November 

 Hello all!

I apologise for not updating my blog here in a few months! I have been fairly busy with school here in Montreal. But I have also been busy planning my future with my fiancee Stephanie! We got engaged at the end of October and life has been great! So with planning a wedding, school and visiting home, my songwriting has taken a bit of a back seat. I have managed to work on some new ideas a few weeks ago, and I'm quite happy with how they are turning out. All of the techniques and skills I have learned at recording arts school here have given me a whole new perspective on music and its creation. I hope to start applying it soon to my own music and get some of these new songs released to you guys (and girls.)

I also would like to mention that a good friend/fellow musician of mine, Alexy Guerer, will be releasing his new EP titled "Last Man" this Friday, December 2nd! I strongly suggest you check him out! http://www.alexymusic.com

Other than that, I hope all of you had a great November and will have a great December!
Thank you for stopping by and please keep checking back!

Happy October! 

 Hello all, and Happy October!

I just had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend with my family and amazing girlfriend! 
Currently I'm back in Montreal, for another week of learning to push buttons and turn knobs. It has been fairly interesting, but being away from home is tough. However, it has brought inspiration for songwriting, so that is still continuing! Currently working on a new song that is taking me out of my comfort zone, but it is making some interesting results. I hope to eventually record some new songs, but I have no idea when that will be... so hang in there!!

You can now listen to the entirety of my EP right here on my website at the music player at the bottom of the page! So take a listen and grab yourself a copy on iTunes if you so desire!

Other than that, there is some amazing music being released! Here's some of the music I'm looking forward to/just purchased this month:

1) Peter Gabriel - New Blood - An amazing reworking of PG's new and old tracks with a gorgeous sounding orchestra!
2) Ben Folds - The Best Imitation of Myself - Ben Fold's collection of hits, B-Sides, never released tracks, and a few new tunes from BEN FOLDS FIVE!!
3) Coldplay- Mylo Xyloto (October 24th)
4) Arkells - Michigan Left (October 18th)

I hope you are all having a great month! Keep checking back for more!

Thanks,
Graydon


A New Adventure 

 Hello!

Well this is my first 'blog' post. I plan/hope to update this throughout the next year. So make sure you keep checking back! 

I've just moved to Montreal (on Sept 1st) to take a year-long course in Audio Recording and Production at Recording Arts Canada. It has been quite the week. There is a lot to take in in this city and at the new school. I chose to do take this course so I can emerse myself deeper into the realm of music. After taking 4 years of Music as a university level, I feel as a musician, I have grown and am now at the stage where I can truly believe in my skills and put them to use. But of course there will always be more learning to be done! This next year of education will teach me all about the other side of music. Removed from the realm of song-writing, composing and arranging, this school will teach me the skills to be able to record and produce my music and the music of others. Maybe this will become my future career? I don't know...

But don't worry, I will still be writing and working on new music as well as trying to get some new gigs and shows planned! Montreal is a very artsy city, so eventually I will be trying to get some shows booked. Also, when I get a little further into the recording school, I hope to record my new songs and get them out and available for everyone! More news on that in a few months.

Other than that, I'm still working on getting my new EP 'Windchimes' promoted and sent around. I'm also looking for any reviews anyone has for it! Please send me an email, comment on this blog, facebook me, tweet me, or yell at me! I WANT TO HEAR from you all!! And if you haven't picked up a copy yet you can get it quite easily on many different websites! Such as iTunes!!! 
Windchimes - EP - Graydon Campbell

I hope everyone's September is going well! For those of you heading back to school like me, I wish you a successful year!
