Canada is providing us with so many amazing female country artists lately it seems… Lindsay Ell and Tenille Townes being just two examples… and the latest to hit my radar is this 20 year old singer/songwriter hailing from Abbotsford, BC.
Listening to Cambree Lovesy’s 2018 debut album “Kiss My Boots” (what a great title too!!) her love of the traditional country artists who have inspired her is immediately obvious, although her music definitely has a contemporary twist too (she’s a fan of modern country trailblazers such as Kacey Musgraves and Maren Morris) which should give it a wide appeal among country music fans in general . Recorded while she was still studying as well as holding down several jobs, her passion for her music and her work ethic is definitely to be applauded.
She performs regularly throughout Western Canada together with her high energy backing band and has been making music for several years already, with her previous singles releases being played on Canadian country radio and seeing comparisons drawn between her and Taylor Swift. But she aimed to bring a bit more of the “old school” country sound to this album… a homage to the likes of Reba, Patsy and Dolly, with more fiddle and banjo in the mix this time round… in fact I have heard her speak of how the title track is her tribute to 9-5, it’s definitely a really fun, gal power song !
All that Cambree has already achieved is even more impressive given that she was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder in 2015, she had struggled with opening up to people while growing up and turned to writing music as an outlet for expression. As a result her songs often reflect milestones in her personal life. Today she looks to inspire young people to find beauty in being who they are and to pursue their passions.
Look out for our interview with this exciting and talented artist coming soon… when among other things we’ll be asking about her recent trip to Nashville and the new music she has on the way ( the two may just be related
