CHRIS BLEVINS’ “GRIEF, LOVE & OTHER GIFTS” OUT APRIL 23
New album features 21-year-old Enid singer-songwriter Chloe-Beth Campbell
TULSA, Okla. April 8, 2021 – Tulsa musician Chris Blevins follows up his 2017 debut with “Grief, Love & Other Gifts,” out April 23 on the nonprofit Horton Records. The album is a collaboration with Chloe-Beth Campbell, a 21-year-old singer songwriter from Enid. An album release show is scheduled that same evening at Tulsa’s Mercury Lounge, beginning at 8 PM, Brian Horton, president of Horton Records announced today.
Singer songwriter and guitarist Blevins is known for his authentic delivery, as well as his ability to weave tales of everyday life, honesty and the frailty of the human condition. Many of the songs on this latest album are relationship-driven, and Chloe-Beth’s heartfelt harmonies and emotive vocals are a perfect pairing for Blevins’ songcraft.
“Horton Records mission is all about supporting Oklahoma artists,” says Brian Horton. “We’re pleased for this opportunity to showcase the talents of two of the state’s up-and-coming singer songwriters, along with a supporting band packed with exceptional Oklahoma musicians.”
In addition to Blevins and Chloe-Beth, “Grief, Love & Other Gifts,” features Johnny Mullenax (guitar), Paul Wilkes (bass), Andrew Bair (piano, organ), Matt Teegarden (drums) and Hank Early (pedal steel).

Tulsa guitarist and singer-songwriter Chris Blevins was working in a post office in his hometown of Henryetta, Okla., writing songs and performing on the side, when he knew he’d have to choose between his full-time job or his music. He hasn’t looked back since. Belvins’ debut record was 2017’s “Better Than Alone.”
Enid musician Chloe-Beth Campbell was born in Coral Springs, Fla., where her mom was a worship leader in a Pentecostal church and her dad was a soundman. Chloe-Beth moved to Oklahoma in 2006. Growing up, her home was filled with church, classical and Celtic music. In addition to those early influences, Chloe-Beth’s musical interests grew to encompass bands like the Killers and Florence + The Machine, along with other Okie songwriters like Ali Harter and Samantha Crain. Chloe’s debut album, “Remnant” was released in 2018. More at chloebethmusic.com.
