As the youngest of Glen Campbell’s eight children, Ashley Campbell‘s standard of quality for songwriting has always been understandably high. Following in her father’s footsteps, Campbell channelled her interest in music by learning the banjo and eventually performing in the senior Campbell’s touring band during his 2011-2012 farewell tour. Campbell released a few solo singles in the years after that tour, and after the passing of the late country legend last year, Campbell doubled down on her own songwriting.
The result is The Lonely One – a baker’s dozen of original arrangements written and performed by Campbell, and produced by her brother Cal. The Lonely One cements Campbell’s merits as a solo artist, whose talent speaks for itself despite it’s connection to the country great. Parched for a piece of The Lonely One? Campbell’s debut full-length comes out at the tail end of this week but you can get a glimpse right now with “Cry”.
