Camille and Stuie

When 2017 Golden Guitar Winner (Instrumental of the Year) guitar wiz Stuie French was touring Australia with Merle Haggardin 1996 did he see a sign foretelling that in years to come he would fall in love with a Maori woman who sang like an angel and they would end up making beautiful music, and a family, together?  


Their most recent album “Tahi” (released September 2016) is a collection of originals and cover songs and their 9 year old son, Sonny also features on the album.  Also during that month, Tommy Emmanuel invited Stuie to be a tutor at his “Tommy Emmanuel Guitar Camp Australia”.  Tommy also invited Camille and Stuie to perform as guests at the annual CAAS (Chet Atkins Appreciation Society) Festival in Nashville in 2014.  They had three well received shows, and then were invited to sing with The Time Jumpers and a duet with Vince Gill during their weekly set at the 3rdand Lindsley.  That year Camille and Stuie also won the Frank Ifield International Spur Award.  


Camille and Stuie have three children but together with their son “Sonny” will be performing as The French Family.  Sonny is 12 years old and plays guitar and sings.  He released an album in 2013 called “Seven” and was a feature artist in the NSW Schools Spectacular the following year.  Recently Sonny appeared on the National Television Show “Little Big Shots”. 


At the 2013 Tamworth Golden Guitar Awards, Camille and Stuie won their first Golden Guitar Awardtogether for “Best Alternative Country Album of the Year”. In March 2014 they were awarded the Frank Ifield International Spur Award.


Camille and Stuie have also had two of their songs (Gone for all money and Pretty Katalina) featured on the hugely popular, new Channel 7 drama “A Place to Call Home”.  Camille also featured on New Zealand television this year with a full episode of her musical life on “Unsung Heroes of Maori Music”.


Stuie is a master of the country/jazz guitar-style (Les Paul invited him up to play in New York), and his smooth voice harks back to the days of Tommy Duncan singing with Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys – no pretense or exaggeration. Stuie always has a band that can create the perfect bed for Camille’s gentle, velvet voice.  She sounds like no other singer with a style that is effortless, a sound that is rich, deep and very easy on the ear. 


Camille and Stuie are truly a musical marriage made in heaven and their latest album Tahi is a must-have collection of beautiful moments shared together and with their young son Sonny.
