A Glasgow moon

For a while there was a company called HELLO MUSIC

They no longer exist but while they did they welcomed songs and reviewed them very promptly

 Below is most of their very welcome response to the song MR MOON which can be heard at the foot of the page

Hi Sheila, 

As promised, here's your entry as Hello Music Song Of The Day.  So far, this is just an internal contest showcasing the best music we've heard in the Hello

Music system, but I thought you might like to see it.  We love your music and hope to bring you more opportunities.   

In fact, we'd like to put "Mr. Moon" on our Delta Airlines radio station.  Hello Music Director of Artist Relations, Heather (cc'd above) will be contacting

you with more details on that one. 

I've also looped in Greg, our head of A&R, who wrote the description below.  We're all fans.

Artist: Sheila K. Cameron 

Song: Mr. Moon 

Genre: Pop – cabaret, easy listening, blues 

Location: Glasgow, Scotland

Description: Scottish poet-songwriter pretty much takes your breath away in the first couple bars of “Mr. Moon” with a gentle cabaret blues; the easy

swing, spare arrangement and especially Cameron’s enchanting and haunted alto are pretty much impossible to deny. Add to that the story behind her

lyrics – the song was inspired by a neighbor’s World War II story of scraping a friend’s corpse out of an exploded tank under the moonlight, using a shovel

– and you have a song that you’ll carry with you for quite a while. Meanwhile, there’s precious little information about her on the Internet, but “Mr.

Moon” has gotten some plays on Iain Anderson’s BBC Radio Scotland singer-songwriters program. Enough plays, in fact, that he’s nicknamed her simply
