Spearheaded by Larry Campanella, The LJC Project hails from New Jersey just outside of Philadelphia. This website is where you will find original recorded releases as well as any and all endeavors of The LJC Project.
Campanella has an extensive background in writing, recording, and performing as a guitarist for a few bands. He has a discography that includes a few releases from metal/hard rock band he cofounded called "Next Stop Earth" and one cd from Philly favorite, the band "STONE". Campanella cut his teeth trying to replicate the likes of Eddie Van Halen....would even cofound a Van Halen tribute band that did quite well. Over the years would come to appreciate so many fantastic guitarists...according to Campanella, "its so hard to pinpoint influences. But with that being said, Vai, Petrucci, LeTekro, and 70s pop and lite rock all play a role in my melodic sense of playing and writing".
The idea of The LJC Project is to be a collective, inviting guest musicians to handle various duties when necessary. Unfortunately, that didn't happen on the first 2 cd releases.....until this 3rd planned release (late 2020/ early 2021). For this undertaking LJC tapped Andy Farah on bass for most of the album. There is also work being done to add a drummer to the "mix" (if you will). Hopefully, when all of this craziness dies down, a live LJC show just might hit the scene......we shall see!
The LJC Project uses Ginelle Amplification and Spectraflex Cables exclusively.
