The Vengeful Pigeon

by Cameron Ember

Released 2008
Released 2008
This is down-tempo confessional rock but includes alternative, indie, low-fi, and folk rock genres/influence. Both sad and hopeful, this album was recorded live in the studio with almost no overdubs.
Cameron Ember was born in DC and grew up near the DCHardcore scene. She moved to San Francisco in 1990 and went to art school for 7 years, eventually making music videos as her thesis.

She returned to San Francisco in 1997 and soon finished her first album, Sea Creature. Later bands included Ocean8 and the Embers before she committed to being a solo act, as Cameron Ember.

Her collaboration with Erik Ian Walker was included in the soundtrack to "The Center of the World" and her Ocean8 track was included on a Cleopatra Records compilation called "The Unquiet Grave III.

Cameron Ember is down-tempo, low-fi indie rock in the vein of Low and Red House Painters (her drummer since 1997 is from the latter band). Her vocals and lyrics are both sad and hopeful, sometimes confessional and often (borrowing from the folk tradition) in the voice of other people, either imagined or real.
