Craig Gould’s wonder filled folk classics are a delight to absorb. Carried by chunky acoustics, his tales are replete with brimming mystique and touching emotion. Listening to his music instantly evokes a strong sense of nostalgia. The mind travels to times past, reinforcing old adages and their simplistic wisdom. His compositions extol naturalistic virtues with magnanimous folklore and acoustic patterns that stay with the listener long after. In his latest album, Songs from the Campfire, he delivers intimate and insightful songs that let the mind drift into a magical reality. Taken from this album is The Campfire Song which represents Craig Gould ‘s artistic vision for the album. 

The track opens with the sound of a crackling fire, setting the stage and emotion. Specks of ember leap into a lilting bowl of wispy acoustics. Using an incongruent string layering technique, he preserves the rustic design of the genre. The dominant layer leads with a Latin rhythm, accentuated by country strings. And as the loose beat structure carried the track forward, Craig’s buoyant baritones sail through with a melancholic story. 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
