RIP Carey Lander - 1982-2015
It is with great sadness that we report on the death of Camera Obscura keyboard player and vocalist, Carey Lander, who lost her fight against a rare form of cancer today. The band revealed the news on their Facebook page.
Lander, who joined the band in 2002, featured on four of the band's albums. She had been raising money for Sarcoma UK. She had originally been diagnosed with bone cancer in 2011 but had overcome the disease; unfortunately only to relapse this year.
Our thoughts are with Carey's family, friends and bandmates. The world truly is a lesser place without her in it.
