By the time she entered high school, she could sing in over fourteen different languages (thanks to an organization called Contra Costa Children’s Chorus). She traipsed across Europe with different choirs, singing in famous cathedrals for momentous occasions that only a teenager could take for granted. At age sixteen, she began arranging music. She co-founded both high school and collegiate a cappella groups to afford herself the opportunity to write and perform harmonies to her own taste.
At age twenty, she bought a guitar while studying abroad in the Netherlands. She played it (poorly) in the parks and squares of Amsterdam a few months later, hoping to sell it before returning to the States. No such luck. The unlikely pair traveled to the mountains of Nepal, crooning old standards such as “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” for a group of unruly fourth graders, and “Don’t Think Twice” to a crowd of fireflies and two Canadians.
A small warmth began to develop between this girl and her box of wood. Upon her return to the US of A, one of her best friends from college, Lisa Figone, had the good sense to marry a man who has more recording knowledge and owns more recording gear than any normal human being. The wish for a record was born and her once distant relationship with the guitar soon became a partnership that would carry her first twelve original songs to completion. Under the influence of her musical friends Jason Shafton, Michael Sherry, Hamilton Ulmer, Patrick Shipp, Gabriel Sherry, Emily Bergen and Andrea Poetzsch; Camaron sculpted her first solo piece of art in 2009 and will be gifting it to the world in the form of a record.
Titled after a philosophy she hopes to live by, “Heartforward” will be released January 2010. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
