New Zealand country singer Camille Te Nahu’s soft, velvety voice became highly prized by a raft of Australia’s top recording stars after her arrival there in 1999, before she took centre-stage on albums with her guitarist-producer husband Stuie French.

She had already proved a formidable talent in her own country, winning amateur trophies and appearing on television on her own and with Eddie Low. When one of her prizes included a trip to the Tamworth Country Music Festival, it was enough to convince Camille her future laid across the ditch.
