About CAMILLE TRAIL:
Camille Trail was introduced to the joy of music at an early age.
“Most mornings I’d wake up to music — Norah Jones, Bob Dylan, Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson, and other great singer songwriters. Dad and I would dance in the kitchen while Mum cooked breakfast. I think that’s why I love music so much — plus I loved listening to my mum play piano accordion — it was my entire childhood really”.
She learned piano from the age of eight and was soon writing her own songs. After high school she committed to her musical ambitions and studied song writing at the JMC Academy in Brisbane.
While attending JMC Camille would study by day and play as many gigs as possible at night — honing her craft, testing her songs on audiences and finding a community of peers.
It’s also when she wrote the songs on her forthcoming album.
“I was writing in the early hours of the morning or late at night. I found that was when inspiration hit me the most. I was inspired by heartbreak of course, love, and also what I was reading at the time and even just looking out the window and people-watching.”
Camille sent a demo to Shane Nicholson asking if he’d be interested in producing her album. Nicholson responded enthusiastically and the album was recorded in three weeks during February 2019.
Camille graduated from JMC with a Bachelor of Music, specialising in songwriting, in April 2019. In July that year her debut single and video Humming Chain was released independently. It reached #6 on the iTunes singer songwriter chart and introduced the world to an extraordinary new talent. Her second single Devil’s Drink soared through the charts, peaking at #19 on the Music Network Country Airplay chart and #16 on the CMC Top 30 Countdown.
Camille’s subsequent single, Little History, a laidback song about hanging out with friends, having a few drinks and a dance and really just forgetting about everything else, enjoyed similar chart success and featured on Spotify’s Country Chill and Apple Music’s Southern Craft playlists with over 110, 000 streams to date.
