After 3 best-selling studio albums, 2 EP’s and over 12 years of national and international touring, Owen Campbell has cemented himself as one of Australia’s premier blues/rock exports. He has performed in many corners of the world from the USA, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Spain, Holland, Japan, Hong Kong, India and even performed at the highest blues festival in the world, The Himalayan Blues Festival in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Every album upon release has hit the Top 10 on iTunes Blues Charts in over 10 countries. One of which “Sunshine Road” reached Number 1 on the overall charts (Australia), knocking Adele of the top spot in 2014.
Owen brings a gumbo-like repertoire to performances all over the world. His smouldering guitar work runs from bluesy riffs and soulful finger-picking to lap steel guitar solos using a shot glass slide. His gritty caramel vocals makes this blues maven a global favourite.

Authentic rock, inspired guitar solos, energetic jams and heartfelt melodies – mix them together and you get MINOR CABINET. The young German band from Krefeld near Düsseldorf, signed to Black Penny Records in 2014 just before their debut release ‘black ink on white sheets’ hit the shelves.
This first release was so well received in the German press that the band had to hold two release concerts in their home town – such was the demand!
The band has since changed its line up as well as its musical direction and is about to release a new album – its first in 5 years in 2020.
