Owen Campbell...Blues Singer Songwriter and Guitarist ...upcoming tour and new album release

Owen Campbell is playing a month long tour in Australia in April May commencing with the Deni Blues Festival along side of Elvis Costello, Doobie Brothers and John Mayer, and finishing at the Broadbeach Blues Festival a month later.  He is then going over to the USA to support his debut release there through Reckless Grace Music form Florida.

Owen has been playing guitar since he was 9 years old and is one of Australia’s most talented slide guitar players and songwriters. Along with his unflinching ability to sing it sweet and play it dirty, he creates a perfect blend of melody that’s simple but right. In addition to playing all over the world, including Ireland, UK, Denmark, Italy, India, Austria, Germany and Papua New Guinea, Owen has had the privilege of performing at some of the most prestigious Blues festivals in the world: The Himalayan Blues Festival in Katmandu (2008/2010), Nepal, Copenhagen Writers Festival and the Thredbo Blues Festival at home in Australia.
