Introducing: Loz Campbell

Loz Campbell recently released her latest single ‘What Are You Doing It For?’, and she joined us for a quickfire Q&A session. Connect with Loz below, and make sure to follow her on social media for regular updates on forthcoming live dates.

What are the origins of the band, how long have you been playing together?

The band’s lineup has changed however the band has been going since 2016.

How did you feel performing your first gig? And how was it?!

I was nervous as hell but I loved it at the same time if that makes sense.

What should people expect when they check the band out? How would you describe yourself?

Old school rock and roll with a new wave of classic rock sound.

The new music scene is bursting at the seams with fresh talent, in what ways do you feel that a band has to stand out from the others trying to build a name?

I believe that you have to write good songs and work super hard (gigging/social media)!

What are you working on at the minute that people can check out?

We are currently pushing our latest single “What Are You Doing It For?” and we have a number of live dates planned for this Autumn.

What band out there at the minute do you feel that you would be best suited to open for?

Halestorm

Who do you feel is the next band to break out?

Saint Agnes

What are your first musical memories? And what was the lightbulb moment that made you go “I want to do that”?

I saw The Pretty Reckless live when I was around 12 years old and I shouldn’t have been there as I was underaged but thank God I was because I’ll never forget how that kick drum felt through my chest and it is still the reason I love live gigs because they’re LOUD!

Last year we had the tragic passing of Eddie Van Halen, do you have a particular favourite Van Halen track?

I mean who doesn’t! It has to be “Hot For Teacher”.

AC/DC – Brian or Bon? Or both?!

Bon, sorry Brian.

What was the last gig that you attended as a fan?

Stereophonics – Nottingham

What current issue are you particularly passionate about?

I try and keep my opinions to myself people have enough bad to worry about at the moment.

There is great debate at the minute about whether or not musicians should use their platform to talk about political issues, some for and some against. Music has always been a form of protest, surely an artist has just as much right as the next person to offer an opinion? Or should they “just stick to the music”?

I try and stick to the music, purely because it is a place to escape all of the problems but yes, of course, people can offer their opinions but I try not to.

The album that you have in your album collection/Spotify playlist that would surprise most people?

Madness haha! Baggy Trousers is a favourite.

Who would you class as an underrated songwriter?

Joanna Connor.

As much as 2020 was a year to forget, there was some incredible music released: what would you say is your favorite album of 2020?

The Pretty Reckless – Death By Rock N Roll

How active are you on social media and where can people connect with you?

I’m quite active, you kind of have to be ha! People can connect mainly via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and our website.
