Who are you and what are you doing here?
My name is Anais Campbell and I am a singer/ songwriter here to share a bit about my story!
When did you know you wanted to pursue music as a career?
When I was little, I sung around the house for my parents, the first home video we have of me singing is a grand performance of ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ sung into a hair brush. I guess I’ve always known I would love to be a performer. I have always been a part of choirs, singing ensembles and music programs throughout my schooling years and always loved it.
How would you describe your music?
A mixture of country, Pop and folk. Mainly acoustic music with guitar or piano, easy listening especially. Most of the music I perform is originals, written with a lot of heart and meaning.
If you had to choose one song you’ve written that best defines your sound which one would it be?
Currently I would say ‘To Our Home’, my latest single from my Deluxe EP ‘Push Through’. It is upbeat and fun, and the lyrics are based around life changes and travelling to new destinations whether that be literal or figurative. I think it perfectly represents where I am at in my life as a person and therefore reflects where my music ideas stem from.
In this day and age where anyone is pretty much able to pick up an instrument, what would you say sets you apart from the rest?
I think it is easy for someone to learn an instrument but what can’t be learnt is passion and a love of music. That can’t come from a teacher or a YouTube tutorial. I believe I have a love of music which is very individual to anyone else. I sing because I feel like I have something to share with the world and that drive is portrayed in my music. It’s not how well you can play an instrument, it’s actually HOW you play it. With enthusiasm and joy or not.
Where can people hear your music?
All of my original music is available on Spotify, iTunes and soon to be YouTube for one of the singles! These links can be found on my website and social media pages

Are you playing any shows anytime soon?
I am! I am playing at The Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2018 and Country Rocks Sydney Festival 2018! The Tamworth dates and locations are on my website, which can be found here.
What is your proudest moment/greatest achievement as a musician?
Definitely receiving the opportunity to record my original music in Nashville. I travelled to the country music capital in two trips in late 2016 and early 2017 to record a Deluxe EP, film my first official music video and perform at live venues such as the Bluebird Cafe. It was the most rewarding experience, and learnt from the best of the industry. The knowledge and lessons I received will stay with me all of my years.
Tell us 3 bands that we should be listening to/be keeping an eye out for?
Easy: Ball Park Music. London Grammar. The Kite String Tangle.
Anything Else you’d like to add?
