Released April 1, 2022
Dig the Motion is Campbell Harrison’s fourth studio album, but the first one that’s almost exclusively acoustic. Recorded at Welcome to 1979 in Nashville, it’s a hybrid record with four studio cuts capped off with three live, singer-songwriter performances at the end. The mix works well with shared lyrical and melodic threads. The first single "Sleeping In Kathmandu" is a good representation of the stripped-down, folkgrass sound.
The recurring theme throughout can be distilled as “just keep going” even though things are tough and seem uncertain. Harrison’s songs often address the human condition and what it means to struggle with uncertainty and the burdens of growing up in the modern age. While this collection of tunes acknowledges the pressures of being young in an increasingly polarized world, they are also bound by a silver thread of optimism that is a signature of Harrison’s art.
Accessible, with a comfortable rootsy vibe, Dig The Motion will have you dancing and singing one minute and wiping away a tear the next. It’s modern-folk flavor features the mandolin and upright bass to compliment Harrison’s unique rhythm/lead guitar style.
“Lyin Cheatin Getting By '' was born from the ashes of 2020 and its relentless negativity. It’s a collection of songs that poke fun at pretenders and hypocrites, while simultaneously shining a light on the small things that enrich our lives. “I tried to make these songs lighthearted and fun, while still being rewarding for those who really dig into the lyrics,” says Harrison.
Campbell recorded with a team of all-star team talent, including Ted Pecchio (Doyle Bramhall II, Susan Tedeschi, The Codetalkers) on bass, Benjo Markus (Dee White) on electric guitars, Hayes Smith Jr. on drums, and Aubree Riley on background vocals.
The signature ballad on "Dig The Motion." It’s a heartbreaking melody, and reflective lyrics capture the polar states of frustration and gratefulness that have entangled so many during the "COVID" years. This lyrically-driven gem, with its lilting waltz and nuanced vocals, is one that’s easy to put on repeat. This one in particular gives me Childers vibes, primarily during the impactful and heartfelt chorus.
