The Spot Welcomes Camille G. Brown Feb 10th at 10pm est!

Classically trained, Camille started piano at the early age of 8. She began singing at the age of 6. “We all had our role model that we’d try to be in the mirror with a hairbrush for a microphone,” Camille says. “For me, it was either Janet Jackson or Whitney Houston.” She attributes her musical talent to her mom, who has always sung soulful music in the church and still fills the house with it.

Camille has been a singer and keyboardist in several bands: Soul Prodigy, Kewl Beanz, and Rented Mule, just to name a few. She has performed in several venues, including The Taste of Chicago, The West Oak Lane Jazz & Arts Festival, The Rumba, Checkerboard Lounge, Weeds, and many more.  In addition, Camille was nominated for the Outstanding Achievement Award in Music by the African American Arts Alliance.  No stranger to the studio as well, she has finished her self-titled CD, Camille G. Brown. 

People describe her music as upbeat, smooth, and relaxing. It is there to pique your listening senses. Each song takes you by surprise and captivates you in a different way so that you never know what to expect. But somehow, it congeals under the same umbrella. “In my music, I am many times telling the story of something that I experienced, or I am speaking directly to someone,” Camille describes. Essentially, she feels that everyone’s life is a story. She has just set hers to music.
