CAM Country

People Magazine, October, 2014

Now here is an artist on the fast track to the top of country music.

 

I just finished documenting her US Tour (our adventures in tour-doc/social media promotion are coming soon to the blog) but I'm eager to share some of her recent successes:  Sold-out shows, her single "Down This Road" on country radio, her singing at The Songwriter's Hall of Fame, and booking Stagecoach!

 

 < The Kickstarter campaign and Living Room Sessions video are getting a little attention too.

Shauna Brittenham - Back in the blogs

Music Load, June 2014

 

This summer, Shauna contacted me to create a series of live performance videos of her recording session at The Fortress LA. She was interested in including a cover song, and I had just heard the new Black Keys single, Fever. The song was a great fit. Shauna ran with it and came up with a killer mashup between Fever and Sweet Dreams (The Eurythmics). 

 

Excerpt:

'If you've ever had the chance to see in her person, you know how absolutely stunning, kind and understatedly humble she is. She has that intangible elusive "it" quality that you know is special.'

Jacq Becker - In The Music Blogs

Flurt Magazine July 2013

 

The very talented Jacq Becker has been popping up on bunches of blogs, and our Meet The Artist video made it into Flurt!'s fall issue

 

Excerpt:

"After one unusual night of doing absolutely nothing, I turned on my TV, to ION television. Criminal Minds – my favorite show (right next to History Channel’s “Decoded”) had just come onto commercial break.  They were playing this song during the commercial and the beat was too much to resist. I JUMPED on my computer, and I searched these lyrics “If he puts his fate in tender hands, that’s an honest man.” A similar question was asked on Yahoo! Answers, and I’d found that I could buy the song from iTunes… So I did. Eventually, I put the song up on youtube, and found that Ms. Becker had a channel of her own.
