Lennon/McCartney still impress me.

"His songs are well constructed ..." - Charles Harrelson, EvOR Entertainment
"A songsmith with some blues in his blood ..." - Donny Harvey, MuzikReviews.com

Ron Campbell played his first gig at 14. More than 40 years later, he's still playing, writing and recording.
Bust Out! is Ron's fourth independent CD release. He has also written songs for theatre productions, and his music has been used in independent film. He was chosen as a Songwriter Delegate to the BC Festival of the Arts. Ron considers his greatest strength to be his carefully polished lyrics.
Ron gigs steadily with several different bands in his hometown, Powell River, BC, and is a guitar instructor at the Powell River Academy of Music.
