This Quebecois band has three phases. First came the psych period under which they were known as Morse Code Transmission and made two psych albums in 71 & 72 sung in English. The second phase saw their names shortened and with the Quebec prog explosion under way decided to switch to French singing. The three albums that followed are real gems of progressive music oscillating between Genesis and Barclay James Harvest but the French texts (sometimes highly impressive) gave them a sound of their own. They disbanded, as the disco wave became a Tsunami in La Belle Province only to reform in 83 to make a best-forgotten English-sung album and again in 95 for a much better one again in French.
Camera Soul continues to thrill fans of jazz-funk and neo-soul with their third stellar studio album, 'Dress Code'! Maria Enrica Lotesoriere, lead vocalist and co-composer of Camera Soul: "To receive the call of the Lombardo Brothers with the request to become the new voice of Camera Soul was like touching the realization of a dream I had always; to make the music that I've always loved [and] to work with some of the best jazz-soul musicians on the Italian scene. It is from this life-long dream, shared with great artists, but especially great souls, that 'Dress Code' was born. We worked hard and long to put in this, our third album, every single part of us, our path, and our maturity. Because the songs are like clothes, tailored for those who compose, but also for the listener. These songs today are our best clothes, those we have chosen to wear. This is our way of dressing the soul of our listeners."
