She: Isobel Campbell, former cellist, keyboard player and vocalist for Glaswegian indie-pop smiths Belle & Sebastian; co-writer and lead vocal for that same bands only ever UK top 20 and Australian alternative radio hit, Legal Man, and owner of four critically acclaimed solo albums (the first two released under the non-de-plume The Gentle Waves).
He: Mark Lanegan, the gravel voiced former lead singer for the Screaming Trees, part time front man with Queens of the Stone Age & Soulsavers, partner with Greg Dulli in The Twilight Singers and owner of a string of booze soaked solo albums including the 1994 debut Whiskey for the Holy Ghost and the brilliant covers album I'll Take Care of You.
She & He: Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan, a true renaissance duo channelling the dusty desert sounds of Texas and LA and the red dust encrusted highways of Las Vegas via three stunning collaborative albums including the Mercury Prize nominated debut Ballad of the Broken Seas, the much celebrated follow-up Sunday at Devil Dirt and their latest, Hawk.
“the chemistry between the two is riveting… Campbell’s songs are simple, direct, gorgeous… If, after the brilliant Ballad, you had said that this pair would reunite and make an even better album, I wouldn’t have believed you – but I think they just have” - Sunday Times – 5 Stars ***** (CD of the Week)
“Campbell and Lanegan are seriously making their mark… They’ve surpassed the Nancy Sinatra / Lee Hazlewood comparisons to create an intense, fluid sound that’s uniquely their own” -
MOJO – 4 Stars ****
