Biography

Don Campbell of Jamaican roots started his musical career at a very early age. Don is not only gifted with such a ‘sweet’ singing voice, but has other talents as a rhythm guitarist, drummer, bassist and also experiments on the piano to produce and arrange tracks.

Don has a very charming personality and his musical abilities have given him privileges at an early age of working alongside some of the greatest artists such as Paul Young, Dennis Brown, ABC, John Holt, Maxi Priest and many others. Don has even supported international artists like SWV, Massive Attack, Lisa Stansfield, and Wet Wet Wet.

In 1993 Don collaborated with Trevor T of Juggling Records and came with the huge Reggae hit ‘See it in your eyes’. This held the number 1 position in almost every Reggae chart for 12 weeks. ‘Lovers Do’, his follow up single entered the then Echoes Chart at number 9.

Don’s first album titled ‘Don Campbell, The Album’ was released in May 1994 and is still selling internationally and can still be found amongst most Reggae Lovers Collections. 1994 saw Don at the British Reggae Industry Award where he picked up 4 Awards for ‘Best New Comer’, ‘Best Male Vocalist’, ‘Best Singer’ and ‘Best Songwriter’. The Echoes paper described Don as ‘The most exciting UK Reggae Vocalist to emerge’. In 1995 at the Black Music Awards, Don walked away with Awards for ‘Best Reggae Soloist’ and ‘Best Reggae Single’.

In 1996 Don collaborated with General Saint, landing a number 1 spot in South East Asia with the cover of 60’s singer Neil Sedaka’s song ‘Oh Carol’ which was internationally a huge success.
