Renowned for their distinctive songwriting, unique sound with beautifully produced recordings, onstage chemistry and electrifying live shows, European and British blues award nominees the Starlite Campbell Band are Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell who fell in love on stage and married following a whirlwind musical romance.
With their fresh taste of original ’70s British rock and British blues, the husband and wife duo have been on an exciting roller-coaster of a musical ride following the release of their debut album ‘Blueberry Pie’ to rave reviews worldwide and a prestigious nomination for Best Album in the European Blues Awards.
The band’s exciting and highly anticipated second album ‘The Language of Curiosity’ is released on November 5th, 2021 supported by festival performances at the Carlisle Blues Rock Festival, UK, Bluesroute Helmond, NL and headline tour dates in UK, Germany, Czech Republic and Portugal with more dates being added.
‘The Language of Curiosity’ is a collection of stories about different facets of post-modern real-life experiences from working for the man, attitudes towards lust, passion and casual sex, space travel, social systems and abuse by power and money, war and the global refugee crisis, gatekeepers in the music industry, people giving up and growing old before their time and 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, drunken echoes of slide and lap steel, 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 three single releases have garnered fantastic feedback including BBC Radio 2 amongst other national and international radio and festival enquiries; there is a palpable sense of excitement and buzz surrounding the release of their highly anticipated second album.
‘The Language of Curiosity’ is released on November 5, 2021, on Supertone Records and is available to preorder now direct from the band’s website, Amazon, iTunes and in all major outlets with European distribution by Continental Records.
