Matt Campbell is a songwriter steeped in the tradition of the American Troubadour.  Originally from Colorado, Campbell’s restless spirit has led him from the concrete canyons of New York City to the seaside cliffs of California, with a few stops in between.  Now in Chicago, he continues to write and record original music.  He owns and operates The Chicago Talking Machine Co., a production company working in music, short films and live events.

In Chicago Campbell has been seen at Park West, The Old Town School of Folk Music, Schubas, Uncommon Ground, The Hungry Brain and more.  His travels have found him at NYC’s The Bitter End and The Living Room, LA’s Genghis Cohen, Colorado’s Bluebird Theater, Leon Gallery, Soiled Dove Underground, and more.

Matt Campbell has opened for Del McCoury, The Subdudes, Martin Sexton, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jason Boland, Corb Lund, Split Lip Rayfield and more…

Amid the sea of noise that makes up modern life, one sound can still cut through… Can still give voice to the hopes and aspirations… Can still express the frustrations and disappointments… Can still stir the soul… Shake the steps… Sound the alarm.
