Camille Harrison is an American singer-songwriter, engineer, and producer.  Born in the home of country music, Nashville, TN, and raised in the musical melting pot of Memphis, TN, Camille absolutely loved everything about music and the making of it from the time she was very young.  She began singing as a little girl, her first song, Hello Dolly, that her Mother taught her while she played piano.  Her Mother, a classical piano teacher and church choir, has had a wonderful influence on Camille's musicality.  She began singing her first shows as a young teen on the stages at her Father’s car dealerships and Mid-South Concerts, the Memphis Country Jubilee (founded by her Dad), the Millington Navy Base, the Orpheum, and the Mid-South Coliseum as well as a lead dancer and singer at Memphis, TN theme park, Liberty Land.  During her teens, she became 1st Chair All-State Vocalist and was voted Most-Talented and Class Beauty by her beloved high school peers, as well as she opened concerts for her much-loved music promoter and artist manager, Father, who promoted shows for Hank Williams, Jr., Conway Twitty, Dottie West, Dolly Parton, Glen Campbell, and many others.  Her first recordings were in the famous RCA Studios, Leon Russell Studios, and Woodland Studios in Nashville, TN.  In her college years, along with playing leading roles such as Mabel in Pirates of Penzance in professional theatre Playhouse on the Square, Camille was featured in People Magazine for her recording of a song entitled Memphis in May produced by Floyd Cramer.  During that recording, Carl Perkins happened to be walking by the studio and asked as is quoted in People Magazine “who is singing?…  Let that girl sing…”  which was awarded the first original theme song for the well-known Memphis in May Festival, which then she sang for the Sunset Symphony that same year.  She performed in all of clubs up and down legendary Beale Street and also in the Peabody Hotel Mallards for over a year each week.  With her performance schedule in Allentown, PA, Jackson, Mississippi, and all over the south, Camille took a break from college.  She later returned in order to study more composition and arranging and jazz vocals and went on to declare a major in Commercial Music and to become the first Commercial Music Major with an emphasis in jazz-vocal and became the first graduate in commercial-jazz-vocal from Memphis State Univ., (now UofM).  During that time she met and began writing songs with Christian music with pianist/producer, Andrew Jackson. Throughout those years and beyond, Camille sang for many school functions about self-esteem awareness, for churches, and Christian sports camps such as Kanakuk-Kanakomo with renowned speaker and tremendous mentor of kids, Joe White, often around Memphis as well as in Missouri, Colorado, and Texas.  After graduating, she relocated to Nashville and started making the rounds in local venues performing singer-songwriter events and fine-dining restaurants, Merchants Restaurant, a favorite regular for several years playing solo piano and vocals bringing in various musicians for special events.  During the same two week period Victor Wooten arrived, she sang live bass/vocal duos with Vic and recorded with Roy Future-man Wooten and many other musicians around town including being invited by Bela to sing  a non-credited appearance on the first Bela Fleck and the Flecktone record recording vocals on Bela’s song entitled, Sunset Road.  She has toured the US as a solo artist and with other artist in the countries such as Scotland, England, Italy and has since sung hundreds of recording sessions including gold and platinum records, The Prince of Egypt SoundTrack, Jo Dee Messina’s I’m Alright, and Chris LeDoux’s One Road Man, has several endorsements with various companies such as Taylor Guitars, won awards from organizations such as Memphis Songwriter’s Association, written for publishing companies in Nashville and scored a Billboard Top #40 country hit with co-writers Christy Dannnemiller and Robin Lee entitled, Standing Still recorded by The Clark Family Experience, performed as a lead dancer at Opryland, and has penned songs with legendary songwriters such as legendary much-loved songwriter, Merle Kilgore and many others.  Merle, Hank Williams Jr., Dave and Deon Burgess contacted Camille to sing The Blues Man for one of Hank Jr.’s music business insider records, knowing she is a big fan of this song from her having learned of this song and other great classic songs through her beloved Father.  Camille has written, produced, and released records including very recently released, the timeless message and melodic classic, The Jelly Bean Jar!, co-written with legendary much-loved songwriter, Don Pfrimmer (who wrote classic songs such as Nestor, The Long-Eared Christmas Donkey, Gene Autry, Don Pfrimmer), The Big Parade (traditional jazz album), When God Did Children Make (written by her Mom, Brucene Harrison), and When it Comes to Love (singer-songwriter album recorded w Larry Chaney and others), and most recently released re-discovered… Rebound, her first recording of her first original song recorded in 1984 with Executive Producer, Shelton Harrison.
