AmeriCamera is the brainchild of T.R Hummer (who published and edited noted poetry collections) and Billy Cioffi, (who performed with Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, the Shirelles, the Turtles...). Their first album "High Minded", released in Octoberr 2011, is an American conversation through its developing tradition, and its ecumenical expression of music we may call Americana.
Be it in its words, in its sounds, or whithin the pictures the songs depict, AmeriCamera rocks! The record features an all-star lineup of guest musicians from the band Billy Cioffi and the Monte Carlos, and a licked production.
« Poetry on an Americana sound blanket (...) the delivery of AmeriCamera make them part of one family. »
Alternate Root Magazine - Nov 2011
"The art of dealing with words and imagery in the poems in these numbers is completely
intertwined with the art of creating music, which still makes for a rather unique result."
Rootstime - Dec 2011
AmeriCamera "(...) reminds us that, even though cultural times have changed, there’s still poetry in music."
