You may have heard one or two of her tracks on a TV show, or seen her in one of her numerous tours, but Friday, Dec. 7 you have the rare opportunity to see the singer/songwriter Camille Bloom in a very intimate setting, and from the trajectory of her career, this may be a rare opportunity.

After establishing herself as a strong local act, Bloom began working on her debut album, living off of credit cards for a year.

"I wish I could say it was a leap of faith - but I was conned out of my job," says Bloom. "I had been playing music for a few years while teaching full time and an investor approached me (with a contract).  But the day we were meeting for her to sign it, she stood me up."  

The former English teacher has since played stages big and small throughout North America and Europe; despite this Bloom remains modest about her achievements, which are numerous. Her songs have been licensed in more than 20 television shows on major network channels, MTV, E! and Oxygen.
