My material includes spoken word and blues and folk influenced tracks.
I only write about what interests me but it would be excellent if in the process I inadvertently produced one good song
The review below is probably the best one I have had.
Hello Music Song of the Day
for Jan. 31, 2011
Artist: Sheila K. Cameron
Song: Mr. Moon
Genre: Pop – cabaret, easy listening, blues
Location: Glasgow, Scotland
Similar artists: Billie Holliday, Shirley Bassey, Paul Simon, Judy Garland
Description: Scottish poet-songwriter pretty much takes your breath away in the first couple bars of “Mr. Moon” with a gentle cabaret blues; the easy swing, spare arrangement and especially Cameron’s enchanting and haunted alto are pretty much impossible to deny. Add to that the story behind her lyrics – the song was inspired by a neighbor’s World War II story of scraping a friend’s corpse out of an exploded tank under the moonlight, using a shovel – and you have a song that you’ll carry with you for quite a while. Meanwhile, there’s precious little information about her on the Internet, but “Mr. Moon” has gotten some plays on Iain Anderson’s BBC Radio Scotland singer-songwriters program. Enough plays, in fact, that he’s nicknamed her simply “SKC.”
