Multi-talented singer/songwriter to perform

First concert for the Sooke Folk Music Society set for Dec. 7

Camille Miler will perform at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church on December 7.

This Saturday, December 7, marks our first concert in the Sooke Folk Music Society’s 2013 – 2014 concert season. We are very pleased to be presenting Camille Miller a former Vancouver Island singer/songwriter now living in Mexico, but returning to her Island roots to promote her latest CD release, Parallel to The Sea.

Camille Miller wrote her first protest song at the age of eleven in response to the injustices of being grounded. She continued to write during her early teenage years as a way to express the frustrations of life as an “army brat.”  Music was an early outlet for Camille to express her true feelings. It still is.

Mowtown, Carly Simon, The Carpenters, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and the Rolling Stones shaped Camille’s musical tastes at an early age, and were the voices that put her to sleep at night and still provide comfort to her as she brings an updated version of vocal grace and soul of yesteryears to her modern pop sound.

Camille released her first solo album (cassette actually…) Things People See in 1998 with the help of Vancouver Island producer Rick Salt of Lois Lane Studios.

With the support of Bruce Allen (manager of Bryan Adams and Michael Buble) Camille toured the UK three times and caught the ear of Bristol-based Sugar Shack Records who released her third album Carnarvon Street (Sugar Shack, 2005).

In spring of 2012 Camille began work on her fifth solo recording. Back in Canada with Rick Salt of Lois Lane studios, she reunited with Doug Elliott and Pat Steward of ‘ODDS’, completing a six song EP entitled Parallel to The Sea. The EP builds on recurrent Miller themes; the anguish and delight of day-to-day life, with a new twist of inspiration from her two young children, and the resulting sleep deprivation.

As the summer of 2012 drew to a close, Camille finished shooting a video for new song Tiniest of Hearts, reuniting her with longtime friend and video producer Tash Baycroft of Filter Studios out of Nanaimo.

We hope you will join us for an evening of exceptional music with this incredibly talented lady. It happens this Saturday, December 7 at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 1962 Murray Road in Sooke. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with the show starting at 8. Tickets will be available at the door or in advance at Shopper’s Drug Mart in Sooke.
