CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Peer Praise for 'Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams':
"The music Larry and Teresa make when they sing together is truly transcendent, with the blend of their voices on songs that are always deeply moving." – Emmylou Harris

"Larry Campbell is like a musical iceberg. Not that he's cold in any way at all. He's as hot a player as anyone walking. It's just that the magnitude of his musicianship is not on view all at the same time. Most of it is out of sight until he decides to do something else. The songs that he does with his wife Teresa are beautiful. If there is anything missing in what he brings, she supplies it. She's a rare talent. I'm sorry, but I just can't put into words how I feel about what they do." - David Bromberg

"There is a feeling of being amongst friends that share a love for the heritage of great music. Larry and Teresa embody all that is natural and heartfelt. They sing with a passion that is at once timeless and fresh. They own this music and have an obvious deep respect for the roots from which it came." - Bill Payne (Little Feat)

LARRY CAMPBELL & TERESA WILLIAMS’ DEBUT out June 23 on Red House

LARRY CAMPBELL & TERESA WILLIAMS’ DEBUT
HONED AT LEVON HELM’S MIDNIGHT RAMBLES 
OUT JUNE 23 ON RED HOUSE
 
Listen to "Surrender to Love" at Wall Street Journal: http://on.wsj.com/1xyRU5a
In-demand guitarist/producer and singer for Dylan, Simon, Lesh, Crow, Harris, Staples, and more
 


On June 23, two of the most in-demand artists in roots music, Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, will take center stage with their self-titled debut album on Red House Records. After decades of marriage and seven years working closely with Levon Helm - Campbell as bandleader and producer (winning three Grammys for his work) and wife Williams as singer - their first album together features eight originals and three covers honed at Helm's legendary Midnight Rambles.
 
"It was the most pure musical experience I've ever had," Campbell says of their time with Helm. "It gave me the template for how to make music for the rest of my life: no egos, no agenda, no petty stuff. I got inspired to write more songs for Teresa and me to sing."
 
After Levon’s 2012 passing, they grieved, celebrated his life, and got to work finishing "Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams." They had the tunes, and, with drummer (and ace recording engineer) Justin Guip and Ramble Band member Byron Isaacs on bass, they had an ass-kicking, road-worthy band. Additionally, the lovefest of guests on Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams sweetened the pot considerably: Amy Helm’s voice melding with Larry and Teresa’s on the gorgeous Grateful Dead hymn “Attics Of My Life,” Little Feat keyboardist Bill Payne’s rollicking touch on several tracks, and Levon himself appearing on “You’re Running Wild,” a tune made famous by the Louvin Brothers, now given an Orbison touch (originally recorded during Levon’s Dirt Farmer sessions). Finally, it all dovetailed into place.
 
In addition to Helm, Campbell and Williams have played with a Who's Who of Music Icons: Bob Dylan (Rolling Stone called Larry's eight-year tenure "the greatest period of the Never Ending Tour"), Paul Simon, Phil Lesh, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow, Keith Richards, Cyndi Lauper, Hot Tuna and Mavis Staples. In addition to his Grammy wins with Helm, Campbell has won the Lifetime Achievement Award (2008) and Instrumentalist of the Year Award (2013) from the Americana Music Association.
 
With Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, this duo not only brings a lot to the table, they bring the table itself – plus the house, the still, the church, the marriage bed, the sawdust-covered floor, and abiding, unconditional love, all carried in two voices harmonizing across hills, hollers, porches, and fire escapes. Those close harmonies ride atop music made in a mountain refuge, far from the madding crowd, connected to a spirit that lives on in song.   
 
Campbell and Williams will tour the country this spring and summer, including two New York shows before album release (4/8 at Rockwood and 5/18 at City Winery) and a two-day stand at Phil Lesh's Terrapin Crossroads in San Francisco (6/18-9). See current dates below (more TBA).
