Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Evocative/eclectic, somewhat ethereal, jazzy/folky alternative pop
Most recent release, The Sweetest Noise (2002)
Like her more jazzy work with Jane Siberry
Rebecca Campbell has a strong and lovely voice, which can range from hushed to swinging to torchy. All these appear in this work. The music is somewhat jazzy with folky touches, but it's mostly unusual pop. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
Tug is the only one we've heard
1999—self-released—CD RCJH 01
See Rebecca Campbell's site for info
Recommended for fans of abstract, jazzy pop songs

Justin Haynes—electric guitar, acoustic guitar, piano, prepared piano, string arrangement, drum machine, loops, organ, electric bass, banjo, rhodes, lap steel
David Travers-Smith and Justin Haynes
It's an odd collection—very abstract and more like her work with Jane Siberry (though not as mainstream jazzy) than her previous more folky work with Three Sheets To The Wind or her more jazzy work Fat Man Waving. It takes a while to come into hazy focus, but is worth exploring. (Neile)
