Owen Campbell:
With the 2014 release of Owen Campbell’s album, The Pilgrim,  Owen showcased his bluesy vocals and smoky delivery serving up images of a veteran blues guitarist and singer, with a touch of The Band’s Robbie Robertson mixed in. This was the gateway that allowed Owen to expound upon his many talents and keep fans coming back for more.
Campbell defies easy categorization, he’s a slide guitarist, a songwriter, banjo player, blues singer, busker, and more. He's the sort of performer you would expect to find in a New Orleans blues joint, but in fact, Campbell’s roots are in Canberra, Australia. While he has performed and toured internationally for more than seven years, Campbell first strummed a guitar at age 9, a gift from his musician father that launched his musical journey. 
The 30-year-old Campbell’s strongest musical influences were blues-rock musicians from America and the U.K. – and his own household.  “My father was a big influence,” he says. “But so were Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Band, and the Rolling Stones. I always liked the way The Band brought variety and diversity to their sound. So my sound has bits of country, soul, Celtic, and rock. I love the variations.”
2015 has proved to be a great year for Owen as he continues sharing his music with his fans in Australia - during the week of July 11 Owen had three songs from three different albums in the top twenty on the Australian charts.  Additionally, one of his songs garnered air time in the U.S. on ESPN College Baseball. Continuing his stride in the U.S. Owen has recorded a new album produced by Devon Allman, from the famous musical Allman family, and mixed by Grammy award winner Tom Hambridge.  This much-anticipated album is set for Worldwide release in early 2016.
