Campbell is a songwriter from Australia now based in Bristol. This three-song EP consists of songs grounded in his faith and have a folk feel to them. "Lion" is a praise number in reference to the Lion of Judah but has somewhat strange lyrics like "Though he's strong/He's the coat that keeps me warm" and a slightly annoying repeated "wo wao wao wao wao". The short (two mins 31) second track "Resource" has a catchy refrain and "Set Sail" continues with another memorable chorus. There are some nice melodies here but the whole project is yearning for better production with a more polished sound and less obtuse lyrics.
