“Starlite Campbell Band continue to push the boundaries of British rock and British blues!” JD Nash, American Blues Scene
‘The Language of Curiosity’ is a collection of stories about real-life experiences from working for the man, casual sex, space travel, bouncers on the doors of the music industry, people giving up and growing old before their time to feel good ‘70s inspired British rock and British blues; it’s like looking at different sides of a Rubik’s cube.
From full-on rock ’n’ roll tribal drums, thunderous bass, badass dirty guitar riffs, melting melodies and vocal harmonies combined with old school valve guitar amps and analog tape machines – Starlite & Campbell have a very British sound!
With a vibe and feel reminiscent of the mid-’60s to early ’70s British rock & British blues; think Peter Green, Faces, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin but not like those really… more like Starlite-Campbell!
The past four single releases including rocking new single ‘Gaslight’ have garnered fantastic feedback including BBC Radio 2 and international radio and festival enquiries – there is a palpable sense of excitement and buzz surrounding the release of their highly anticipated second album.
See you there for a fun night of 70’s original British rock & blues!
