Barbara Lehnhoff artistically know as Camilla Sparksss is a Swiss Canadian electro punk dance musician and visual artist. In 2016 she was nominated for the Swiss Music Prize with her post punk band Peter Kernel. She is also co-founder of Swiss independent Label On The Camper Records. Barbara was born at -30 degrees in Kenora, Ontario, a small town on the Great Lakes of Canada. Yes, she had a pet bear as a child and yes her father flew a float plane.

After a series of 7 inch singles, released throughout 2013 she was invited to tour Les Femmes S’en Melent Festival across France. Her first album “For You The Wild” (released in 2014, for her own On The Camper Records) is an instinctive mixture of 80’s dark wave experimental electronic music performed with a lo-fi dancer on stage, “coming from a rock background, with the electronic setup I was missing the physicality of a drummer on stage, so I decided to have a dancer sweat the beats”. “For You The Wild” had her on stage as opening act for Jon Spencer Blues Explosion 2014 European Tour.

In 2019 she released her second album entitled “BRUTAL” (On The Camper Records). An instinctive mixture of experimental, lo-fi electronic pop, and melodic collages of a wide range of genre styles, performed with turntables, fat synthesisers and cutting vocals.  “Brutal” was followed in 2020 with a full remix album entitled “Brutal Remix” containing sixteen remixes by a variety of different artists such as French beat maker Fakear, electro clash artist Rebeka Warrior, American electronic wizard Mike Mare (Dalek) and many more.
