When Owen Campbell's bluesy vocals cut loose, his smoky delivery serves up images of a veteran blues guitarist and singer, with a touch of The Band's Robbie Robertson mixed in. Campbell defies easy categorization. He's a slide guitarist, a songwriter, banjo player, blues singer, busker, and more.
While he's performed and toured internationally for more than 7 years, his 2012 run on Australia's Got Talent' helped capture the hearts of a wider audience. Today, Campbell brings a gumbo-like repertoire to performances on his U.S. tour. His smoldering guitar work runs from bluesy riffs to soulful finger-picking to lap steel guitar solos using a shot glass slide.
