Camille Jones (born 28 November 1973[1]) is a Danish pop singer, songwriter and record producer. She is known for her song "The Creeps" written by herself and remixed by Dutch DJ Fedde le Grand,[2] which has become a worldwide clubhit in the dance scene.

Career[edit]

Camille Jones was born in Skanderborg, Denmark, grew up in Aarhus, and spent a year as a YFU exchange student in the United States. In 2000 she enjoyed success within the Danish and European music scenes with the release of her début album Camille Jones, which featured the singles Daddy Would Say and Nothing Comes From Nothing.

In 2004 she released her album Surrender, which featured the single The Creeps. The first video - produced by Mikkel Serup - was nominated for a Danish Music Award in 2005.[3] Dutch DJ-producer Fedde le Grand signed the song to his own burgeoning Flamingo Recordings imprint and completed a House remix.[4] In early 2007 the remix had been picked up by radiostations in the UK and all over Europe before it was released on Ministry of Sound in March 2007.[5] Marcus Adams directed a new video for the single. The song had become a hit on the charts and the clubs as well. In the UK The Creeps reached #7 on the Single Charts and #1 on the Dance Charts.

Camille's third album Barking Up The Wrong Tree was released in Scandinavia in 2008 and featured the dance singles Difficult Guys, I Am (What You Want Me To Be) and Get Me Out.[6] Videos for Difficult Guys and I Am (What You Want Me To Be) were produced to promote the record.

In January 2011 Jones collaborated with Kato, Ida Corr and Johnson on the Danish-language dance single Sjus. The song debuted at number 1 on the Danish Single charts.[7]
