Steph Cameron Garners SiriusXM Female Artist of the Year Award Nomination and Brings Acclaimed Debut Album Back On Tour; Announces Spring Dates With Buffy Sainte-Marie + Summer Festival Performances

“Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady is a monumental, brilliant album… heralds the crowning of a bright new talent.” Pop Matters
“People don’t make records like this anymore. A voice, guitar and a little bit of harmonica – just a woman in a room laying her music onto 2-inch tape.” NOW Mag NNNN
“Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady is a fantastic debut destined to be on many year-end top 10 lists.” Winnipeg Free Press
“An impressive debut album, Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady delights from start to finish. Steph Cameron is the real deal.” Exclaim!
“There is character in her delivery and depth in her themes” The Vancouver Province CD Of The Week
“At the confluence of Dylan, Shakespeare and Elmore Leonard.” FYI

Steph Cameron’s music and lifestyle seem to echo another time and place. Think of the beatniks in the ’50s, communes, hitchhiking, and hopping freight trains. As comfortable on the road as any hitchhiker, Cameron has once again set out on the road after a very successful tour last fall supporting her acclaimed debut album, Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady. To get an idea of the haunting live performance that Cameron brings to the stage, Southern Souls and Exclaim! TV have captured her performing the songs “Goodbye Molly,” Five Dollars,” and “Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady,” live in the studio.

Out now Pheromone Recordings, the album presents the B.C.-based singer/songwriter in an honest and unvarnished setting, showcasing a genuinely exciting new roots music talent. And now Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady adds another critical garland as Steph secures a Female Artist of the Year nomination at the 2015 SiriusXM Indie Awards. Recorded in just three days at Revolution Recording in Toronto, the initial plan was to lay down just one song, she recalls. “I came to Toronto, met Kim Cooke for the first time, and we decided to record, mix, and master one song, ‘Goodbye Molly,’ as a test run. We had Molly down within a couple of hours so we kept going. We recorded for three consecutive days, finishing all 13 songs on the record. I had made a short trip to Toronto and left with a finished album.”

Beginning her musical career as a busker, the jump to recording artist is not one Cameron actually pursued or predicted. A demo tape landed in the hands Cowboy Junkies bass player Alan Anton and finally ended up on Cooke’s desk. Knocked out by what he heard, Cooke reached out to Cameron, eventually signing her to the label. “This is all about small steps for me,” says Cameron. “It is not something I was pursuing or felt driven to do. It is just something that has happened, and we’ll see where I take it.” Where she is taking it is back on road. All tour dates are listed below.
