Song Premiere: Jessica Campbell, “Time”


Videos by American Songwriter

A folk-pop gem about love and life, “Time” mixes banjo riffs, handclaps, and sweeping string arrangements into one breezy package. The song kicks off Jessica Campbell’s new album, The Anchor & The Sail, which she recorded with producer Cason Cooley. On a record that features cameos by Nashville-based luminaries like Dave Barnes and Leagues guitarist Tyler Burkum, though, Campbell is still the star, armed with a pitch-perfect voice and a knack for bouncing between acoustic coffeehouse tunes and lush, radio-ready anthems.

“I believe that working through the tough and interesting dynamics of relationships can actually be the thing that bonds two people together,” she says of “Time.” “As we go through life, we are forced to go through ups and downs and time allows us to grow more wisdom as we try to make the most of out of life and the relationships we are in, whether that be family, work, or a spouse.”
