Biography

Glasgow’s Camera Obscura have had several line-up changes since founder members Tracyanne Campbell and Gavin Dunbar first began rehearsing together back in 1996.

They now exist as a five-piece:

Tracyanne Campbell (Lead Singer / Songwriter)

Gavin Dunbar (Bass)
Lee Thomson (Drums)
Kenny McKeeve (Guitar / Songwriter)
Carey Lander (Keyboards)


Speaking of their 2009 release My Maudlin Career, Tracyanne commented:

“Some people who have heard it say it’s intense and quite dark. I suppose it is in a way. We were even more open and brave when making it than we were with the last record. I’ve never been so brutal when its come to writing lyrics. I wouldn’t even call them lyrics. Just documentation of what was going on with me for a while. I truly believe it’s the best we’ve done so far.”
