Camille Howard (March 29, 1914 – March 10, 1993) was an American R&B pianist and singer.
Howard was born in Galveston, Texas. When in California in the 1940s, she became the featured piano player with Roy Milton’s Solid Senders, playing on all their early hits on the Juke Box and later the Specialty record label, including "R. M. Blues" (1946).
After that record's success, she featured on more of Milton’s records, occasionally as singer. Record label head Art Rupe also began recording her as a solo artiste, with her biggest hit coming with "X-Temporaneous Boogie".
She continued to record successfully in the early 1950s, but the growth of rock and roll and her own religious convictions ended her career.
Howard died in Los Angeles in March 1993.
