About Neil Campbell:

'The best guitar playing I have heard for a long long time’ – Victor Wooten, bass player

‘an outstanding guitarist whose originality of thought makes him far more than just another gifted purveyor of finger acrobatics’ -Classical Guitar Magazine

‘a man whose fingers have the ability to harness any imaginable sound in any given style’ – Sean Bradbury, Getintothis

The music of Liverpool classical guitarist and composer Neil Campbell draws on elements of contemporary classical, progressive rock, jazz and other musical styles. His output includes pieces for solo guitar, guitar and cello, songs, instrumental pieces and choral music.

He has performed and recorded critically acclaimed albums with The Neil Campbell Collective, Bulbs, The Perri and Neil Quartet (with vocalist Perri Alleyne-Hughes) and others. He has also collaborated on live projects and recordings with Jon Anderson (Yes), Sense of Sound Singers, DJ Yousef, Anne Taft (Ghost Stories), Carlo Bowry (Wizards of Twiddly) and composer Gordon Ross. Over the last fifteen years he has performed support slots for artists as diverse as Thea Gilmore, Jan Akkerman (Focus), Vini Reilly (Durutti Column), bassist Victor Wooten, folk guitar legend Davey Graham and saxophonist Courtney Pine.

In 2009 he premiered his composition Frankenstein at St George’s Hall Concert Room. This was a 60 minute long piece for rock band, choir (Sense of Sound Singers) and multimedia visual projections based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel. This performance was later reprised at BBC Radio Merseyside in a live recorded broadcast featuring actor Gary Mavers as narrator in May 2010.

He has produced three CDs of solo guitar music Through the Looking Glass (2003), Night Sketches (2004) and Tabula Rasa Suite (2014) along with a book of his compositions for solo classical guitar. Neil’s solo performances are the stuff of legend and often involve him using loops and other technology to expand the sound and scope of what one performer can do with the classical guitar. As a soloist he has performed in the UK and Europe, has been a regular performer at the International Guitar Festival of Great Britain and in October 2013 took part in the legendary Irish Sea Sessions at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and at Queen Elizabeth Hall, London.

Recent projects have included the recording of two new solo CDs of original music Tabula Rasa Suite (2014) and eMErgence (2015), recording and performance of music by contemporary classical composers Philip Glass and Steve Reich, and (with The Perri and Neil Quartet) development of a new live interpretation of Joni Mitchell’s seminal 1971 Blue album, The Blue Project.
