Brian Campeau (born in1980 in Ottawa) is a Canadian musician currently based in Sydney.
Having played guitar since the age of 5, Campeau began as a classical player, being taught in Paris, France. Shortly afterwards, his family moved back to his birthplace where he was exposed by new guitar teachers to different, more rock-based styles, which would serve as major influences later on. Towards the end of high-school, he and a few of his friends formed a short lived, but local successful power pop band named The Smokey Murder Sticks.
After completing a BA in philosophy in Guelph, Ontario, Campeau moved to Sydney, Australia. Campeau slowly built up his recording studio and began composing and recording increasingly complex music, involving mostly intricate guitar work and vocals, layered with programmed beats and synths. With this he recorded a few demos before finally releasing Brian Campeau and the Solitary Game in 2004.
He then recorded his follow-up album Two Faces, which was initially released through Vitamin Records in 2007.
After about two years of touring and recording, Campeau then released Mostly Winter Sometimes Spring through Inertia Music in 2009.
As well as running The Plex Recording Studio Campeau is now involved in several projects in and around Sydney.
