She appears to currently be in a band called The Special Interest Group

Comparisons:

Like her more jazzy work with Jane Siberry

Covers/own material:

Own, co-written

General comments:

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)

Comments:

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)
