Fraser Campbell is an award-winning recording artist and worship leader from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Fraser's music is dynamic and creative and his live performances are full of undeniable passion, pounding energy, musical ingenuity and sincere honesty. Stylistically, his electric/rock/dance sounds have been compared to those of David Crowder and Jeremy Riddle, and are consistently pulling audiences out of their seats. In addition, Fraser's Celtic roots always seem to surface and provide his performances with an organic richness similar to groups like Gungor and Mumford & Sons. "My musical influences are diverse," says Campbell, "Including everything from Delirious, Jimmy Eat World and DC Talk, to Psalty and Peter, Paul & Mary .
Early on in his life Fraser Campbell displayed a gift for music. Throughout his childhood, Fraser constantly wrote, composed and performed music to any audience he could garner. By the time he was a teenager, Fraser was performing concerts and regularly leading worship. Fast forward to the present day, Fraser continues to perform and lead worship, but those audiences that once consisted of 4 stuffed animals and a little sister are now audiences that number in the thousands.
Several significant miles mark Fraser's musical journey. In 2007, Fraser became the Worship Director at New Life Community Fellowship in Victoria, B.C., enabling him to develop a deeper understanding of the needs of a church congregation. This position also allowed him to develop a heart and passion for the health of the local and city church, making him a safe and desired musical guest at churches across North America.
In 2010, Fraser released his first full-length worship album entitled "We Love You." Blending electric, edgy pop-anthems with intimate, honest songs of assurance and hope, "We Love You" focuses on God's love for His children and their love for Him in return. The album has earned glowing reviews and its songs have received strong airplay on Christian radio and satellite stations both nationally and internationally. Fraser's songs are also being utilized by worship, youth and young adult ministries throughout North America.
In 2012, Fraser was awarded a Covenant Award by the Canadian Gospel Music Association for his work in producing and recording the compilation album, "Worship Victoria". Fraser brought together worship leaders from Victoria churches to record an album that would both promote unity within the church of Victoria and also raise funds for youth at risk. Fraser continues to place a strong emphasis on the unity and advancement of the city church and regularly leads worship at Victoria city-wide events and pastoral prayer meetings.
Fraser also has the gift/ability to reach and communicate with youth and draw them to new places of freedom in worship. Fraser is highly sought-after by conference organizers and youth ministry leaders across Canada. He has a strong desire to see youth and young adults understand God's love and experience the amazing gift of worship. These passions have resulted in Fraser becoming very influential and active in efforts to see younger generations going into deeper places of intimacy and relationship with the King.
Although music is a passion that continues to ignite Fraser, above all, his greatest passion is his role as husband and father. "I have the most grace-full and beautiful wife, and the most hilarious and amazing kids," says Campbell. "I strongly believe that this family keeps my life balanced and my ministry healthy".
Surrounded by the love of his family and lead by the God he sings to, Fraser continues to make music as he travels across the continent, ministering out of the grace poured out in his own life. If you ever have the chance to share in an evening of Fraser's live music or even just sit down and listen to one of his songs at home, you won't be disappointed.
