When you go to see award-winners Starlite Campbell Band in concert the air is full of anticipation and excitement as no two gigs are the same!
Husband and wife Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell are passionate about the music as well as each other, caring deeply about creating beautifully recorded music and giving audiences a great time at their live concerts.
The couple have been on a roller-coaster musical adventure following the worldwide success of their first two albums ‘Blueberry Pie’ and ‘The Language of Curiosity’.
Their third album ‘Starlite Campbell Band Live!’ is set for release on July 22nd, 2022. When the wonderful
Josh Phillips, Hammond organ player with legendary band ‘Procol Harum’ joined the band on their 2019 UK tour, there was no question that the iconic song ‘A Whiter Shade of Pale’ had to be included in the setlist!
To celebrate the release of their new live album, Starlite Campbell Band are releasing ‘A Whiter Shade of Pale - Live’ as a single on Friday, June 24th. The song really captures the spirit of their live performance, sharing such a special moment for the band with the audience.
The music video receives its world premiere with American Blues Scene and features live footage of the Starlite Campbell Band filmed at The Met, Bury, UK plus a montage of memories from their worldwide travelling escapades from London to Lisbon, the island of Vis in Croatia to their hometown of Samora Correia in Portugal.
Starlite and Campbell work with fabulous world-class session musicians and their new live album also features Steve Gibson on drums, and Jonny Henderson (Matt Schofield, Kirk Fletcher) and Christian Madden (the Liam Gallagher band) on Hammond organ and Wurlitzer electric piano.
The single is featured on the ‘Starlite Campbell Band Live!’ and is available to buy on limited edition CD and digital, direct from the band’s online shop with worldwide shipping.

THE LANGUAGE OF CURIOSITY
The Starlite Campbell Band released their highly anticipated new album ‘The Language of Curiosity’ on November 5, 2021.
‘'The Language of Curiosity’ looks at the world we live in today from different points of view; like different sides of the Rubik's cube and continues to push musical boundaries and creatively melt & fuse genres.
Inspired by the production techniques of 'the late '60s to early '70s British rock and blues, think Peter Green, Faces, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin but not like those really... more like Starlite-Campbell!.
For their second album Starlite and Campbell focussed on writing authentic, fun, thoughtful, sometimes brutal words in service of the story and the song which informed the feel and style of music; from full-on rock ’n’ roll, tribal drums, thunderous bass, badass filthy dirty guitar riffs, drunken echoes of slide and lap steel, melting melodies, crazy tornadoes of sound, sirens and laughter to the nakedness of silence and intimate breathing, washed by waves of delicious double vocal harmonies.”
"A very British sound with a fusion of fearless, original '70s British rock and British blues marinated with subtle undertones of psychedelia, prog and folk, ignited by the passionate heat of scorching hot chilli sauce! "
Thank you for directly supporting handmade, independently produced music - you really do make a difference!

"Dare we say, their debut release on the Supertone label, Blueberry Pie, will be taking the Isles, nay, the world, by storm.” | JD Nash - American Blues Scene. USA
"This debut has the songwriting nous and musicianship to prick up your ears." | Classic Rock Magazine
"This is one fine piece of British Blues from the opening ‘Walkin’ Out The Door’ to the last with ‘Thrill You’. It looks as though 2017 is already starting with a greater sense of musical joi de vivre than 2016 and this album definitely adds to that. A real slice of the right attitude and great playing.” | Andy Snipper, Music News, UK
Unquestionably Blueberry Pie is a stunning debut." | Morgan Hogarth: Rock 'n Reel Magazine - April 2017
