Troy Campbell

Inspired by his experiences collaborating with Danish singer-songwriter Poul Krebs, Troy Campbell founded The House of Songs in 2009 as a one-year project to bring Danish artists to Austin. It has since expanded to 14 countries and a second home in Bentonville, Arkansas. In 2016, Campbell's efforts earned him the Folk Alliance International Spirit of Folk Award. He also won an Emmy, a Telly and several Pollie awards (from the American Association of Political Consultants), plus multiple film festival awards, for his live-action and animated productions as co-owner of Collection Agency Films. Also a music consultant for Warner Bros. Television, Campbell started out as a musician. An album by his 1990s band, Loose Diamonds, made the New York Times' annual top 10 list; a track from his last release, "Long in the Sun," was a USA Today top-10 pick. In Denmark, his recordings with Krebs achieved platinum- and gold-disc status.
