Camille Thurman, multi-talented saxophonist, flutist, vocalist, composer, and educator, is a young musician emerging on the horizon, acquiring an impressive list of accomplishments that extend well beyond her years. Her lush, velvety, rich, & warm sound on the tenor saxophone has eluded others to compare her sound to the likeness of tenor greats Gene Ammons and Dexter Gordon to name a few.
Camille’s ability to sing 4 octaves and perform vocalese has given her the capability to influence audiences with melodies reminiscent to the sounds of Minnie Riperton, Ella Fitzgerald, and Sarah Vaughan. Camille was a runner up in the 2013 International Sarah Vaughan Vocal Competition and twice won the ASCAP Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composers award. Her quartet performed her compositions in the ASCAP/ Kennedy Center “Songwriters: The Next Generation” showcase and she has appeared on BET’s Black Girls Rock in Kim Burse’s All-Star Band.
