Fusion Boutique & Blackheath Bar & Bistro Present Owen Campbell ‘The Rolling Thunder Of Love’ Album Launch Tour
He has performed in many corners of the world from the USA, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Spain, Holland, Japan, Hong Kong, India and even performed at the highest blues festival in the world, The Himalayan Blues Festival in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Every album upon release has hit the Top 10 on iTunes Blues Charts in over 10 countries. One of which “Sunshine Road” reached Number 1 on the overall charts(Australia), knocking Adele of the top spot in 2014.
Originally hailing from Canberra Australia, Owen began playing at the age of 9 years old, guided by a diverse range of influences and a strong musical family. By the age of 17 he was performing in clubs/pubs/busking and cutting his teeth performing wherever he could.
Today, Owen Campbell brings a gumbo-like repertoire to performances all over the world. His smouldering guitar work runs from bluesy riffs to soulful finger-picking to lap steel guitar solos using a shot glass slide.
“My parents were a big influence,” says Owen. “They introduced me to such an awesome collection of music from such a young age. Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Band, The Rolling Stones. I always loved the variety and diversity to their sounds. My sound has bits of country, soul, roots, and rock. I love the variations.”
Now, Owen is gearing up to release his 4th studio album. “I thought it was time to do something different so I enlisted a group of talented friends and musical pilgrims and we congregated at a farm style studio in the hills outside of Cootamundra, NSW. We laid down the soul of the album over a few melting summer days and I quickly realised this was going to be something special. After so many years and albums I finally feel like I’ve found my musical homeland in this album. Easily one of the most rewarding rock n roll experiences I’ve ever had the pleasure to take part in.”
