Corrin Campbell (born October 12, 1988) is a vocalist, bassist, songwriter, and pianist. Corrin is also an active-duty soldier in the United States Army and is currently stationed with United States Army Recruiting Command at Fort Knox, KY. Her job is considered one-of-a-kind - she is the only original music artist to be endorsed by a branch of the military. She now lives in Nashville, Tennessee.


Hailing from Duluth, Minnesota, Corrin Campbell, upon graduating high school, joined the United States Army and served as a bass guitar player and vocalist in the Army Band Field.

In addition to regular bandsman duties, she also participated in the 2003 U.S. Army Soldier Show: a 90-minute live musical review showcasing active duty soldiers. The show assembled in six weeks and then toured for 7 months in the continental United States, Cuba, and portions of Korea. Crowds would range from 100 to 13,000 people. During this time she was featured in promotional TV and radio interviews while on tour, and also performed behind Wynonna Judd at the 2003 Army Birthday Ball.[1]

From 2004 to 2005, she deployed with the 1st Cavalry Division to Baghdad in Operation Iraqi Freedom II. As a lead singer of the rock group, band leader of the jazz como, and bass player of the Latin band, nearly every day contained a musical mission. Most days consisted of travel by Blackhawk to entertain soldiers across Iraq. She was featured at many high-profile shows, including the farewell parties of General Ricardo Sanchez and Ambassador Paul Bremer. She also met and opened for Robin Williams, Ted Nugent and Toby Keith when their USO tours came through Baghdad.

Campbell served three years with the Maryland National Guard Band before returning to active duty in November 2009. She then served with the Army Materiel Command Band at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. It was while stationed here that Campbell was selected to play at Lilith Fair in Columbia, Maryland.[2]

Campbell relocated to the Nashville, Tennessee area when the Army Materiel Command Band moved to Redstone Arsenal, Alabama in November 2010 [3] and is now employed as the featured artist with the U.S. Army Musical Outreach Team.[4]

Live Performances [8][edit]


“My Army career fine tuned me into a self-aware and objective musician. I learned to acknowledge my weaknesses so they could be strengthened. When I got out, I knew I wanted to pursue music and continue with the skills the Army ingrained in me.”
-Corrin Campbell regarding what her time in the U.S. Army taught her.[16]

"...we recorded "Exhibit A" and "Game Night" and did all the production ourselves with just a home studio. We're pretty proud of it!"
-Junior's Cave Magazine [17]

“I’m a person, just like you. And, by the way, I’m in the Army and they’ve offered me so many opportunities and I am the person I am because of it. I think it really opens the door to an audience that may not even think about the military otherwise.”
-Army MWR Interview[18]


"Finding an original sound in the female pop/rock world is a hard task, but it doesn’t seem that way for Corrin Campbell. Her music displays many sides of her natural talent as Campbell shifts from harder electric guitar rock to the softer side of piano ballads. She has successfully found her footing and one step at a time, is sure to reach to top of the mountain of musical success."
- Lisa Perron of Target Audience Magazine [19]

"'Exhibit A' is a CD with memorable tunes combined with appealing lyrics that you want to learn right away so you can sing along!"
- Alicia and the RadioIndy Review Team [20]

"If her eight-song EP, Exhibit A, is any indication, we’ll be hearing a lot more of Ms. Campbell in the coming years. Sweetly seductive vocals combine with girl-next-door good looks giver her an instant appeal for fans of the current crop of twenty-something female hitmakers. But it is her ability to turn of a phrase that lifts her above the crowd."
-Mike Parker of [21]

"The talented musician Corrin Campbell is the perfect choice for music lovers who love music with catchy hooks, strong female fronted vocals, and melodious tunes."
-Junior's Cave Magazine [17]


Campbell announced that her band was recording a new EP at Dark Horse Recording Studio in March 2012.[22] She also stated that Shae Padilla of KSM (band) would be featured as a guitarist.[23]

On April 2, via the band's official blog, Corrin also announced that the band would be recording more songs to complete a full-length album "Gilded" for release May 21, 2013. It was also stated that the album would be released under "Corrin Campbell & the Election" instead of as a solo-artist record. The band released a single in the meantime entitled "Not for Sale" on June 5, 2012.[24]
