Anomie Belle: Seattle, Washington
Anomie Belle has quickly earned a name for herself as a respected musician and singer, as well as an award-winning film composer, in Seattle, Washington’s notable indie music scene. Born Toby Campbell, Anomie Belle is foremost a classically trained violinist, whose crafted alias serves to emphasize her beautifully layered and downtempo electronic sound with poignant, socially conscious lyrics.
