She Sings the Truth About Life and Love

Frequently, a lyric pops out fully formed that feels like the truth, 
even if I don't know what it means.
~ Brooke Campbell

Singer-songwriter Brooke Campbell will tell you that her music — a mix of acoustic, folk, pop, and bluegrass — catalogues the stops in her spiritual journey. A journey to where, you might ask? To a place where Campbell can find truthful answers to her own many questions about life and love.

Though she grew up in church, Campbell was 21 before she became conscious of God. She began writing music then, too, and her talent and faith have been completely connected ever since. . . .

I am delighted to have had the opportunity to interview Brooke Campbell for today's Culture section at High Calling Blogs. To read more of my guest-post about this critically acclaimed performer, music-writer, and artistic collaborator, go here.
