Camille & Stuie
Tasmanian Stuie French is a master of the country/jazz guitar-style. His smooth voice harks back to the days of Tommy Duncan singing with Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys – no pretence or exaggeration. He has toured with major country artists such as Merle Haggard and and has been invited on stage to play by Les Paul in New York.

When Camille Te Nahu arrived in Australia in 1999 her vocal talents were immediately recognised by Kasey Chambers and Beccy Cole who employed her as their backing singer, both on the road and in the studio. Over the years, Camille and Stuie would often cross paths as they both toured with Australian country stars Troy Cassar Daly and Gina Jeffreys.

Camille and Stuie released albums – Stuie with the Feral Swing Katz (Come out Swingin’, Feral Swing Katz with Peter Busher and Round 3) and Camille a solo album (Camille Te Nahu), But it wasn’t until 2002 when their stars aligned and they became partners.

“I’ll never forget the first time I heard Camille sing,” says Stuie. “It took my breath away as well as the rest of the guys in band, and suddenly our musicianship went up a couple of notches. Over the years she has taught me a new way to approach guitar playing. After all, why would you want to get in the way of a voice like that? Our different musical backgrounds over time have combined to give us a fresh yet traditional sound.”

Camille sounds like no other singer, with a style that is effortless, a sound that is rich, deep and very easy on the ear. Camille has featured on television with a full episode of her musical life on ‘Unsung Heroes of Maori Music’.

On that balmy evening when your work is done and all you want to do is pop a beer and admire the sunset: no conversation, just want to let your mind drift; no visitors, your girl is by your side. What CD will you put on? Camille and Stuie’s Big Days & Little Years. It’s like a cool breeze.

John Williamson

At the 2013 Tamworth Golden Guitar Awards, Camille and Stuie won their first Golden Guitar Award together for Best Alternative Country Album of the Year. Big Days & Little Years is their fourth, and finest album together.

Camille and Stuie are truly a musical marriage made in heaven: take a bit from Les Paul and Mary Ford, Chet Atkins and Anne Murray, you have a taste of what Camille and Stuie have to offer. Be sure to come along to the folk club! Biscuits will be served at half-time.
