International and multilingual yet proudly and distinctly Canadian, Camille Miller has built an extensive career wowing audiences around the world. April 6th marked the release of “Guilty Birds”, a stylish video shot in Mexico City and funded entirely by her loyal fan base. The song is the first single culled from “More Than This”, the restless redhead’s latest effort. Also crowd funded, the album includes “Tiniest of Hearts”, a touching ode to her daughter which has received both commercial and CBC Radio airplay.

 

cmiller-cover2bBorn in Germany and raised on military bases all over Canada, Camille was brought up on a steady diet of Motown, Carly Simon, The Carpenters, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and the Rolling Stones. Inspired by these greats of yesteryear Camille made her solo debut with a 6 song EP titled ‘Things People See’. It marked the beginning of a longtime partnership with notable Vancouver Island producer Rick Salt (Irish Rovers, Leeroy Stagger).

Since that time a steady stream of music has followed including collaborations with Doug Elliot (Odds), Pat Steward (Bryan Adams) and many others. Camille’s blend of whisper to a roar vocal dynamics and onstage charisma quickly won over industry heavyweights as well as audiences. Manager Bruce Allen (Michael Buble, Bryan Adams) helped Camille get a foothold in the UK through numerous tours while indie labels like Sound of Pop, Sugar Shack and Synergy have released her six diverse albums worldwide. Of those, 2002’s ‘She Knows’ spawned a video for “I Always Will” and TV placements while “Somewhere Near The Truth” (2008) was recorded, produced and engineered by Geraldo Dominelli (Loverboy).

A prolific collaborator, Camille  has contributed as a vocalist and writer to a number of major label albums in both North America and Europe. She added vocals to ‘Lost’ by US-based Electronica grouny Orchestra. This exposure built Camille’s fanbase in Poland and secured her regular billing at some of the country’s top live music venues. A recent experience as a member of a house band with renowned local players in Sao Paulo, Brazil honed Camille’s already formidable performance chops.

2017 could very well be her busiest year yet with shows already confirmed in the UK, Poland, Canada and Brazil. Camille Miller and her Guilty Bird Band deliver a passionate rousing set of music which thrills fans and turns strangers into converts.p Baligomingo, whose widely acclaimed album ‘Beneath the Surface’ was released on BMG/RCA. She also wrote and sang four songs on Polish pop icon Robert Chojnacki’s album ‘Saxophonic’ (BMG Poland), culminating in a concert with Chojnacki and the Baltic Symphony.
