Claire Cameron Band
They have been performed live on the show and been interviewed by Alan Raw of BBC West Yorkshire Introducing on BBC Radio Leeds numerous times now and you can hear them on the radio again Thursday 20th September 2012 on Alan's show and with Michelle Dalgety on her show for Yorkshire Music Collective. Last year CCB took to the stage as a full electric band on for their first London headline gig at 100 Club and were so well received they hit the headline slot again to kick start 2012 for Feedme Music's January Future Rock night. Heading back to 100 Club for a third time on 28th September 2012 CCB will be launching their much anticipated EP 'Time Will Tell' with Feedme Music. Recorded with Neil Sadler, whose credits include working at Maison Rouge (Jethro Tull) with Laura Marling on her early recordings, and the acclaimed Blues Rock Guitarist Larry Miller, at No Machine Studios. Having taken a break from the live gigging circuit for a few months to focus on writing and recording, Claire Cameron Band couldn't be more ready to bring their new material to the live stage! Set to be the best offering to come from CCB to date 'Time Will Tell' delivers forty minutes of female-fronted alternative rock with a melodic story-telling thread from start to finish. Best described as 'a mini rock opera' by guitarist, Pete Nash, pour yourself a cold one and settle down to be enveloped by their new rock sounds. Better still, join the band and special guests at the launch party at 100 Club! After the launch CCB plan to take their live show to music festivals and original music venues across the UK. The CD 'Time Will Tell' is out on Friday 28th September and the launch party is on the same day. PRESS: 'Cameron's beautiful, haunting, candid vocals that travel on dreamlike keyboard parts simply demand to be heard.' A Musical Priority 'With influences ranging from Beyonce to Led Zeppelin, there is most definitely something for everyone in Claire Cameron Band’s music, and I suggest if they are playing a gig near you, you go and check them out!' Chelle's Rock Blog 'More thank just a rock group, more a way of life..' Borin Van Loon 'The music of Claire Cameron Band takes a cross section of almost every genre imaginable and flits between them in a surprisingly cohesive manner' No Title Magazine Live Reviews & Listeners' Feedback; The music of Claire Cameron Band takes a cross section of almost every genre imaginable and flits between them in a surprisingly cohesive manner.
Rock, metal, folk and prog all have a place on ‘Time I Start’ as the captivating voice of front-woman Claire, along with the hooky choruses, drive the song forwards. ‘No Illusions’ is gentler but equally well constructed with sweeping guitar from Pete Nash while subtle keyboard parts offer a perfect backdrop to the powerful vocals. ‘Question Every Day’ sees the rock vibe return with a vengeance as the rhythm section kicks things up a notch and the ending guitar solo reaches just the right level of self-indulgence to be really satisfying. Overall the effect is very ‘Fleetwood Mac-meets-Imogen Heap’ but with something a little more volatile and fiery lurking below the melodic surface.
After several years on the circuit it is great to see that Claire has found a band with which her talent can truly thrive. Rebecca Atkinson, No Title Magazine (Review of Demo available on iTunes, Spotify, Tesco and HMV - just type in 'Claire Cameron Band' to find) http://www.notitlemagazine.com/article.php?id=68 'Leeds Festival Fringe finale ended in style at the 'Well' on Wednesday with the Claire Cameron Band hosting a gorgeous night of music. Claire Cameron and her band played out the Fringe with flamboyant flair. Energetic, contemporary and unique, Claire's band had the audience writhing and clapping with pulse quickening rhythms combined with delicious harmony and melody and a stunningly visual stage presence. What a great night at the 'Well' anybody who didn't go missed out! All of these bands are are worth going to see on their own merit-do we really have to wait a year for the next Leeds Fringe?' Andrew Sugden Yorkshire Gig Guide http://yorkshiregigguide.blogspot.com/2010/08/last-night-at-fringe-claire-cameron.html ‘In my experience it is not often that you come across an unsigned act with the calibre and professionalism of Claire Cameron Band. Fronting them is the exceptionally talented songwriter and performer Claire Cameron who has ability and prowess deserving of serious attention.
From the moment I first heard the songs I knew that this band has talent, and not only that, they have the talent to go all the way! With Pete Nash on lead guitar, complimenting the piano lines with intricately constructed and brilliantly executed riffs the songs come alive and his musical skill shines through. This band should be an inspiration to all bands young and old, of all genre's; they show tightness and showmanship beyond their years. Obviously dedicated and hard working, Claire Cameron Band may well become a major player in the industry of show business. The professional attitude and approach of this band, coupled with the outstanding writing, live performance capabilities and slick image will ensure that they take Claire Cameron music to the masses.’ -Ex Bassist to Belinda Carlisle, Lisa Stansfield, David Essex and Nadia Davenport (previously in Brand New Heavies) ‘I have known Claire for several years and watched her blossom from an acoustic singer-songwriter to a fully fledged composer and performer.
Her powerful and distinctive voice is a pleasure to hear. I have observed Claire Cameron and her Band with growing interest as their gigs bring in more crowds, and more positive feedback every time they play. Seeing how Claire has embraced her role as frontperson of a fully polished band with such enthusiasm and vigour gives me confidence in this bands’ commitment and staying power. Claire Cameron Band stands out because they interact with their audience, introducing themselves positively and performing emotive and catchy songs in an engaging and lively way.
When you see these guys you feel part of their performance and it is hard not to find yourself singing along to the choruses! I'm looking forward to seeing where 2009 takes them. This band is one to watch and I would like to see them gain the recognition they truly deserve.’ -Roxanne Yeganegy, Editor No Title Magazine Leeds. 'Sounding and looking good claire!' -The Haggis Horns 'I was amazed at your songs, beautifully written, played and sung. I am now an official fan.Peace' -Chunky butt Funky 'Thoughtful, heartfelt lyrics, punchy piano, solid rhythms, electric guitar snaking in and out of powerful verses and catchy choruses; the Claire Cameron Band have it all. It’s been a while since I’ve heard an original talent supported by such a sympathetic and exciting band.
Claire is not only a chanteuse of considerable charisma but a poet to boot - she draws you into her songs so that you are living the emotion she obviously felt during composition. If there’s any justice in the music biz these days ( and there may be a little ) the band fully deserve exposure to a wider audience. Comparisons? Hmm, a difficult one. Tori Amos meets Fleetwood Mac? Check ‘em out while you can still see them in the clubs and decide for yourself – they are destined for greater things.' -Scott Hunter Sessions: Jethro Tull, Mungo Jerry Currently with the Larry Miller Band.
