Her one-woman show of original songs Camille! Young! Silly! has played the Duplex Cabaret multiple times and was part of Ars Nova Theatre’s ANT FEST 2008. A graduate from Emerson College in Boston, she is the recipient of an Emerson EVVY award for her song “Muffin Man.” Camille has been a cast member of The Moon a variety show based in Brooklyn since Feburary 2009. She plays piano around the city and is a clown for birthday parties. She loves to travel, speaks French and is SCUBA certified. Camille is also a producer and director.
2008 EVVY Award- Best Vocal Performance for original song "Muffin Man"
Singer/songwriter Camille hails from Boulder but studies in Boston, and
devotes her music to the art of silly. Her focus is fun but her vocals carry the
gravitas of dust-bowl beaten jazz singers from 1937. Her tracks Muffin Man
and Chopsticks Duet are particularly ridiculous, while Among the Trees and
Lullaby reveal a quieter, soulful range to her work.
James Roland - Fenceposts
Camille Harris [...] is clever with a lyric (Do you know the muffin man?
/Cause my life's a dreary lane) and is a tuneful composer to boot.
Furay - Curtain Up
Regarding Camille's musical Muffin Man: It’s not often these days that
audiences are treated to a classic romantic musical. Muffin Man delivers a
charming one and does so in a modern way. [...] All in all, Muffin Man is a
delightful show that will leave a smile on your face.
