Sales Information:

The pairing first took shape through a chance meeting between Cornell Campbell
and Hopcraft in Kingston, Jamaica early in 2011. A session was arranged at Bunny
Lee’s recording studio in West Kingston and, within days, the collaboration produced
the sweet ‘I’ll Never Leave’, a homage to Cornell’s island home country in Parish of
St Elizabeth. The dub version of the track was released alongside Soothsayers’
‘We’re Not Leaving’ in August 2011 and the Cornell Campbell version followed on
a 45 on Soothsayers’ own Red Earth label a month later.
Now signed to Strut, the collaboration has recorded a full album, a conscious and
roots-based set with Cornell Campbell’s iconic, sweet vocals underpinned by deep,
dubby rhythm section work and some fresh, intricate arrangements. Hopcraft adds,
“We gave Cornell recordings of some ideas we had been working on. He took them
away and developed some lyrics. Idris and I also wrote a few complete songs that
Cornell loved and he blessed them with his vocals.”
Within the tracklist, the collective revisits Cornel’s poignant 1970s sufferer’s classic
‘Jah Jah Me No Born Yah’ augmented by the addition of horns and Hammond organ
bringing out the Moorish melodies of the original. Soothsayers also bring their trademark
fusion of influences to the table and move Cornell’s sound into bold new
directions, rocking on a rolling Afro groove for the hard-hitting ‘Nothing Can Stop
Us’ and simmering on the downtempo reggae soul gem, ‘There’s A Fire’.
The album carries forward the considerable legacy of Campbell’s recordings over
the last half century, from his early work with “Coxsone” Dodd at Studio One to
‘70s and ‘80s classics with Joe Gibbs, Bunny “Striker” Lee, King Tubby and Winston
“Niney” Observer. For Soothsayers, the album is the culmination of ten years leading
the London live scene. Comprising musicians that have played with many top artists
including Mulatu Astatke, Jerry Dammers’ Spatial AKA Arkestra and Hugh Masekela,
the band are known for their excellent collaborations with Johnny Clarke, Maxi Jazz
(Faithless), Keziah Jones and more and form the nucleus of the band that backed
the London leg of the ‘Fela!’ musical during 2011. The band cemented their
reputation with the self-released album ‘Human Nature’ during 2012. As The
Independent On Sunday testified, “The grooves are solid, the playing immaculate
and the three-part vocal harmonies the icing on the cake.”
Cornell Campbell & Soothsayers’ ‘Nothing Can Stop Us’, part of the Inspiration
Information series on Strut, is released in June 2013 on CD, LP and digital formats.
