Biography

I am primarily a trance/electronica vocalist and wish to pursue this much more professionally with European & other overseas pros, since it's so popular there.

But of course I'll work w/ USA pros too! I also love most styles (and write most styles, mainly lyrics though), incl. AAA, pop/rock/alt, standards/blues/musicals, classic rock, covers, and more.

I'm more interested in recording and licensing/placement/publishing than live, but I'll consider live in the right situations. I am not really interested in whole bands/groups however (for live) unless doing backup or chorus. I prefer 1-3 (4 at most) for backup bands, or duos. In-studio I don't mind solo or any number of other singers/musicians.

My originals are always free or near-free to remix for unsigned/beginning DJs/producers or pros on spec/credit.

I'm available for paid demo/in-studio work or spec for pro songs of the styles I need. My rates for paid demo singing are $25-$50/hr. If you are local I can sing at your studio; if you are not in LA, I will sing at a local inexpensive-yet-great studio if you cover the cost for the studio time (appx. $50/hr including engineer, basic mixing, effects if needed, basic pitch-correction if needed, and saved in any format you need.) I usually need no more than half a day to do a very good demo of a producer or songwriter's work.

I CAN do basic (scratch) recordings at home, but anything of quality I have to do in a studio. However, I can do voiceovers that sound very pro from my little home studio, and often get inquiries for these as well.

Come My Way
Cami, 2003

Intro:
One more time
Before I die
I want to see that look in your eyes
One more time
Before the night
Come my way, wrong or right

V1) We never talked much
Never played
Never shared what we should have
We never crossed paths
More than enough
Never held hands
Or whispered of love

Chorus:
But it comes
The waves of desire
And it stays
The flames of this fire
You go away long enough
For me to say
One more time
Come my way

V2) We never joked much
Never cried
Never took the path to “together”
We never told secrets
But never lied
Perhaps we never tried

Chorus

Bridge:
One more time
Before I die
I want to see that look in your eyes
One more time
Before the night
Come my way, wrong or right

V3) If it ends now
Would we say
We never had a chance anyway?
But if we touch
One last time
Would we try
To give ourselves a different life?

Desperately Seeking You

(written by Noel Cohen/Emory Songs, April Start, and Neil Krin; Placed me in "Top 5 Vocalists" at SingerUniverse, Jan. 2005)

V1) Driving in my car in the middle of the night
Trying to clear my head when nothing’s going right
Feeling the cool breeze, blowing on my face
I’m taken far away to that distant place
Where you wait for me

Chorus:
In the dark of night when there’s no more fight
I’m desperately seeking you…ohh
When I feel betrayed and I’ve lost my way
I’m desperately seeking you
Desperately seeking you…ahh

V2) Walking down the street, people rushing everywhere
Nobody stops to think, no one seems to care
It’s hard to stay strong in a world so cruel
When I begin to lose faith, when I don’t know what to do
That’s when I turn to you

Chorus:
In the dark of night when there’s no more fight
I’m desperately seeking you…oh
When I feel betrayed and I’ve lost my way
I’m desperately seeking you
I’m desperately seeking you
When you’ve lost your way
When you feel betrayed
I’m desperately, desperately seeking you
Are we all the same
Do you know my name
Ahhhh…. I’m seeking you…oh

V3) Lying on the ground in the pouring rain
I’m looking to the sky, as the world falls down on me
Trying t’ understand what I cannot see
It makes it hard sometimes, to be-lieve
That you’re here with me….

Chorus:
(I’m desperately seeking you)
When you’ve lost your way
When you feel betrayed
(When you’ve lost your way)
I’m desperately, desperately seeking you
Are we all the same
Do you know my name
(Are we all the same)
I’m desperately seeking you
In the dark of night when there’s no more fight
I’m desperately seeking you…ohh
When I feel betrayed and I’ve lost my way
I’m desperately seeking you
I’m desperately seeking you…ahh.

Not The End - original version

Written By: Cami

1) Where have you gone
Stolen into the night
Tell me your song
Did you put up a fight
Don't have a clue
Why you flew away
Looking for you
And what happened that day

build: Because I still see your face
shining like a morning star
A short saving grace, but gone so fast, so far

Chorus: I don't what what you saw then, but I know where you've been, I don't know who did what when, but I know this is not the end

2) Lies twisted with fear,
someone's not being true
And nothing is clear...
Just what happened to you?
Mother, Father, can't you help at all?
She's your only daughter,
Did you cause this fall?

build: Because I still see your face
shining like a morning star
A short saving grace, but gone so fast, so far

Chorus: I don't what what you saw then, but I know where you've been, I don't know who did what when, but I know this is not the end

Bridge: Will I ever know, when your tale will be unfurled, will you ever show who really stole you from my world?

build: Because I still see your face
shining like a morning star
A short saving grace, but gone so fast, so far

Chorus: I don't what what you saw then, but I know where you've been, I don't know who did what when, but I know this is not the end
