Isobel Campbell

Her last release was a country album and she formally was a member of the Scottish band Belle and Sebastian. The woman has shown that she has some range! Isobel Campbell sheds light on the versatility of the cello as an instrument. Apparently you can stick it into any sort of genre of music no problem at all. "Milk White Sheets" is Campbell's interpretation of English and Scottish traditional folk music. Her voice is perfectly suited for this type of music as its soft nature makes her sound like a wee fairy is singing the songs. There are also some covers (notably of Billie Holiday) and originals on the album. Former member of Smashing Pumkins, James Iha, makes a guest appearance.
