European blues awards nominees the Starlite Campbell Band consists of husband and wife duo Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell working as a four piece with some of the world’s finest musicians.
The band is steeped in British blues – think Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers and early Led Zeppelin. With contemporary original songs inspired by real life and real people, they have a sound and vibe reminiscent of the mid 60’s to early 70’s.
Starlite and Campbell, who married after a whirlwind musical romance, released their debut album ‘Blueberry Pie’to rave reviews worldwide and a prestigious nomination for Best Album in the European Blues Awards. The album is available as a high quality digital download, a gatefold CD and following generous support by the Isle of Man Arts Council, a limited edition, gatefold, double 180g vinyl record which contains the new single ‘Heart Of Stone’ as a bonus track.
With extensive international radioplay charting top 10 in the UK, Australia, The Netherlands and American Blues Charts and over 40 four and five star reviews worldwide, the Starlite Campbell Band leave an indelible impression on audiences of all ages and musical backgrounds.
From Suzy’s addictive, fun-loving bass groove and thunderous tone to Simon’s explosive vocals and fretwork, the band is joined by keyboard maestro Jonny Henderson on Hammond/Wurlitzer (Robben Ford / Matt Schofield) and shuffle-master Steve Gibson on drums (Chris Farlowe / Larry Garner).
The art of the song is everything and Starlite and Campbell fly in the face of disposable music - writing, recording and producing their work and then releasing on their independent label Supertone Records.
