Johnny Campbell emerged onto the UK folk scene writing self-penned material and delving deep into Northern English folk song and story.
The album From Hull and Halifax and Hell (2020) took him to The Faroe Islands where he recorded a live album on the island of Nolsoy. This album earned him album of the week with Blues and Roots radio.
Nobody else seems to be doing what Campbell is doing right now, and his passion and determination deserve recognition. - Jon Wilks
Joe Solo is an award-winning musician, writer, poet, activist, broadcaster and washing machine engineer from Scarborough. His musical odyssey began in 1987 fronting a bash-em-out band at school, and has seen him play nine countries either as lynchpin of pop-punk upstarts Lithium Joe or hammering out his unique brand of Folk, Punk and Blues in his own right.
In October 2016 Joe was awarded the Outstanding Songwriting prize at Yorkshire Gig Guide Grassroots Music Awards for his work on the album Never Be Defeated telling the stories of the men and women of Hatfield during the 1984-85 Miner's Strike.
