SongVault Artist Profile
Arkansas, United States
Smooth Jazz / Instrumental Rock
My name is Larry R Campbell, guitarist & songwriter, originally from Little Rock AR, started my music career at age 4 & began playing professionally at age 15 & by age 30, had played in 10 working bands & had traveled Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Louisiana, Kansas, & New Mexico, playing everything from top 40, pop, disco, R&B, Funk, Jazz, hard rock & original tunes & “acoustic guitar” as a solo artist in country clubs & private parties.
Though I have many musical influences, Larry Carlton, George Benson, Eric Johnson, Frank Gambale, Allan Holdsworth, Steve Lukather, Phil Keaggy, & Steve Morse, my focus & passion is not on imitating others, but rather, creating a totally "new sound" by utilizing the fundamentals of music theory, modal scales & progressions, as my point of reference. I believe this gives me a universal perspective to melody!
