The Basement, NSW
This event has passed and sales are now closed
Owen Campbell has been playing guitar since he was 9 years old and is one of Australia's most talented slide guitar players and song-writers. With his gravelly blend of blues, roots, soul and country, and a voice that belies his 28 years, along with his 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 blues?"
His voice fits the down south mood: languid and unforced with an air of simple honesty.."(canberrajazz.net)
Described as "Possibly one of the best performers to come out of Australia for quite some time, amazing lap steel slide guitar and a songwriting ability that belies his years"(Argus News, Ireland). Campbell combines a moving, gutsy, old-time sound that marries authenticity with incredible energy.
It's 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.
Owen has been touring non-stop, impressing audiences all over the globe, from Ireland and the UK,India, Austria and Papua New Guinea,?to the highest Blues Festival in the world; The Himalayan Blues Festival in Kathmandu (2008/2010), Nepal, as well as at home in Australia.?He will be touring Australia with his band to promote his new album "Sunshine Road"
Owen is something different. The music issuing forth was Australian Blues; raunchy and interesting...." IRISH NEWS 2009
