Tracyanne Campbell (born 18 May 1974) is a Scottish singer who is the lead vocalist of the Glasgow-based indie pop band Camera Obscura.

Born in Glasgow, Campbell founded Camera Obscura alongside John Henderson and Gavin Dunbar in 1996.

Camera Obscura released numerous albums such as Biggest Bluest Hi Fi, Let's Get Out of This Country and, one of their most successful albums, My Maudlin Career. Campbell and her band have worked beside some of indie music’s biggest names such as Tucker Martine, Stuart Murdoch, and Peter Bjorn and John.

Campbell spoke of the loss she felt after bandmate and friend Carey Lander died in 2015. In an interview with The Guardian, Campbell said “We were all robbed of Carey.” Campbell also wrote Lander’s obituary for The Guardian newspaper.[1]

In 2016, Campbell married in a secret wedding ceremony at Brooklyn City Hall to musician Tim Davidson.[2]

Most recently she has worked on a project Tracyanne & Danny, alongside English musician Danny Coughlan. In May 2018 they released their self-titled album under Merge Records.[3]
