After training at the conservatory, Camille Bertault obtains a classical piano prize, and studies opera, theatre and dance at the conservatory of Nice. At the age of 20, she writes, edits and performs in plays for children. Inspired by a father who loves jazz, she studies vocal jazz and improvisation at the Conservatoire de Paris. In 2016, She is spotted by a New York label, Sunnyside Records, which distributes her first album «En vie» and makes her discover the New York jazz scene. There she meet Dan Tepfer, Michael Leonhart, Jeff Ballard, and Joe Sanders with whom, under Sony France, she records her second album in 2018, «Pas de Géant», which receives superb press . Camille then tours around the world and releases her 3rd album, « Le tigre » at Sony in 2020. She is currently working on her new album with ACT which will be released in 2022.
