Regular visitors will recognise the name Christopher CoShea Campbell; he’s cropped up in a couple of previous posts; specifically he narrated the Eddie & Ernie post and I dropped his cover of Standing At The Crossroads into part 4 of my “Funk, Jazz, Disco?” mixes.
For non-regular visitors, Christopher CoShea Campbell is the son of the late Eddie Campbell (of Eddie & Ernie fame); but a talented musician in his own right.
For some time Christopher CoShea and I have been discussing the dropping of another of his tunes (this time an original composition) into another Bootsy (Collins) influenced mix. However, despite my Bootsy collection continuing to expand I am finding less and less time to be able to stand at the decks mixing. So, after some more discussion we agreed it would be cool to just drop this tune on you all … as a world exclusive!
In his own words I’ll let Christopher CoShea tell you about the song and his upcoming album:
“This is an original track from my upcoming solo funk rock album which will consist of 14 original songs, including my cover of Eddie and Ernie’s song Standing at the Crossroads.
“The guitar heavy album which is written and produced by me, and I’m playing all of the instruments, is an amalgam of influences that ranges from Hendrix, Parliament-Funkadelic, early Prince, Bootsy to Zeppelin & Bowie. But also along with the musicality are pop hooks and radio friendliness.”Christopher CoShea - Blackbird Singing Acappella
