Holding Pattern, written by Shane Nicholson with Matt Benbrook and Amy Lawton on a writing trip to London in 2019, brings together for the first time Queenslanders Camille Trail and Brad Butcher.
“Holding Pattern is a song I wrote in London with
“I first met Brad in about 2018 when I was at Uni in Brisbane,” recalls Camille “We wrote a song together and I subsequently grew to love his music. We’ve come to know each other more now that I’m working in the music industry and we don’t live far from each other. I was completely stoked when he agreed to sing Holding Pattern with me”.
Camille has earned accolades far and wide for a sultry melting pot of country, folk, blues and gospel, and Brad is a highly regarded Australian troubadour. They both live near Rockhampton and share a love of roots music. They’d been toying with the idea of touring together for a while, and when Camille heard Shane’s demo of Holding Pattern she immediately knew who she wanted to sing it with.
