Born in Adelaide, South Australia, the son of rock star Jimmy Barnes; David Campbell was performing at the Sydney Theatre Company and Sydney Opera House by the age of 20. He followed this by travelling to New York to perform his own cabaret show, which Time Out described as "creating the biggest buzz since Barbra Streisand". After several years performing in New York, Campbell came back to Australia to take the leading role of Johnny O'Keefe in 'Shout', which made him a household name in his home country, and established him as a leading light of Australian musical theatre. Since then, he has performed in shows including 'Les Miserables', 'Sunset Boulevard', 'Carousel' and 'Pirates of Penzance' - in addition to releasing four bestselling albums through Sony Australia (The Swing Sessions (2006), The Swing Sessions 2 (2007), Good Lovin' (2008), and On Broadway (2010).
