Ron Campbell - rich, famous, teen idol? Nope, just a working musician from the little town of Powell River, Canada. Every weekend finds me where I've been for the last 45 years - on stage. Whether it's playing an acoustic show at a coffeehouse, or rockin' out with my band the bLUES bUSTERS, this is what I do - it's who I am.
For more than 40 years, I've been making music and entertaining audiences. I've toured professionally all over BC in various bands and as a solo artist (and have been privileged to play with many of Canada's finest musicians); and I've released 4 CDs.
My musical taste runs to the "rootsy" styles: classic rock, country, jazz and older pop. I especially love all forms of blues. As a songwriter, I value strong melodies and tight, well-structured lyrics.

Not so long ago and not so far away, near the mountains in a place the Canadians call Alberta, a young man fell in love with the blues. Bottleneck slide blues, to be precise, maybe the most soulful and haunting music to ever come out of life in the Deep South.
Slide is all about the notes between the notes, the ones just this or that side of the frets that hold so many kinds of music together. It's an ancient thing, going back thousands of years and it's a familiar thing, something we hear in the cello, the violin, the oud and the voice of a great singer.

Daddy Long Legs, Waterloo Ontario's gritty electrified blues band, are happy to release their fourth CD, “Liars, Cheats and Scoundrels”, on Busted Flat Records.
For Daddy Long Legs, playing the blues has nothing to do with nostalgia, or trying to recreate their blues record collections. Rather, it’s about mashing together all the brawn of riff-based garage rock, the soul of 60’s era rhythm and blues, and all the jump and shuffle of the west coast and Chicago sounds to create new blues music that is about the here-and-now. As a result, Daddy Long Legs have become an enigma of the music scene, appealing to an eclectic bunch of blues purist, rock-a-billies, and alt-rockers alike.

Fathead may be the best blues and roots band to come out of Canada since Ronnie Hawkins hired the future-Band to become his backup group, The Hawks, in the mid-1950s. An ultra-tight ensemble, Fathead brings together the most respected musicians in the United States' northern neighbor to create an energetic blend of funk, soul and rockin' blues. "Real Blues" referred to the group's harp and guitar-dominated sound as "one of those rare, much sought after, but seldom achieved, chemical/spiritual reactions that happens when all the right ingredients come together: talent, personality, humour, united vision and a little bit of "hoodoo/voodoo".
"The Toronto Star" praised Fathead when it commented, "If the blues were a sports league, Fathead would be the equivalent of an all-star team".

Not many blues artists can call themselves “the Doctor of the Blues” without a whole stretcher-full of the idiom’s winking big talk. But Marshall Lawrence can, and with only the slightest bit of irony. The award-nominated Canadian bluesman actually holds a doctorate in psychology, and he knows how to use it—just as he knows how to use his slashing guitar, stinging, lightning-fast slide, and pleading, mournful moan: Marshall’s prescription for a maximum blues remedy.
“Psychology is about talking about the good times and the bad times, about dealing with it and getting it out there,” says Marshall, who recently retired after 10 years of counseling troubled teenagers to devote himself full time to playing the blues. “And that’s also what the blues are about—singing about the good and the bad. So there’s always been a parallel there for me.”

Local guitar ace Russell Marsland has been a powerful presence on the Vancouver music scene for more than 30 years.

The art in mainstream, modern music is suffering; dying. It gasps for the crisp air of originality as the noxious clouds of imitation, insincerity and fabrication threaten to stifle it existence. Quite simply, creating original, earnest music is becoming extinct.
Vancouver area-based quartet The British Columbians are a breath of that fresh air. While their music is an incomparably unique union of very diverse backgrounds that results in a mixture of old school blues-influenced stompy rock 'n' roll songs (heavy emphasis on the roll), with songs that are haunted, wooden and pastoral, one must understand how their outlook and passion fuels this creativity and originality. It is their grassroots approach to making music for music's sake that is seeing them blossom as one of Canada's few truly authentic acts.

Singer-songwriters are dime a dozen - and that accounts for inflation. They come. They go. Many of them have the requisite ‘voice’ and necessary perspective while some possess the talent required to attract your attention. Yet few rise above the ether.
Suzie Vinnick is different. Like so many others, she doesn’t perform because she wants to. She performs because she’s driven to. And, as anyone who’s followed her career knows – she never merely attracts your attention. She captures it – and holds it prisoner.
Possessed of a distinctively alluring voice – once described as being “spun of gold “ – she has the power and grace to project it through finely-crafted (and increasingly self-penned) songs that make you sit up and wish you knew her better. Her lust for constructive collaboration and her instrumental dexterity has rendered her irreplaceable to countless musicians, providing her with musical hearth and home in any configuration in which she chooses to play.
