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, on iTunes, Amazon and fine record stores everywhere on January 21, 2014.
The prolific Bammie-winner Campilongo has been a formidable presence as a guest on dozens of recordings by other artists as well, including a contribution to Cake’s million-selling 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.
Campilongo has also made repeat appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, Jools Holland and Abbey Road Sessions (both BBC) and has been interviewed on many major radio shows.
Additionally, Campilongo is a published guitar teacher and contributing editor to Guitar Player Magazine. His virtuosity and originality has inspired a generation of guitar players and his songwriting, which draws from blues, country, jazz and rock, boasts a sensitivity and wit that has also earned him a broad fan base most instrumental guitarist never enjoy.
In 2012 Fender Guitars bestowed Jim the honor of the Campilongo Signature Telecaster, a high quality instrument made by Fender’s elite Custom Shop.
