Camille Peruto is an Alternative pop vocalist from New Jersey who stole the hearts of her audience. People say, ‘Camille does it ALL! Literally! Not only does she have an amazing voice, but her extensive song selection is perfect to suit any gathering!’ (Nauti Spirits Distillery) and describe her as a dedicated musician and songwriter’ (Morey’s Piers and Beachfront Water Parks).
Today, September 24, Camille Peruto releases her third album ‘Perfect Vision.’ We already got the album preview about a month ago when Camilla released the music video ‘Pretty On The Outside,‘ which appears on the album. It also is her first single since 2019, as when COVID hit, she lost her job as a full-time singer and songwriter. There were no gigs, no meetings, no option for recording. Thankfully now, when everything is coming back to normal, she gifts us not only with one single but the whole album.
‘Pretty On The Outside’ has a very straightforward message to not judge a book for its cover. As Camille says in the song, the girl who walks into the room with a smile on her face puts her worries away, so we don’t see anything she’s going through but notice her beautiful face. While a man, who we believe is highly confident, fights with denial every day.
Camille’s voice in this one already makes us wonder what she will surprise us with on her album. It’s very clear and calm, makes us feel safe, and puts us in a nostalgic mood.
The opening song is ‘Paradise,’ and somehow it reminds me of every love movie for teenagers with a bit of music in it I’ve seen. This kind of movie brings a lot of positive vibes and makes you feel like you want to change your whole life. I think Camilla’s voice would fit perfectly in a movie like ‘The Cinderella Story’ or ‘High School Musical.’ You know the film’s ending when someone realizes how much in love they are and how badly they screwed up, but surprisingly the other half realizes this same thing.
When I close my eyes listening to ‘Paradise’ by Camille Peruto, I can see a beautiful brunette walking through the crowd and sings quietly. I see her memories in the balloons around her like in cartoons. It’s 45 seconds into the song, and that’s when she sees the love of her life. Now she sings, looking into his eyes. It’s a song that gives you good vibes, even though we can argue if the lyrics should be considered happy or sad.
Listening further, we’re slowly going into a bit of bit calmer tone. ‘Lying To Yourself’ makes us stop for a second and think of our life. We could have listened to this song before on YouTube. As Camille says, ‘this is one that everyone can relate to at one point or another!’
The album is closed by a single released around two weeks before the album release. I’m not sure if the song was supposed to be positive or not, but ‘Settle Down Somewhere‘ is the only track from the album that actually makes me sad. It reminds me that nothing is forever and that we don’t have enough time for everything.
I guess it all depends on what are you thought about settling down, but if you’re scared of it, oh boy, what a song to put you in a mood! No one wants to realize that our actions and our time are limited.
I mean, how sad does it sound?
Camille Peruto is indeed a very talented artist. Her voice will sound amazing in every quiet song about love and life. She has a great career ahead of her, and hopefully, soon, more and more people will hear of her. I think she could be a big threat to Taylor Swift or join forces with this artist and record something together. Same vibe, great voices, and lyrics.
