Claire Cameron Band
Prior to her expat years in Vietnam, Claire fronted the critically acclaimed Claire Cameron Band. CCB took the solo-singer-songwriter sound to a new level, and their album ‘Time Will Tell‘ delivers forty minutes of female-fronted alternative rock with a melodic story-telling thread from start to finish. Claire Cameron Band performed many passionate and slick live shows over the years they were together. Particular shows of note include headline slots at The 100 Club in London, Limetree Festival, BBC Introducing West Yorkshire on BBC Radio Leeds, 360 Club Leeds and Punk in Soho, London.
Song For Saigon
Claire Cameron Band’s last release, ‘Song For Saigon‘, was inspired by four years of living amid the history, motorbikes and city lights of Ho Chi Minh City, (Saigon), Vietnam. It is performed by Claire Cameron Band and recorded at No Machine Studios with Neil Sadler. The single generated a lot of local interest and you can watch a short interview for ‘Sharing Vietnam’ TV here.
