Brittany Campbell "My Garden" Video

Brittany Campbell relocated to Chicago from New York to join the cast of Hamilton about a year ago. Back in April she released her latest album “Stay Gold” (now available on vinyl), and today she dropped a wonderful video for the single “My Garden” from that album.

Brittany is also teaming up with Candace Quarrels to make beautiful music as the duo Mermaid. We can’t wait to hear more from both of them.

New Davey and the Chains LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

A chill, fluid groove is ever present on Shimmy, the new album from Davey and the Chains. A gentle, surf sway and sparkle off the recording create a cozy, hip-shaking record. The laidback, fire-burning nostalgia with psychedelic threads that flare up, at times, cruises on the mellow, melodic waves but rips when the moment is right. Let it ride.
