Her guitar has been her faithful and loyal friend for more than 20 years. It’s been with her when she’s opened for Åge Aleksandersen, Lynn Anderson, Frode Alnæs and Edwina Hayes. She’s also had the privilege of performing together with Carlton Moody, Tore Andersen and Ottar “Big Hand” Johansen. “Big Hand” sang his way into her heart when she was just 10 years old. Her biggest role model is Nanci Griffith, who influences her music.

Camilla has released 2 albums. “Blue Roses From Hell” was released in 2006. “Time To Move On” was released in 2008. By recording Ottar Johansen’s “Passion and Trust”, she made the Norsktoppen that year. She made the playlist for NRK and NRK Trøndelag with her song “Silverline”. Songs from her CD “Time To Move On” have also received airplay on BBC Radio in England. Camilla has performed locally numerous times, at private parties, conferences at the Rica Hell Hotel and other concerts, and further afield including London, Leicester and Birmingham in the UK.

In January 2014, Camilla begun working with The Blue Evening Band (Terje Craig, Espen Myrvang, Per-Anders Elvertrø).
