NA TURNÉ - LISTOPAD 2020 |
Starlite Campbell Band je britská skupina blues založená manželským párem a věhlasnými muzikanty Suzy Starlite a Simonem Campbellem. Jejich debutové album Blueberry Pie bylo nominováno na cenu European Blues Award (2017) a mísí britské a americké blues...
The Starlite Campbell Band headlined the Saturday night to an audience of 5,000 people in the Blues Big Top at the Wangaratta festival of jazz & blues in their Australian debut last year and will be performing on the main stage at The Great British Blues & Rock Festival (UK) in January 2020 plus Porgy & Bess and Flirting with the Blues Festival (NL) in November/December, 2019.
The Starlite Campbell Band are husband and wife duo Simon Campbell (British Blues Awards nominee) and Suzy Starlite working with some of the world's finest musicians and are now joined by Josh Phillips from legendary band Procol Harum on Hammond organ and Wurlitzer electric piano for festival and large venue bookings.
The band is steeped in British blues – think early Led Zeppelin, The Faces and Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac. With contemporary original songs inspired by real life and real people, they have a sound and vibe reminiscent of the mid 60’s to early 70’s.
Signed to the legendary Bepop agency (Netherlands) for all Benelux festival dates, 2019 / 2020 sees the band working in Europe and touring internationally including a series of European dates which includes The Met, UK, Backstage at the Green, Scotland, Redcar R&B club, UK, The Greystones, UK, more festivals (to be announced) and the world famous Half Moon in Putney, London, where the stage has been graced by iconic bands from The Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Elvis Costello, Kate Bush to The Who.
The Starlite Campbell Band’s debut album ‘Blueberry Pie’ received 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 and American Blues Charts and over 40 four and five star reviews worldwide, the Starlite Campbell Band leave an indelible impression on audiences of all ages and musical backgrounds.

The art of the song is everything and Starlite and Campbell fly in the face of disposable music – writing, recording ('Betty the CADAC' analog console), playing and producing their work and then releasing on their independent label Supertone Records. To make this possible, they also do all their own promotion and social media (in-house = in their own house).
As true examples of the DIY musician creating hand-made music. Suzy and Simon know that is the people they meet along the road that makes everything worthwhile; where the music brings people together in a festival field, a small club, your living room or in a live TV studio to celebrate life and each other.
