Steph Cameron Playing Folk Fest
That’s right! With the full lineup announcement happening this week, we are bursting with excitement and decided tell you about another incredible artist playing the festival.
We bet that you are going to start hearing a lot about Steph Cameron over the next year. The Saskatchewan-born, B.C.-based singer-songwriter’s name has been on the lips of many in the music industry since her debut album Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady was released in September 2014.
Steph is a self-taught guitarist who plays with metal banjo fingerpicks. The way her fingers fly across the stings is mesmerizing and sounds mighty fine.
After busking across Canada, hitchhiking with her dog Shelby (the pup pictured on the cover of Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady), Steph headed to Toronto to record. Originally, she planned to lay down one song – this song “Goodbye Molly” – on two-inch tape and ended up coming out with a 13-track debut record.
The inspiration for “Goodbye Molly” came from winters spent taking shelter from the rain in an eight by eight-foot cabin she built in the forest on Vancouver Island. The rhythm of the rain hitting the tin roof became the beat of the song.
