All Music Guide:
Inspired by post-punk legacy of her hometown, Manchester, England, as well as classic college rock of the '80s and early '90s, LoneLady began her forays into lo-fi art punk by making four-track recordings with her guitar and drum machine in 2004. Her first single, Hi Ho Bastard/Fear No More, was released by Filthy Home Records in summer 2005; its raw yet atmospheric sound drew comparisons to Scout Niblett as well as rave reviews. That fall, LoneLady issued the Have No Past EP and began playing solo gigs around Manchester. Her first show outside of the area was a showcase at 2006's South by Southwest festival. In 2007, LoneLady connected with two musicians, drummer Oid and keyboardist China Tom, and the project became a trio. The Army/Intuition single arrived early that year, just before another appearance at SXSW. That fall, LoneLady inaugurated Too Pure's singles club with Early Comes the Haste/Joy; released in a limited edition of 500 copies, it marked the band's first sessions in an official studio. LoneLady signed to Warp and released the limited-edition single Inmaterial before issuing her debut album Nerve Up in early 2010.
Julie Campbell, otherwise known as LoneLady is a musician from Manchester, England. Her debut album, Nerve Up, appeared on Warp Records in 2010 and drew praise from Paul Morley.
Campbell graduated in Fine Arts at Manchester Metropolitan University. While at university, she started to write and record music on a four-track recorder. She released two CD-R singles and one 7" vinyl on Manchester-based label Filthy Home Recordings. This brought LoneLady to the attention of Too Pure, and in 2007 they released a 7" single, Early The Haste Comes. In 2009, Campbell signed to Warp Records. Her debut album, Nerve Up, was released 22 February 2010. In 2011, Campbell collaborated with Jah Wobble and Keith Levene and made the album Psychic Life, released by Cherry Red Records.
