Owen Campbell is one of Australia's most talented slide guitar players and songwriter; playing guitar since he was 9 years old, his gravelly blend of blues, roots, soul and country makes him "Possibly one of the best performers to come out of Australia for quite some time, amazing lap steel slide guitar and a song writing ability that belies his years” (Argus News Ireland). His unflinching ability to sing it sweet with a voice that belies his young age, while playing a “dirty” blend of simple melodies to create a perfect blend of blues style music.
Campbell’s combination of a gutsy old time sound married with pure authenticity and incredible energy creates honest music that tells a rich story. With noted influences from The Band, Van Morrison, Townes Van Zandt, a little Johnny Cash, and the raspy emotion of Ray Lamontagne; Campbell’s bluesy drawl mixed with his soulful slide guitar beckons his audience to join him in his steamy, swampy, growling world. Both albums by Owen have peaked at #1 on the Australian Blues iTunes charts and many other countries around the world.
