Unearthed Review continues its inexorable progress through the Canberra musicians on the TripleJ Unearthed website.
Moving on through the “drummed” artists we come to Owen Campbell.
He has this to say about himself:
“possibly one of the best performers to come out of Australia for quite sometime…”
ARGUS NEWSPAPER IRELAND
This is real old school blues.
It’s the sort of thing that, if you’re very lucky, you hear driving late at night on the AM dial as the ionosphere goes crazy and tiny little stations from the middle of nowhere come through the dial like spirits of the dead.
Quite how Canberra produced such an earthy sound is a btit of a mystery, but it is very special.
If you like Ash Grunwald you’ll love Owen Campbell.
