Gentle Waves was the project of
Scottish cellist and singer Isobel Campbell, an original member of
Belle and Sebastian.
Green Fields of Foreverland (Jeepster, 1999), with
Weathershow, Dirty Snow for the Broken Ground and Rose I Love You ,
and Swansong for You (2000), with Falling From Grace,
contained brief dreamy folk-rock elegies.
Campbell's first solo album, Amorino (Instinct, 2002) sounded like an
orchestral version of Scotland's old "twee-pop", which at its best was more
neoclassical than pop (Poor Butterfly).
Campbell collaborated with Mark Lanegan on
the EP Ramblin' Man (V2, 2006) and the full-length
Ballad Of The Broken Seas (V2, 2006).
Her second solo album, Milk White Sheets (V2, 2006), embraced the
fashionable trend of psychedelic folk a` la Vashti Bunyan but, ultimately, she remains a product of the far less creative
school of folksingers a` la Shirley Collins and Sandy Denny.
Campbell's EP Time Is Just The Same (Snowstorm, 2009) collects music
recorded in 2004.
