American singer/songwriter Brian Christinzio — who performs under the name BC Camplight — received widespread acclaim for his one-man band take on classic pop songwriting. Marrying well-crafted if quirky pop melodies with lyrics that often dealt with dark themes informed by his struggles with depression, Philadelphia-based Christinzio’s distinctive music attracted the attention of the U.K.-based label One Little Indian, who released his first two albums, 2005’s Hide, Run Away and 2007’s Blink of a Nihilist. Personal problems sidelined Christinzio until he made a new home in Manchester, England, signed with Bella Union, and issued How to Die in the North in 2015. His deportation from the U.K. the following year exacerbated his mental health issues ahead of 2018’s Deportation Blues, though he was eventually able to return to England and complete his Manchester Trilogy of albums with 2020’s Shortly After Takeoff.
