VIBES is written by full-time artists, husband and wife Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell who are passionate about art as well as each other.

Inspired by all the ‘stuff’ that stimulates the five senses and your imagination, VIBES is a collection of Suzy and Simon’s individual musings about life, culture, music and current affairs in a thoughtful and (hopefully) amusing way.

The point of doing this is to have a closer relationship with readers and to speak freely, without any algorithms, intermediaries or gatekeepers.

It’s like an intimate dinner party with you, Suzy and Simon - who knows what you’ll talk about.

They also release a weekly music-inspired podcast about songs and the people who make them.

Starlite & Campbell

Equally at home in the recording studio or on festival stages around the world, Suzy and Simon are curious souls, constantly asking questions and exploring new sounds, ideas and thoughts.

Travelling poets, detectives and observers, voracious readers and lovers of inspirational situations and spontaneous happenings with authentic people, they write stories in song where the lyric has meaning. The aim? To document, inform and arouse curiosity, served on a bed of musical emotion.

Suzy and Simon live near Lisbon, Portugal with their two Labradors, Bobby and Hummock. They fly in the face of disposable music, writing, recording, engineering, playing and producing all their work. All their music is released on their independent label Supertone Records.

Embracing the Portuguese culture, they are learning European Portuguese and love hanging out at wine-tasting events, art galleries, festivals, music concerts and local bars where they are very much a part of the local community.

Their next creative multimedia project is Starlite.One - exploring new musical ideas and thoughts - where music binds conceptual, applied and visual art; the expression of which is created both physically and digitally.

The latest album from Starlite & Campbell is called Starlite.One which reflects the musical direction informed by the multimedia project and was released on September 1, 2023 on 180g milky clear vinyl, Compact Disc and digitally though Bandcamp. It is available to order now.
