About DIGNITY ROW
Dignity Row is the brainchild of Jamie Campbell, a keyboard player/songwriter/vocalist from Glasgow.
From performing concerts as a duo with his brother when he was 6 years old, to writing his first poem at age 10, it was just a matter of time before Jamie would become a musician/songwriter. His father, Edward, was a talented craftsman who made a violin, innovative metal wind instruments, and tackled making his own piano. His brother, Eddie, is a professor in music, and writes and edits books on Music and Philosophy, found globally in every University Library.
Jamie studied Classical Piano, before discovering the joy of writing original pop songs. At age 21 his band, Cliché, was offered a recording deal from Polygram, after being discovered by Ronnie Beck, one of the people who discovered Queen. It was decided not to take the deal, and the band eventually broke up.
He then formed a number of other bands, and also played as a session keyboard player. Highlights included playing with Indie bands Kick Reaction and Big Sur, supporting Deacon Blue, Wet Wet Wet, Robert Cray and the Levellers, with a number of radio live performances and a TV performance. One lineup included James Finnigan (Bass) who went on to play with Hue & Cry and Stiltskin, and is now playing with Outside The Original, a band Jamie also plays with. That lineup also featured John Reid (Vocals) who went on to have hits with The Nightcrawlers, and is now a successful songwriter, penning hits for WestLife, Leona Lewis, Tina Turner, Taio Cruz and many others. Jamie also arranged and played keyboards on the Moira Kerr album "Glen of Weeping" which also featured Martin Taylor.
Jamie has now formed Dignity Row to record and release a catalogue of his new songs, collaborating with a number of great musicians he has worked with. The musicians involved in recording the first album are :
Gavin Paterson - a versatile Studio engineer/drummer and keyboard player from Cumbernauld who runs his own studio (STUDIO 1790). https://studio1790.com/ Gavin plays drums regularly with a range of different bands and is working on his second album with his own band, Eriska, https://www.eriska.net/ a six-piece Glasgow-based folk band established in 2016. The band's line-up includes members from the traditional music, jazz, and classical courses at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
Dario Palazzo – a versatile guitarist from Hamilton who graduated with a Music degree from Edinburgh College. Dario plays guitar regularly with a range of different bands and appeared on the first Eriska alongside Gavin.
Hermie Longalong – a virtuoso Saxophonist from Hamilton who was born in the Phillipines, and after graduating in Music plied his trade in Japan and the USA. Hermie has featured in many of Jamie’s bands covering a number of different musical genres. Hermie is in demand from many other established bands, and toured in the Far East with Carol Kidd.
Hannah Meg (hanfothmusic) - a talented young singer/songwriter from Glasgow, and a graduate from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Hannah has refined her trade performing with cover bands as well as solo gigs featuring her own original songs.
Catherine Anne Tierney - an excellent vocalist from Ayrshire who covers a number of different genres. Cat performs in a number of different covers bands, as well as a new Prog Metal band, Tarysian, and has laid down vocals on a number of Dignity Row songs.
Christopher Campbell - an excellent singer originally from Glasgow, now based in London. Christopher learned his trade performing and recording with covers bands for the last 8 years old, covering an impressive range of genres. Christopher also fronted a band called “The Cover Boys” who performed throughout the UK and Ireland.
Emma Gabarda - An exciting French singer, now based in Glasgow. Emma sang lead vocals on the Dignity Row song "Perfect Day", has an impressive education/background in music marketing, and is also a radio presenter for JohnstoneSound radio.
Jamie is also working on writing songs for other artists being commissioned by publishers (23rd Precint/SONY etc), as well as a number of other projects, so this helps keep the song writing as diverse as possible.
