"A fine album with excellent music. A true successor to the debut album. Hopefully, we won't have to wait that long for number three again." | Eric Campfens - Barn Owl Blues
The Starlite Campbell Band is a blues band from Great Britain, which saw the light in early 2016. Singer, bassist and songwriter Suzy Starlite started the band Starlite in 2012, where Simon Campbell was the guitarist. Both musicians have extensive experience in various bands and as a solo artist. Simon won a British Blues Award in 2011 as best singer. Somewhere, the spark flew for both and in 2014 they married. They started the Starlite Campbell Band in January 2016 and released their first album “Blueberry Pie”, which was well received internationally.
It took five years and now the successor has appeared, entitled “The Language Of Curiosity”. The heart of the band is still formed by Suzy Starlite (vocals, bass, keys) and Simon Campbell (vocals, guitars, synthesizer). The rest of the band is Steve Gibson (drums, percussion, Jonny Henderson (Hammond B3, keys), Gabriele Del Vecchio (keys) and Maria Saalfeld (castanets). The album contains ten songs written by Suzy and Simon. The band ranges from quiet blues songs to up-tempo rockers.A song like "Bad Time" evokes memories of the British blues of the sixties, while "Said So" is a pure rock song with correspondingly ripping guitar work. Other songs that have a deserve special mention are the blues “Lay It Out On Me” and the ballad “Take Time To Grow Old”. A fine album with excellent music. A true successor to the debut album. Hopefully, we won't have to wait that long for number three again.
