JC Stylles is the performing name of jazz guitarist Jason Campbell (he took the name to avoid confusion with Jason Campbell of the NFL[2]), an Australian based in New York City since 2005 (as well as from 1992 to the mid-1990s). He studied under John Scofield, Steve Erquiaga, Miroslav Vitous, Woody Shaw, Johnny Griffin, Pat Martino, Tal Farlow, Rodney Jones, John Abercombie, and Barry Harris, and others. He typically plays in the organ trio format, with such organists as Jimmy McGriff, Dr Lonnie Smith, Tony Monaco, Joey DeFrancesco, Pat Bianchi, Seleno Clarke, Jimmy “Preacher” Robbins, Melvin Davis, Nathan Lucas, Akiko Tsuruga, and others.

Some of the venues where he has performed include The Apollo Theater, Small's Jazz Club, SmokeJazz Club, The Lenox Lounge, The Bar next Door, Showmans, The American Legion Post, The Carnegie Club, Charlie O's, Swing 46, Perks, Minton's PlayHouse, Rue 57, Cachaca, The Essex House, Creole's, Fat Cat, Trumpets, The Martinique, and The Zinc Bar.

Jeff Simon of The Buffalo News compared him to a hotter Kenny Burrell and called him "a monster of a jazz guitar player."[3]
