Considered one of the great innovators in Sacred Steel music, Charles “Chuck” Campbell sets himself apart by being one of the most humble and helpful leaders in urging and encouraging young people everywhere to cultivate their own gifts and talent in music. This should come as no surprise, as he himself was excited to learn about playing the steel guitar at the age of 5 at his church’s national meeting. By age 11, he soon discovered that he had a rare gift and surrounded himself with music greats in his church and in the industry by studying their methods and styles. He understood early to be great he had to hone his skills with discipline and commitment. By doing so, he was destined to develop his own personal style and make an impact for generations to come.
Sacred Steel is a genre of African-American gospel music that has played a vital role in the history of the black church. Most notably in The House of God church community, where Charles “Chuck” Campbell gained his spiritual roots. For decades, Charles and his brothers have toured the world bringing this soul-stirring music to every language, culture, religion, age and background. Just a few of their venues include the Roman Catholic Church, the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Symphony Space and Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM).
