Biography

Active: 1920s-1930s
Country Of origin: United States of America

Nothing is known about the life of blues guitarist and singer Gene Campbell beyond his surviving 78s and the dates and matrix numbers of his recording sessions. Given his stylistic leanings (he has a vocal approach somewhat similar to Texas Alexander), Campbell is usually listed as a Texan, but that remains conjecture. He did do his first recording session in Dallas, tracking two songs for Brunswick Records in 1929. Ten more songs for Brunswick were cut in Chicago in May 1930, followed by four more back in Dallas later that year in November. Campbell's last known session resulted in eight tracks recorded on January 22 and 23, 1931, in Chicago, again for Brunswick Records, and that's where the trail ends, with Campbell vanishing into thin air. ~ Steve Leggett~ Rovi
