She released her debut EP, So Alive in 2008. So Alive was soon selected as the soundtrack for a number of surfing DVDs and events, including the Quiksilver Pro France in 2009.

In 2010, Campbell released her sophomore EP, Preview. She toured in support of Preview across Australia and Japan, playing at the 2010 Sounds Australia showcase in Kobe, Japan.
