In both music and life, Brandon (he/him) and Derek Campbell (he/him) have been nearly inseparable since birth. The 27-year-old twins from Versailles, KY, got their first public singing experience in a church choir, but when they weren’t learning gospel songs, they were foregoing their classical piano practice time to perform to keyboard beats with their older brother.
The Kentucky Gentlemen, one of March’s Artist To Watch, know sharing their more serious personal experiences is just as important as showcasing their fun side. Says Derek, “We hope people see these two guys who just keep showing up as themselves. We understand the importance of where we’re going and what that means to people like us. We want to be the same folks that we wish we had always gotten to see on the main stage.”
