Take influences from John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, and Lightning Hopkins, add a blast of Clutch, Soundgarden, and Rage against the Machine, and what have you got? Eli Cook and a sound that blasts Blues/Rock into the stratosphere! His rich baritone voice, searing guitar, and a style packed with raw honesty have attracted nationwide notice, critical acclaim for his first recordings, and the strong consensus that he could be the greatest blues singer of a new generation. The Campbell Brothers are gospel at its finest. From the Hollywood Bowl to the Brooklyn Academy of Music, from the Pentecostal sanctuary to the public eye, the group rocks with rich and compelling material from the African-American Holiness-Pentecostal repertoire given a new twist. The group rocks with the growling, wailing, shouting, singing and swinging voice of the steel guitar, played as you have never heard it before.
