Owen Campbell has been playing guitar since he was 9 years old, which has made him one of Australia’s most talented slide guitar players and songwriters. With his gravelly blend of blues, roots, soul & country, and a voice that belies his 28 years, Owen has the unflinching ability to sing it sweet and play it dirty.
He creates a perfect blend of melody that’s simple but right, as is the way with the blues… Campbell combines a moving, gutsy, old time sound that marries authenticity with incredible energy. Described as “possibly one of the best performers to come out of Australia in quite sometime, amazing lap steel slide guitar and a song writing ability that belies his years” (Argus News Ireland),
Its honest music that tells a story, rich with influences from The Band, Van Morrison, Townes Van Zandt, a little Johnny Cash, and the raspy emotion of Ray Lamontagne, Campbell’s bluesy drawl melded with a soulful slide guitar, beckons his audience to join him in his steamy, swampy, growling world.
"Sunshine Road" peaked at #1 on the over all iTunes charts in 2012 and spawned 7 top 10 singles on the iTunes Blues charts. The recently released album "The Pilgrim" has also reached the #1 spot on the Australian, New Zealand and Canadian iTunes blues charts.
