Cami Thompson Biography – the “short” version!

Cami Thompson, a native of Reno and 6th generation Nevadan, has gained a world-wide reputation for wowing audiences with her 4-octave voice of great beauty, control and passion, her zany wit and her humorous interaction with her listeners. Combining elements from her training and background in jazz, pop, rock, R&B, musical theater, and classical music, she moves through whispering to belting out the songs of Gershwin, Ellington, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer, Hoagy Carmichael, Rogers & Hammerstein, Lerner and Loewe, and others with robust honesty and exciting vibrancy. Her style has been called "a delightful mix of Ella Fitzgerald and Bette Midler", and she is often compared to Cleo Laine, Barbra Streisand, Barbara Cook, and Sarah Vaughan. But Cami is an original, gathering fans with her unique charm and talent throughout her 35 years of performing in the US, Europe, and Asia -- in nightclubs, cabarets, cruises, concerts, festivals, and theaters.

Cami began her music education with piano lessons at age 5, and never looked back! She played piano, vibes, marimba, other mallet instruments, and some percussion throughout middle school, high school, and college. But since singing was her first language (before she could even talk), that was where she ended up focusing most of her efforts. Cami began singing in church at age 7, jazz vocal training started at 13, classical training at 17, operatic development at 20 -- alongside classes in theory, composition and arranging, musical theater studies, and working professionally since the age of 17, singing and playing keyboards in pop, rock, funk, soul and R&B bands and soloing with a jazz trio. She soon started working in bands and productions shows, and gave up her plans to be a rocket scientist.

Cami has appeared as Opening Act for the Manhattan Transfer, Nancy Wilson, Dianne Reeves, Lou Rawls, Bob Newhart, Art Blakey, Jon Hendricks, Eddie Jefferson, Ernestine Anderson, and others. She has performed in lead theatrical roles in over 20 musicals in Nevada, California and Washington DC, including “Mame” (Auntie Mame and Agnes Gooch), “Annie Get Your Gun” (Annie Oakley), “Sweeney Todd” (Mrs. Lovett), “JC Superstar” (Mary Magdalene), “Candide” (Old Lady), “Annie” (Miss Hannigan), “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” (Miss Mona), “Follies” (Sally), “Showboat” (Ellie May) and “Girl Crazy” (Kate). She performs with her own bands, from solo piano accompaniment to her jazz trio to her 7-piece swing band "Cami & The Cosmopolitans" to big band -- throughout the Reno-Tahoe area, Bay Area and West Coast. Join her mailing list and you can find her at jazz clubs, concerts, plays, corporate events, charity fundraisers and private parties. She teaches voice privately in her San Francisco studio and her hometown Reno NV.

For almost 10 years, Cami toured the swing jazz festival circuit with trumpeter Mike Vax’s band, and occasionally still performs with his big band, including singing on 2 of their CDs. While singing jazz professionally for 2 years in Europe, Cami sang at the prestigious North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland and the Juan Les Pins Festival du Jazz in France. She returns occasionally to Holland to perform with local bands.

Cami has 6 self-produced albums, has had her music played on National TV shows and radio around the world, has her own songs in a few movies, and has won dozens of awards for her vocal and entertainment skills.

Critics have called Cami's talents "dazzling" and "electric," with "a voice that stands out like diamonds from glitter," while "captivating audiences with a highly charged magnetism." Rollan Melton, former Editor-In-Chief of the Reno Gazette-Journal, wrote that Cami is "among the world's great entertainers". Myrna Daniels of L.A. Jazz Scene says she "projects plenty of personality" with a voice that can be "dramatic, brassy, sassy and lovely." Friend and co-star Toni Tenille says: "Cami probably has more talent than any performer I know. Her voice does things I can only dream of doing. She has incredible stage charisma and timing, and she's got THAT VOICE!" After co-starring with Miss Thompson in "Annie Get Your Gun," veteran Broadway musical actor John Raitt simply said, "Cami is stunning!" The late music critic Jack Neal wrote about Cami: “She's self-effacing in a fun-loving way, with a voice that caresses, scats, soars, and gets way under the skin of every tune she sings.... There's no denying the sincerity of Thompson's matchless articulation and the depth of her seamless shifts of mood in all she sings. Cami Thompson is a first-rate actress with what it takes to touch the soul of a song."
