Camp­bell (pic­tured) has loaded up her van with surf­boards and gui­tars and ar­rived on the Coast to cel­e­brate the re­lease of her de­but al­bum, Real Life. The Amer­i­can-Aus­tralian songstress has been on the road since June, as part of a na­tional tour. Fus­ing acous­tic-pop with surf-rock, folk and reg­gae, Camp­bell says the ocean in­flu­ences her mu­sic. ‘‘I moved to Aus­tralia about 10 years ago and I started play­ing the gui­tar and surf­ing about the same time,’’ she says. ‘‘Ever since, they have gone hand-in­hand. Mu­sic is al­ways in­flu­enced by the life­style you live.’’ She says Real Life has been well re­ceived. ‘‘It’s a crafty col­lec­tion of 11 acous­tic gui­tar and ukulele driven tracks,’’ she says. Camp­bell is ex­cited to be back on the Coast. ‘‘My big­gest fan­base is here. I look for­ward to play­ing and see­ing some fa­mil­iar faces,’’ she says.

Kym Camp­bell plays The Cave, at Nobby Beach, tonight.
