Don Campbell of Jamaican roots started his musical career at a very early age. Don is not only gifted with such a ?sweet' singing voice, but has other talents as a rhythm guitarist, drummer, bassist and also experiments on the piano to produce and arrange tracks. Don has a very charming personality and his musical abilities have given him privileges at an early age of working alongside some of the greatest artists such as Paul Young, Dennis Brown, ABC, John Holt, Maxi Priest and many others.

The final word from Don is ?Even better things yet to come'.
