Isobel Campbell released two albums under the name of The Gentle Waves (which included members of Belle and Sebastion) on Jeepster records in April 2000: The Green Fields of Foreverland. Swangsong For You was released in the winter of 2001 and received acclaim. This album won her new fans and reflected her growing confidence as a performer, writer and arranger. It was referred to as “a giant leap forward in songwriting” by the N.M.E. The Face magazine also described the record as “a beat happenin’ caffeine jolt, full of Hazelwood/Gainsbourg mini-drama and lovely melodies”. In Alastair Mabbott’s excellent 2001 feature/interview with Isobel, he sums up her work pretty nicely: Simplicity and honesty are the watchwords in Campbell’s world. The Green Fields of Foreverland is awash with naïve melodies and imagery that could have come straight from childrens’ books. Foreverland’s marriage of Campbell’s classical training and her love of French pop nevertheless resulted in some beguiling songs. She calls it her “baby album”. But far better was to come. Last year’s follow-up, SWANSONG FOR YOU, marked a leap forward in confidence, scope and maturity without any loss of her characteristic directness. Isobel’s music has also appeared in television and films and she has collaborated with eclectic artists such as Evie Sands, Bill Wells (with whom she released a jazz mini EP in 2002 inspired by the likes of Billie Holiday) , Teenage Fanclub, The Pastels, Current 93, Eugene Kelly and Mark Lanegan.

Amorino deftly continues where SWANSONG FOR YOU leaves off, with a style and beauty that is uncompromisingly and absolutely Isobel Campbell. As she summed up for Alastair Mabbott: “The thing that I’m most into is making the best records that I possibly can. That is what I’m completely like. It’s just the most important thing. It’s a challenge. To have a dream that’s in your head suddenly become something that’s on tape, that’s the best thing. And if people buy it, that’s even better. For me,” she concludes, “it’s a total learning experience. I’m not under any illusions, I’m just learning as I go along.”
