The Saskatoon-based roots singer/songwriter arrived on the scene like a bracing gust of fresh musical air with her 2014 debut record Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady receiving unanimously enthusiastic reviews.
“This is a monumental, brilliant album… heralds the crowning of a bright new talent,” declared Pop Matters in calling it the #1 Canadian album of 2014.
No Depression termed it “a stunning debut,” while Exclaim! noted that “Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady delights from start to finish. Steph Cameron is the real deal.” The record also made the coveted Longlist for the prestigious Polaris Prize in 2015.
If the debut felt as if it emerged fully-formed from the bohemian streets of Greenwich Village circa 1963, then the extra maturity of Daybreak gives it more of an early ‘70s Laurel or Topanga Canyon atmosphere.
Steph notes that “some songs are influenced by the political context of our everyday lives.” She describes “Daybreak Over Jackson Street” as a song “about living in an impoverished neighbourhood in an urban setting. That song acknowledges some of the elements of life in a slum.”
The enthusiastic response to Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady led Steph into extensive touring, playing the folk festival circuit and, memorably, opening up for Buffy Sainte-Marie. Prior to her debut album, Cameron’s performing background was primarily in busking.
There is daybreak over Steph Cameron’s musical career, and a bright and shining future surely lies ahead. Stay tuned.
