Since strapping on his first guitar at the age of 16, Simon has spent his life immersed in music, a passion which has given him a wealth of experience across decades, countries and genres.
He has always written his own material and following bands 'Whitefire' and 'Roadrunner', signed a major record deal with Polydor Germany in 1989 with his band 'Little Brother'.
2011 saw the release of Simon's first solo album, ThirtySix. The perfect showcase for his versatility and profound musical understanding, ThirtySix harnesses a wide variety of guitar styles while being grounded in a deep-seated love of Rock and Blues.
On the strength of the record, he was nominated for a prestigious British Blues Award.
Simon moved to Valencia, Spain in 2013 to complete work on his next album, The Knife, which was released on October 31st, 2014, reflecting his increasing love of acoustic music from both sides of the Atlantic. The album attracted great reviews with national radio play on Spain’s Radio 3 RNE and featured Suzy Starlite on lead and backing vocals.
In May 2014 Simon married bass player, singer-songwriter and musician Suzy Starlite on the shores of Loch Fyne, Inveraray in Scotland and together have written over 40 new songs!
Together, they formed the Starlite-Campbell Band in 2016, releasing their debut album, 'Blueberry Pie' in February 2017 to massive critical acclaim. It was nominated for Best Album in the 2017 European Blues Awards.
Along with Suzy, Simon co-wrote a healthy catalogue of songs which could fill up the next three albums and went on to record their debut album, 'Blueberry Pie' in November 2016. It was released on 1st February, 2017 to staggering critical acclaim and was nominated for Best Album in the 2017 European Blues Awards.
2020 sees Suzy and Simon recording their new album 'The Language of Curiosity' at the band's semi mobile studio in Portugal and touring internationally with a series of European and UK dates in autumn 2021.
