Don't miss them! They're terrific live!" Music News, UK
European & British award nominees the Starlite Campbell Band husband and wife duo Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell self released their highly acclaimed second album 'The Language of Curiosity' on November 5th, 2021 on independent label Supertone Records.
Their combined songwriting skills along with a uniquely British rock & blues sound, make Starlite and Campbell, who fell in love on stage and married following a whirlwind musical romance, one hot ticket!
There aren't many artists out there who write, play, record, engineer and produce their own music themselves but that is exactly what this passionate couple do. As lovers of vinyl and all things analog, producer Simon Campbell’s production and recording techniques have a quality that was learned first-hand whilst working in recording studios in the early 70's and he has never looked back; it's not retro - it's always been this way!
With their fresh original 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.
