Claire Cameron is a British singer-songwriter with a compelling voice.  Claire has been writing and performing original songs for over twenty years. She has graced stages across the UK and Europe and has just returned from a monthly residency at celebrated music venue ‘La Fenetre Soleil’ in Ho Chi Minh City, (Saigon) Vietnam.

Having grown up listening to everything from heavy metal to singer songwriters, her music reflects a huge range of influences. These include Led Zeppelin and Metallica right through to Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos, Sia, Alanis Morisette and Carina Round.   It is this eclectic taste in music and unique approach to songwriting which sets Claire Cameron apart in an ever evolving sound.

Prior to her expat years in Vietnam, Claire fronted the critically acclaimed Claire Cameron Band. CCB took the solo-singer-songwriter sound to a new level, and their album ‘Time Will Tell‘ delivers forty minutes of female-fronted alternative rock with a melodic story-telling thread from start to finish.  Particular shows of note include headline slots at The 100 Club  in London, Limetree Festival, BBC Introducing West Yorkshire on BBC Radio Leeds, and 360 Club Leeds.

Claire’s recent release Song For Saigon‘ was inspired by four years of living amid the history, motorbikes and city lights of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam. The single generated a lot of local interest, and you can watch a short interview for ‘Sharing Vietnam’ TV on http://www.clairecameron.net
