Uh Huh Her
She is a native of Austin, Texas, and after meeting at a party, Grey began working with Leisha Hailey (actress on The L Word and former member of 1990s group The Murmurs) on songs which would be released in 2007 on the EP I See Red. The album was recorded at Grey's L.A. home, and the vocals were reportedly recorded inside of Grey's bathroom.
They had an album released in 2008 titled Common Reaction and finished touring last year for that album. In Spring of 2011 they released a second EP titled "Black and Blue" and finished a tour promoting it in May 2011. They released their sophomore record titled "Nocturnes" in late summer/early Fall of 2011.
Camila is an out lesbian. In 2011, news of Grey's romantic relationship with Uh Huh Her bandmate Leisha Hailey became public after the two were ejected from a Southwest Airlines flight for arguing with a flight attendant who asked them to stop kissing.
