The Harmonie German Club comes alive this Friday night with the awesomely talented Owen Campbell and we’re excited!!
Owen Campbell, who started strumming a guitar when he was 9 years old, is one of Australia’s most talented slide guitar players and songwriters. With his gravelly blend of blues, roots, soul & country – and a striking voice that will grab your attention – Owen sings it sweet and plays it dirty.
Blending melody that’s simple but right, Owen’s gutsy, old time sound marries authenticity with incredible energy. 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.
“Possibly one of the best performers to come out of Australia in quite some time, amazing lap steel slide guitar and a song writing ability that belies his years”
Argus News, Ireland
“Owen is an incredibly gifted singer and songwriter and is probably one of the best slide guitarists in the country.”
Dr Benjamin Thomas Jones, Independent Australia
“Sunshine Road” peaked at #1 on the overall iTunes charts in 2012 and spawned 7 top 10 singles on the iTunes Blues charts. The recently released album “The Pilgrim” has also reached the #1 spot on the Australian, New Zealand and Canadian iTunes blues charts, with both CDs still charting high on iTunes.
Recently signed by US label Reckless Grace, Owen wrapped up his US tour in September at the famous Viper Room on Sunset Boulevard.
