In a stunning result for independent artists, European & British award nominees the Starlite Campbell Band's highly acclaimed new album 'The Language of Curiosity' was voted #7 by Music News UK in their Top 28 albums of 2021.
Named alongside some heavy international hitters including Sam Fender, Adele, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, husband and wife Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell said "We are astounded, delighted and slightly bewildered. We found out that the video for our single 'Take Time To Grow Old' from 'The Language of Curiosity' had gone viral with over 44,000 views in just a few days when we were in the Czech Republic at the end of an epic six week UK & European tour and as full-time musicians, it means the world to us that our music is connecting and being heard!"
Released on independent label Supertone Records, their combined songwriting skills along with a uniquely British rock & blues sound, make Starlite and Campbell, who fell in love on stage and married following a whirlwind musical romance, one hot ticket!
There aren't many artists who write, play, record, engineer, and produce their own music themselves but that is exactly what this passionate couple does. As lovers of vinyl and all things analog, producer Simon Campbell’s production and recording techniques have an ethos and quality learned first-hand working in recording studios in the early ’70s; it's not retro - it's always been this way!
‘The Language of Curiosity’ is released on Supertone Records and is available to buy on CD,180g vinyl and digital, direct from the Starlite Campbell Band website, Amazon, iTunes and in all major outlets or from your local record shop with European distribution by Continental Records.
