Camille Peruto is a young singer songwriter from southern New Jersey. The prodigy has only been playing the guitar and writing songs for a little over five years, belying the breadth and depth of her songwriting styles and lyrics. More than one observer has described her as an “old soul” or “born with wisdom”. Camille’s musical influences are varied, from the Beatles to Alanis Morissette, from Tom Petty to Paramore, from Johnny Cash to Carrie Underwood.
Camille has been blessed with an angelic voice, marked by both vulnerability and extraordinary control. Her sound cannot be referred to other popular voices of her time. She is a bit of a throwback in her handling of thematic material, in both the lyrical and musical senses. Camille’s songwriting output is to this point astounding.
