At the tender age of 7, Anthony Campo picked up an old battered acoustic Guitar, rescued from the garage by his parents whilst moving to a new house in Cambridgeshire where he currently lives. As the internet flourished, Anthony spent countless hours watching videos of famous guitarists, such as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Jimi Hendrix amongst others who had a huge influence on him.
At the age of 9, he took to having lessons with famed local guitarist Lenny Davidson from The Dave Clark Five, and this led to Anthony attending The Rhythm Studio in London, taking lessons and performing in bands at various venues and festivals. This gave Anthony confidence and vital experience at a very early age, and at 11 he won a UK wide competition for his Guitar skills.
After 5 years attending the Rhythm Studio, he began to work with some top producers and gained production experience working on his own material and other artists. Notably, his first studio work came about with Julian Chown at Joules Productions in Chelsea. Anthony also worked alongside Stu Epps, a producer noted for his work with Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Chris Rea, and Oasis.
Having completed his studies at Access to Music in London, Anthony is now currently working with Stephen Loveday, a producer and composer noted for his TV and film work. Credits include Red Dwarf, Friends, The Lion King and many TV commercials. They are currently working on a Blues-Rock EP with lyricist Gontani Tatsya (Japan).
At the age of 19, Anthony is now aiming to build up a solo career as a singer-guitarist and is starting to release his music out into the world.
