Starlite Campbell Band ‘Blueberry Pie’ (2017) Review
‘Blueberry Pie’ is a tasty collection of all-original tracks by UK newcomers Starlite Campbell Band. Together husband and wife team Simon Campbell (guitar & vocals) and Suzy Starlite (bass & vocals) penned the tracks and they anchor the band. Simon is a British Blues Awards nominee and Suzy has performed with Megiddo. Keyboardist Johnny Henderson’s experience includes performing with Robben Ford, Matt Schofield & Otis Rush. Drummer Steve Gibson has backed Van Morrison, Chris Farlowe, Larry Garner & Jack Bruce. Danny Boy Sanchez plays harmonica and rounds out the band. This 2017 release propels the talents of these well-seasoned musicians.
‘Blueberry Pie’ is dominated by strong guitar & keyboard runs and melodic vocals. The incredible sound, reminiscent of the 1960s Blues scene, is complemented with driving bass and drum lines. The record includes just the right mix of ballads and shakers to keep you moving. This is a must to add to any record collection. You’ll play the tracks over and over to soak in the Starlite Campbell Band interpretation of the Blues!
