Discovery: Campbell & Son

America (You’re Breaking My Heart) is the latest release from Campbell & Son, a folk duo from the USA.

By Jane Howkins

Campbell & Son are a father and son duo who perform beautiful folk ballads on their acoustic guitars, with America (You’re Breaking My Heart) being no different. The track takes a lot from traditional folk music, and whilst the instrumentation is quite simple, this simplicity only serves to make the track sound even more beautiful. Lyrically, the song is about the awful things that have happened within the USA this year, and it emphasises the importance of coming together through tough times – a message that most of us can find comfort in.
