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.

Black River Promise is very much a chronicle of this transition from the white noise of the city to the near-silence of his 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, The Leg). reissue of the 2016 album originally on Triassic Tusk.
