Claire Cameron Band are regulars on the local gigging circuit and their highly accomplished and experimental style begs the question as to why they have not been snapped up already and flown off to bigger and grander things. Their set begins very strongly meshing complex guitar parts, powerful vocals and interestingly off kilter keyboard sections with personal lyrics and a confident stage persona. After a beautiful rendition of ‘Amethyst’ they finish strongly with a cover of Peggy Lee’s ‘Fever’ that puts Beyonce’s perfume advert rendition to shame. The band are so diverse in their style that not everything they do is crowd pleasing but their stage presence and the simultaneously gritty and polished nature of their performance keeps things interesting.
