Owen Campbell is one of Australia's premiere Blues/Roots/Rock performers who defies easy categorisation. He's a slide guitarist, a songwriter, banjo player, blues singer, busker, and more.

After a spell off the road, Owen is coming back with a new release, new songs and a fresh approach.

Known for his controversial appearance on Australia's Got Talent and constant touring and busking around the World, Owen's last three albums have been big budget productions, working in the US with the likes of Devon Allman amongst others. They have netted Owen continuous top 10 iTunes chart positions over the last 6 years, serving him well. Even as this is written Owen currently has the #2, #3 and #4 album on the Australian iTunes Charts (Blues). It is, however, time for a change and an opportunity for the artist to get back to his roots and a more natural song-writing process.

Owen will be touring new material this September through December in Part 1 and 2 of the Take Your Medicine Tour. Owen's performance for 'Metro Social' will be in full band mode.

"Seasoned musician with a mountain of talent." - Sydney Morning Herald
"Possibly one of the best performers to come out of Australia for quite sometime, amazing lap steel slide guitar and a songwriting ability that belies his years." - Argus News Ireland
"Impressive, Rootsy and Real." - Jazz Weekly USA
"This (Breathing Bullets) is a very good album with strong, diverse songwriting that shows a lot of promise for songs not yet written, but eagerly awaited." - Blues Blast Magazine
