“Don’t miss them! They are terrific live!!” Music News, UK
Renowned for their onstage chemistry and electrifying live shows, European and British blues award nominees the Starlite Campbell Band are Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell who fell in love on stage and married following a whirlwind musical romance.
With their fresh taste of ’70s British rock and British blues, the husband and wife duo have been on an exciting roller-coaster of a musical ride following the release of their debut album Blueberry Pie to rave reviews worldwide and a prestigious nomination for Best Album in the European Blues Awards.
With extensive international radio play including BBC Radio 2, charting top 10 in the UK, Australia, The Netherlands, American Blues Charts plus receiving over 50 four and five-star reviews worldwide, the band have played all over the world from headlining a festival in their Australian debut to main stage performances at The Great British Rock and Blues Festival, UK to Flirting with the Blues Festival, The Netherlands.
The band’s exciting and highly anticipated second album The Language of Curiosity is released on 8 October 2021, supported by a series of headline and festival tour dates including Carlisle Blues Rock Festival, The Great British Rock and Blues Festival, UK, Bluesroute Helmond Festival, The Netherlands plus dates in Germany, Czechia, The Netherlands, Spain and Portugal.
As full-time musicians, the art of the song is everything and Starlite and Campbell fly in the face of disposable music – writing, recording, playing, engineering and producing all their own work and then releasing on their independent label Supertone Records. Their music is mastered by Jon Astley from Close to the Edge (Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, John Mayall).
The duo who tour in the famous ‘Van of Rock’ with their two labradors Hummock and Bobby return to The Met for a special homecoming gig; music fans will remember Simon Campbell who was very active in the north Manchester music scene with his bands The Method, Whitefire and The Disciples. Joining the duo on stage will be Jonny Henderson (Matt Schofield) on Hammond organ and Wurlitzer electric piano and Steve Gibson on drums (Jack Bruce / Chris Farlowe).
