Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Camille is the youngest of six talented and musically inclined siblings. Her father was a violist, and her mother was an opera singer – both heavily influencing Camille’s pursuit and interest in music and performance.
In addition to family, Camille draws musical and creative inspiration from her travels abroad. She’s visited more than 70 countries and speaks German and Italian. Drawing from a deep respect for and admiration of diverse global cultures, she integrates a uniquely multicultural perspective into songwriting following years living in South Africa, Germany, Switzerland and Italy prior to and while pursuing her Masters degrees at the University of Utah and Utah State University and later her Ph.D. at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. She also lived in Nashville for a couple of years, working with various artists to help build her musical skillset.
