European blues award nominees the Starlite Campbell Band is a four piece steeped in British blues – think Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers and early Led Zeppelin. With contemporary songs inspired by real life and real people, they have a sound and vibe reminiscent of the mid 60’s to early 70’s.

Simon Campbell was born and raised in Bury and always very active in the music scene featuring in bands such as Whitefire, The Disciples, Roadrunner and Little Brother.

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.

With extensive international radio play charting top 10 in the UK, Australia, The Netherlands and American Blues Charts and over forty 4 and 5 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.
