A new review for and old record
Chest Cold. YUCK
Perfect time to do some music work...
This album was not available on iTunes for a while, but it's back up...And I wanted to share a review I found about it...
A lot of you may know Vancouver's Mark Bignell from Radiobandcouver...
He has longtime been a friend and supporter of all things musically....Well except for that music which gets tonnes of praise and airplay...WHICH is why he and I are close....lol
He reviewed this album when it first came out in late 2008.
My favourite line is this:
"its abundantly clear that Camille is an artist who's not afraid to flesh out her fears and deliver material that is not only highly appealing"
Coming from Mark, I find this extremely endearing....
Thank-you Mr. Bignell for years of straight talk and LOVE of music...It is lovely to be supported by you.
SOMEWHERE NEAR THE TRUTH on Apple iTunes:
Thank you for the review Mark Bignell!
Camille Miller- Somewhere Near the Truth
Camille Miller voice is the centrepiece of this recording. A finely honed instrument that's passionate, soulful, and downright riveting, without being overbearing. Camille's songs are simple, but highly emotionally and melodically charged.
"Somewhere Near the Truth" is her third proper release which finely compliments her previous "Canarvan Street" album.
Her songs are very direct and personal, but, are offset by some very strong, memorable melodies. "Repair The Damage" with its catchy chorus could be a staple on Country radio ( as much of what they play isn't really Country ), "Tea & Sandwiches" with its jaunty Brit-Pop bounce and sometimes humorous lyrics about "sleeping on people's couches...trying not to get in the way", leaves you with a sunny, optimistic buzz.
"Tear Us Apart" has a soaring crescendo and a delightfully stubborn way of looking at the bright side. "Frustrated" has the kind of old-school Pop feel that's been almost forgotten in modern circles.
"Spin The Bottle's" chorus lingers in your subconscious long after hearing it. Geraldo Dominelli's empathetic production finely compliments Camille's muse. By the time you hear later tracks like "I'll Be Good", "The Real You" and "I Believe", its abundantly clear that Camille is an artist who's not afraid to flesh out her fears and deliver material that is not only highly appealing ,but, heartfelt and convincing as well. Modern Pop with soul.
