Published Sep 04, 2014Described as having "an undeniably retro feel," British Columbia folksinger Steph Cameron is indeed an old soul. From living in small cabins she built herself for the last several years, to having her music recorded to tape here in Toronto, these characteristics flourish in her stripped-down, honest folk material.
Cameron joined us at the Exclaim! office for an acoustic performance of "Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady," taken from her upcoming record of the same name.
Alone with her instrument in the clip, Cameron demonstrates her intricate finger picking skills over the course of the delicate title track's duration. Her voice glides over top of the crisp guitar playing sweetly and smoothly, while delivering evocative lyrics with a storytelling sensibility that has some equating her writing to the likes of Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell.
Watch the performance now in the player below.
