Camille Nelson's Album 'Lead Me Home' Debuts on Billboard's Classical Crossover Chart
Camille Nelson, a musician specializing in acoustic-driven folk music, recently released a new album that debuted no. 8 on Billboard Magazine's Classical Crossover Chart. Earlier this week the album, Lead Me Home, also spent time in the New Age category at No. 1 on iTunes and Amazon. This is Camille's first full-length studio album with Stone Angel Music and was released on August 18. Accompanied by a string ensemble with guest artists, Alex Sharpe (formerly of Celtic Woman), her brother Steven Sharp Nelson of The Piano Guys and Ryan Shupe of Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband, Lead Me Home blends elements of folk, classical, bluegrass, and new age music.
"Every single person played an integral part in this collaborative project and it's truly an album close to my heart," said Nelson. "Integrating emotive, reminiscent, and peaceful melodies, I feel this album captures that genuine essence of what it means to be home."
Camille also recently released her latest music video from Lead Me Home, "Nearer My God to Thee." Filmed at Tibble Fork Reservoir in American Fork Canyon, "Nearer My God to Thee" is a serene music video capturing the peace and naturalness of its surroundings. Shot by Elias Jessop, this music video was inspired by everyday people whose answers from the question, "What Brings You Nearer to God?" were captured and included in the video to help others think about what brings them nearer to God.
In 2009, Camille collaborated with Nashville producer Giles Reaves to release her debut album, First Words, under the independent label known as Dimmi Records. Camille later earned a publishing contract for more expansive television and film placement.?Camille signed with Paul Cardall's label, Stone Angel Music in early 2017 and worked with Trevor Price as the engineer and producer of Lead Me Home.
