When Tasmanian guitar wiz Stuie French was touring Australia with Merle Haggard in 1996 did he see a sign foretelling that in years to come he would fall in love with a Maori woman who sang like an angel and they would end up making beautiful music, and a family, together? 

When Camille Te Nahu arrived in Australia in 1999 her vocal talents were immediately recognised by Kasey Chambers and Beccy Cole who employed her as their backing singer both on the road and in the studio. Over the years, Camille and Stuie released their own albums – Stuie with the Feral Swing Katz and Camille’s solo album (Camille Te Nahu), and their paths would often cross as they both toured with Australian country stars (Troy Cassar Daly and Gina Jeffreys).  But it wasn’t until 2002 when their stars aligned and they fell in love.

At the 2017 Tamworth Golden Guitar Awards, Stuie won a Golden Guitar award for Instrumental of the Year.  In 2013, Camille and Stuie won their first Golden Guitar Award together for “Best Alternative Country Album of the Year”. 

Camille and Stuie have also had two of their songs (Gone for all money and Pretty Katalina) featured on the hugely popular, new Channel 7 drama “A Place to Call Home”.  Camille also featured on New Zealand television this year with a full episode of her musical life on “Unsung Heroes of Maori Music”.

Stuie is a master of the country/jazz guitar-style (Les Paul invited him up to play in New York), and his smooth voice harks back to the days of Tommy Duncan singing with Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys – no pretense or exaggeration. Stuie always has a band that can create the perfect bed for Camille’s gentle, velvet voice.  She sounds like no other singer with a style that is effortless, a sound that is rich, deep and very easy on the ear.

Camille and Stuie are truly a musical marriage made in heaven and their latest album Tahi is a must-have collection of beautiful moments shared together and with their young son Sonny.
