New Season, New Faces: Spectrum Welcomes Graham Campbell
Guitarist, composer, and lover of avocados and toboggans: Graham is the newest addition to Spectrum’s intrepid team of Artistic Producers.
Tell us a little about yourself? When did you first pick up a guitar, and when did you know it would be something you wanted to pursue seriously?
I started guitar in 6th grade, but before that I had taken piano lessons since I was 5. I think I always knew from a young age that I wanted music to be my life, but it was in high school when guitar really began to be my favourite instrument to play.
I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore what being an artistic producer is all about. A whole new outlet for creativity has just opened up for me through Spectrum. It’s not just about making music but putting together entire programs and finding ways to have the greatest impact on an audience.
If I Wasn’t a Guitarist I’d be a: goat farmer
