As an Artist
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 Simon's 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. This record reflects his increasing love of acoustic music from both sides of the Atlantic and featured Suzy Starlite, attracting great reviews.
In May 2014 Simon married bass player, singer-songwriter and musician Suzy Starlite in Inveraray, Scotland and together have written over 40 new songs!
Together, they formed the Starlite-Campbell Band in 2015 and have just finished recording their debut album, 'Blueberry Pie' for release on 1st February, 2017.

As a guitar player, producer and engineer
Simon has been a full time musician for 40 years. He is hugely experienced in production and recording, specialising in vintage techniques with everyone playing together in one room.
He has played session guitar on many albums and live shows and it was at these sessions (mainly in the 70's) that he learnt the old school engineering and production techniques that that keeps him very much in demand.
Always keen to keep up to date with the technical aspects of sound recording he has been a member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) since 1988.
In 2014 Suzy and Simon set up the independent record label Supertone Records to release their own material with a vision to sign like minded artists in the future; a vision that has now come to fruition.

In November of that year, they set up the the Supertone Records studio, a world class residential recording facility in the mountains close to Valencia centered around a Trident 40 channel analog console.
