Isobell Campbell is a Scottish singer-songwriter and classically trained cellist, who records lush chamber pop and folk under her given name, under the moniker The Gentle Waves, and with longstanding duet partner Mark Lanegan. Campbell is also a former (1996-2002) founding member of the Twee Pop Collective Belle & Sebastian. Isobel played Cello with Belle and Sebastian and sang backing vocals. She also took lead vocals on a few songs from the band, and co-wrote their top-20 U.K. single Legal Man. The Gentle Waves released The Green Fields of Foreverland on Jeepster Records in 1999 and Swansong For You was released a year later. In 2002, she collaborated with Scottish Jazz Musician Bill Wells on a collection of Billie Holiday songs, released by Creeping Bent. In 2003, Campbell released Amorino her first solo album under her own name and also Milkwhite Sheets in 2006. That same year, Campbell released a collaborative album Ballad of the Broken Seas - a mixture of folk and more rock-orientated music, with former Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age singer Mark Lanegan. The album garnered very good reviews and received a nomination in the 2006 Mercury Awards. The two again collaborated on 2008's Sunday at Devil Dirt and on her latest album Hawk in 2010.moreless
