About Isobel Campbell

A founding member of Belle & Sebastian, Isobel Campbell delivered her first lead vocal, "Is It Wicked Not to Care?," on the group's 1998 album The Boy with the Arab Strap, and a year later she released her first solo project, the Gentle Waves' The Green Fields of Foreverland.... Swansong for You followed a year later, but Campbell remained a full-time member of Belle & Sebastian through mid-2002, co-writing the Top 20 U.K. hit "Legal Man" before exiting. After Amorino (2003), Campbell kept a low profile until Ballad of the Broken Seas (2006) and Sunday at Devil Dirt (2008), both recorded with former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan. The duo's third collaboration, Hawk, followed in 2010. ~ Jason Ankeny
