Campbell brings a gumbo-like repertoire to performances. His smoldering guitar work runs from bluesy riffs to soulful finger-picking to lap steel guitar solos using a shot glass slide.
His eclectic mix of rock-influenced songwriting results from years of busking – performing on the streets of cities across Australia and Europe.
‘In The Shadow Of The Greats’ is a collection of acoustic cover songs (and 2 originals, previously unreleased) that have been staple ingredients of my live shows for many years.
Featuring songs by Springsteen, Waits, Van Morrison and The Beatles, they all stand my mind as the musical immortals of a golden era, casting the mold into which the next 50 years of music has fallen.
Owen’s only Melbourne show of the tour!
