Named for a character in an eerily vivid dream, Abagail Grey is the shape-shifting creative guise of Scottish singer-songwriter Claire Campbell. With influences ranging from Leonard Cohen to Chopin, the Beach Boys to the Jackson 5, she distils these disparate flavours into deceptively catchy, delicately off-kilter folk-pop ballads.
June 2012 saw an appearance at Summerfest in Milwaukee. Abagail Grey continue to work with long time collaborators Chris Geddes and Tony Doogan and will release the limited edition EP CD Dark Wood on August 30th followed by another EP in December.
