There have been three stages to my work: an early one of auditions, occasional broadcasts, television appearances and performances in clubs and theatres. Venues included St Andrew's Halls, the Third Eye Centre, the Metropole and the Close Theatre Glasgow, the George Hotel Edinburgh and The Troubadour London.
During a second stage the performing and writing of songs gave way to a different interest (see www.custtad.com) and, as a consequence, the songs were placed on a side burner with only occasional attempts to do something with them.
This third stage has arrived much later than envisaged but from an accumulation of mostly unheard material a series of singles EPs and CD's are being prepared. More about those which have been worked on so far can be found at www.sheilakcameron.com and on www.glalell.com
How I came to be doing this at all can probably be traced back to a childhood of being sung to, of singing songs and later of performing them - sometimes professionally and usually accompanied by a guitar. But an interest in trying to write my own material increased after the Scottish Playwright Joan Ure asked me to put music to some of her words - just as I was hearing the work of Dylan and the Beatles for the first time
