Starlite Campbell Band - Blueberry Pie album review

The best Blues you can get this month

Cover art for Starlite Campbell Band - Blueberry Pie album

Suzy Starlite (bass/vocals) and Simon Campbell (guitar/vocals) cite the mid-to-late-60s as their touchstone; God knows it’s an over-referenced period, but this debut has the songwriting nous and musicianship to prick up your ears. Opener Walkin’ Out The Door is performed with slow-burn feel, while the title track is a touching display of fingerstyle and close harmonies.
