Cool Cat - Camille
By Jeremy Grand
Cool Cat is a cover band, and they seem like one of those bands that performs at special occasions and such, so the first thought that might cross ones mind would be, "Well, how good can they be? All they do is play covers and play at weddings," right? The funny thing is, Camille, the lead female vocalist of the group is so amazingly talented that the previous statement that you just made in your head is a load of cool crap.
Camille's voice is so incredibly strong and classic that even Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday would be perking upright in their graves just so they could check out their modern day competition. Honestly, any formal affair would be absolutely lucky to be graced by the presence of these fantastic performers.
Apparently, the band is releasing a full-length CD this year, and if you want to woo your woman with flowers, candlelight and a home-cooked meal, you can either be typical with a soundtrack of Michael Buble (which is a good choice, just typical), or you can start up a conversation about local talent with a soundtrack of Cool Cat.
Camille's four track demo is a quick treat, belting out with effortless charm "Walk Away, Love Is a Train, I Can't Get Started" and the bittersweet classic "Ain't No Sunshine," making us all think that she grew up in early 20th century Georgia, and the words and sounds flow like gin in a speakeasy.
