Camille Bloom performs tonight in Utah.

The craftsmanship of this singer-songwriter has a literary quality — no surprise since she taught high-school English for five years in Washington state before pursuing her acoustic-based music full time. In an interview, Bloom said she loved teaching, especially instructing freshman about The Odyssey, Moby Dick, Romeo and Juliet, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby and The Grapes of Wrath. Keeping in touch with youth is still important to Bloom, who visits schools and youth centers whenever she can to talk about the music industry. Every summer, she also hosts two music camps for youth in Washington. "I feel so connected to the kids," she said of the two-week camps. Being connected with audiences is important to her, too. "There's quite a lot of talking at my shows," she said. "People have said my shows are therapeutic."
