Sister Rena live by Lomond Campbell

Trust Me #44

Sister Rena by Lomond Campbell

A couple of people I follow on social media posted a video of Lomond Campbell performing his song/composition Sister Rena after hearing the song on Mary Anne Hobbes 6 Music show.

It's really, really beautiful. Melodic, dreamy, moving, cinematic ... there are hints of sadness, melancholy ... there is plenty of space .... it is just gorgeous ... sublime. Take 4-minutes from your day and get lost in this gem. 

The DIY home video (below) is also a joy. Campbell is lost in the moment, his dog alongside him (watch for the loving cuddle at the end as they 'get it') and sheep baa-ing in the background. 

I first heard of him when he was a member of the FOUND collective. He's now based up in Fort William where he is constantly creating music, building his own instruments and also producing others - including Kathryn Joseph. Campbell is always up to something, a true artist, and seems to have found the space and environment to thrive in. 

I believe that Lomond should have an album out in the not too distant future. One to keep an eye out for.

Check Campbell's treasure trove of a website for loads of other live videos, projects and ideas.
