For 30,000 Kiwi's the new millenium began with the music of
Camille Te Nahu who was playing to the biggest crowd of her life, which turned into the best sing-a-long party her home-town of Gisborne had ever seen.
With her Polynesian roots and a natural feel for rhythm, Camille's sound is rich, classy and captivating. From her first soulful note here's a woman who can take a song and make it her own, whether its roots, pop or R & B.
Little wonder since relocating to Australia from New Zealand Camille
has been snapped up by top-selling artists, Kasey Chambers, Gina Jeffreys, Troy Cassar-Daley, Beccy Cole and Sara Storer.
On arrival in Australia Camille snagged the opening spot on Kasey Chambers "The Captain" tour, as well as singing backing vocals in Kasey's show. For nearly two years Camille travelled Australia and the USA with Kasey Chambers, highlights being her TV appearances on "Austin
City Limits" and "Oxygen" in the USA and "Good News Week" and the CMAA Gold Guitar Awards in Australia.

2001 saw Camille touring with three of Australia's biggest stars, Kasey Chambers, Gina Jeffreys and Rick Price.
