“...rich harmonic textures come across like Cirque du Soleil playing the Grand Ole Opry with some heady downtown jazz landscapes tossed into the mix...” -GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE

Billboard Magazine has called Jim Campilongo “an American treasure” while The New Yorker raved that “few guitarists capture the nuances as well as Campilongo does.” Those accolades have deservedly been earned over the course of a career that now sees Campilongo celebrating the release of his tenth album of original material, Dream Dictionary (released Jan, 2014).
The prolific Bammiewinner Campilongo has been a formidable presence as a guest on dozens of recordings by other artists as well, including a contribution to Cake’s millionselling Prolonging the Magic to (most recently) providing lead guitar for Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson and the Little Willies, Campilongo’s band with Norah Jones. He's performed or recorded alongside JJ Cale, Nels Cline, Pete Townsend, Bright Eyes, Burning Spear, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings and Peter Rowan to name a few.
