Award Winning Power Duo Campbell & Johnston Release New Album, Paisley Hearts

with Upbeat Soul Rock Jam “Don’t Get Down (On a Good Thing)”




Award-winning power duo Campbell & Johnston are a soulful blend of vintage blues-rock, roots and folk with a modern twist. Trading off lead vocals, harmonies and guitar solos, the two are a musical yin and yang, captivating audiences with raw emotion and heartfelt authenticity. Whether experiencing their performance as an acoustic duo, or with their full electric band, the chemistry is palpable and the musicianship is top-notch. 

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness all led towards their album, Paisley Hearts, setting the stage for a jam-packed year of touring ahead. The new collection is centered around love and loss, regret, righteousness…and smoking hash and drinking coffee. 

Don’t Get Down (On a Good Thing) serves as a “tongue and cheek reminder that this too shall pass, and a war of attrition can only be won one way, by staying the course,” says Johnston.

Campbell & Johnston’s debut album, Cambpell & Johnston's Black Market Band, earned them the 22’ ECMA for Best Blues Album and a Maple Blues nomination. Campbell also received the Rooted To The Island Award from Music PEI in 2023. You may have heard their music from popular Canadian TV shows like Hudson & Rex and Sullivan’s Crossing or saw them open for some big names like Steve Earle, Burton Cummings and Bob Seger.
