Singer-songwriter Camille Trail travelled from her home in Central Queensland to play at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January, and so impressed the audience when she performed with her producer, Shane Nicholson, during his own show that she was offered a record deal with Compass Bros Records. But anyone who’s heard her debut single, ‘Humming Chain’, would not be surprised about that. Trail has been a musician since the age of eight and has dedicated herself to the craft of singing, playing and songwriting since.
Now Trail is releasing another outstanding single, ‘Devil’s Drink’, which has its premiere on this site today ahead of its official release tomorrow, along with the unforgettable video created by The Filmery. ‘Devil’s Drink’ was also produced by Nicholson. Says Trail, ‘I wrote “Devil’s Drink” around the idea of something following you – whether it’s a person or a fear – and no matter what you do, you just can’t shake it off. I struggle with anxiety so this links in with me dealing with the pressures it brings and trying to shake it all off. I hope the song connects because I feel that the message is universal – in one way or another maybe everyone has something they’re trying to outrun.’
The song is taken from Trail’s forthcoming debut album. Nicholson told the audience in Tamworth that Trail is the only artist he’s ever worked with who paid for a recording by selling a couple of bulls. No doubt it was worth it – for him, for Trail, and for the fans she is steadily gathering.
