James Campbell Bowar – even if his name doesn’t automatically ring a bell, you may recognize his face from blockbuster movies such as Sweeney Todd, The Twilight Saga – Eclipse & Breaking Dawn 1 & 2, and numerous other big and small screen appearances. If you live outside the U.K., you probably have not seen him as the front man and guitarist for his band Counterfeit.
We first saw James (or Jamie as he likes to be called) and his brother Sam Bowar perform an acoustic set during the “Zippo Sessions” at Carolina Rebellion 2018. Our next encounter was after we saw them plugged in, with everything turned up to 11, at Northern Invasion (Somerset, WI). That is where we filmed the following interview with the brothers Bowar. https://www.tattoo.com/blog/exclusive-interview-counterfeit-northern-invasion-18/
