Fingerstyle Guitar Player Camille Nelson is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist. Her music is fun and fresh, offering feel-good beats and moving melodies that any audience can easily relate to. Her pop/rock/folk style, which was influenced by artists including U2 and Alanis Morissette, evolved to her current style of percussive guitar elements integrated with violin and ethereal vocals, which has marked her as a fingerstyle guitar player. Camille’s first album, First Words, was released in 2009 and was engineered and produced by Nashville producer, Giles Reaves, for the independent label Dimmi Records. Reaves is currently working with Camille recording her fingerstyle work. She is currently working on an EP that will feature her acoustic fingerstyle guitar work and is slated for release Spring 2017. Much of Camille’s music relates to her extensive world travel. She speaks German and Italian and has been to over 60 countries—gaining multicultural experiences that have strongly influenced her song-writing. She has lived in South Africa, Germany, Switzerland, and Italy during and after earning her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Utah and a doctorate degree from Gonzaga University. She is now a college professor teaching MBA courses in management, communication, and leadership.
Camille Nelson has worked with various fingerstyle guitar players including Andy Mckee, Billy McLaughlin, Antoine Dufour, Stephen Bennett, and Kaki King. She was deeply inspired by works by Michael Hedges and in particular, Andy Mckee's "Drifting" and Kaki King’s “Playing with Pink Noise,” whose pieces both feature percussive elements that Camille also integrates into her compositions. She also incorporates and layers violin and vocal tracks into her songs. As Camille Nelson's guitar teacher, Kaki King helped Camille develop and master her guitar skills while encouraging Camille to continue working on more original compositions establishing her as a fingerstyle guitar player. Camille Nelson has performed all around the United States and various parts of the world. She completed a tour around Ireland where she performed in several venues displaying her fingerstyle guitar work and original compositions. She has also performed in a variety of venues around Europe where she has earned praise as a fingerstyle guitar player and pop/rock singer.
Camille Nelson is also a well-rounded athlete that has earned praise as a competitive runner and triathlete having run over 15 marathons, including the Boston Marathon, Great Wall Marathon, and the Antarctica Marathon. Born and raised in Salt Lake, Camille is the youngest of six similarly musical children. She was strongly influenced by her father, a violist, and her mother, a professional opera singer. Camille continues to make music while she teaches to help further her goal of motivating and touching people through the power of music. With Camille's work in music as well as in academia, Camille's dream is to use her Ph.D in communication and her music skills to impact people through her creativity and music as she has been deeply impacted by the music and people that have had a profound impact on her life.
