‘Really rate that, love the beautiful sound of Camisayo’ – Tom Simkins, BBC Introducing in Cambridgeshire.
Camisayo is a folk-root act from Cambridge, UK. Originally a group of friends playing together, Camisayo quickly made name for themselves in the Cambridge music scene.
Only after a year and a half of performing, Camisayo played in most of Cambridge’s music venues, and have since played further afield in Hertfordshire, Suffolk, Norfolk and London. They have released two EPs, are already working on an album and are on the line-up of several festival this summer.
Their sound combines powerful bluesy vocals, intricate guitar picking, crisp and tight percussions, and lyrics that are written straight from the heart. On stage, Camisayo show a real complicity between its members and know how to work a crowd. Camille’s energy on stage is magnetic, Tom’s guitar playing always catches the attention, and Ollie’s well thought-out drumming is the cherry on the cake.
Their music has been broadcast on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and have been on the Cambridge 105 ‘Unsigned chart’ for six consecutive weeks with their single ‘Keep Smiling’.
Camisayo recently released their new EP ‘Clean Slate’ on the 12th of April. Produced by singer-songwriter/producer Dan Wilde, the EP sees the release of the single ‘Keep Smiling’ along with a music video directed by Sam J. Lance Photography & Video.
