Singer-songwriter Camille Trail grew up and still lives on a cattle station in Central Queensland, and it provides the location for the stunning video that accompanies her debut single, ‘Humming Chain’, which has its premiere today.
Trail has long been a fan of the music of Shane Nicholson, and it is Nicholson who produced the track, which is an evocative, confronting and haunting song about slavery.
Trail has played piano since the age of eight, started writing songs not long after and recently studied songwriting at JMC Academy in Brisbane. ‘Humming Chain’ and the rest of her forthcoming album, Devil’s Drink – also produced by Nicholson – were written while Trail was at the academy.
She says that her driving force in life is her passion for music. ‘I recognise how powerful music is,’ she says, ‘and how it can help people, so if I have the power to be able to do that, that will also be a driving force.’
With such a powerful song to introduce her music to the world, she is well on her way to making a mark.
