Camille Thurman is a triple threat – a composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist. A unique interpreter of the jazz tradition, she is a standard bearer for the form, making a considerable and dynamic contribution to the legacy of jazz while paying tribute to its heroes.
She’s been compared to Dexter Gordon and Ella Fitzgerald. She placed third in the Sarah Vaughan Vocal Competition. As a composer she won the Herb Alpert Young Composer award twice and her music was featured at the Kennedy Center’s “Songwriters: The Next Generation.” She is the first woman in 30 years to play and tour with Jazz at the Lincoln Center Orchestra. She’s worked with an incredible array of musicians. She designed “The Haven Hang” advice series to mentor and support young women pursuing careers in music.
“I knew in my heart that my passion was music and I took a leap of faith and I did it,” said Thurman. “My advice to you is if you’re feeling stuck in something that you know is not who you are or what you want to do or want to be, you can make that choice of leaving it and doing something else. Pursue that fire inside you.”
