"Norah Jones fans will feel right at home...she traffics in the same style as Laura Nyro and she does it very well. These songs have sinuous rhythms that Campos negotiates with ease, playing with the grooves as well as the romantic messages of the lyrics." FOUR STARS. All Music Guide

about

In 2007, when singer-songwriter Conchita Campos released her debut EP, the soul/acoustic rock based So it Goes, she explained the intimate, soul searching nature of her work as a reflection of the many geographic moves she had made both growing up and as an adult. Her childhood took her from Pasadena to Philly to The Philippines. A music major at San Francisco State, she settled in the Bay Area before her restless creative spirit took her to her current home base of New York City. Where to next? To borrow from the title of her first full length solo recording, a jazzier and more heavily grooving date featuring The Park, a well known band of her old classmates from SFSU, No One Really Knows.

While So it Goes featured tracks that Conchita recorded with two bands she was involved in, the acoustic trio Neoterics and the four piece band Conchita's Collective, No One Really Knows incorporates the trademark soul and hip-hop dynamic of The Park, which plays throughout the Bay Area and tours with various artists including British soul singer Alice Russell.

And the inner exploration continues from So it Goes. Campos, whose first love was bossa nova and whose first post college gig was in promotions at S.F. radio stations 106 KMEL and Star 101, is quickly finding her way into the hearts and good graces of fans and critics across the country. In its review of So It Goes, All Music Guide wrote: "Norah Jones fans will feel right at home...But she traffics in the same musical style as Laura Nyro…(with) sinuous rhythms that Campos negotiate with ease, playing with the grooves as well as the romantic messages." The Biloxi Sun Herald used adjectives like "funky," "catchy" and "melodic."

She has performed everywhere from the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco to NYC hotspots like The Bitter End, Crash Mansion, The Knitting Factory and The Sulu Series, a monthly Asian American Event showcase at the Bowery Poetry Club. Beyond her recording and performing endeavors, she's worked in arts education and will hopefully soon be pursuing a master's in public policy.
