Chris Campbell (aka Lovely Nothing) is a Producer, Songwriter and Multi-Instrumentalist with a pretty eclectic musical career. As a kid in Ireland, he grew up on a heavy dose of all things Pop Punk, Skate Punk and Emo, making the rounds in a series of locally successful bands as a co-writer and guitarist. He bought a Roland 8-track and started making rough and ready records for his friends' bands after skating together.
After the loss of his best friend in 2008 there was a shift. He spent time in Toronto, writing deeply introspective folk music on an unplugged electric guitar on sleepless nights. It was a genre he'd never considered before, and it would be the official beginning of his career. He returned to Ireland and began to build a following for his heartbreaking songs and voice. He spent the next years touring, selling out modest shows across the UK and Europe - sharing the stage with bands like Fleet Foxes, Nathaniel Rateliff, Lucy Rose, Ben Howard, Nashville Icon Amanda Shires and more, to critical acclaim.
After a hiatus from touring back in Toronto in 2014, he moved to Atlanta, GA in 2017 with a new goal in mind - write and produce for incredible artists.
These days, Chris is building a reputation for providing an emotional edge and diverse voice across genres, most recently writing all kinds of Pop for Indie talent in LA, Phoenix, ATL, New York and overseas. He's had songs in Spotify's New Music Friday Playlist and pushed viral TikTok duo 76th St past one million subscribers with last year's song "In My Bones".
Currently, he listens to a lot of IDLES, 6lack, Billie Eilish, Blink 182, Bon Iver, Run The Jewels and The National.
So yeah. Eclectic.
