Songs & Sounds

It is sometimes difficult to write a biography of someone whom you have known half of your life...

Cameron is a man inspired by the world around him. Mainly the sounds that the ever breathing earth makes day to day. He is the only one who I know that can take a tangible instrument and breath life directly into the soul of it. His mind races with all the peculiar unique sounds that could come from within. Emotions of pain, desire, longing & inspiration fill every passionate note played. Through the music he is alive, safe, destined & determined. If everyone spoke through music than everyone would understand the passion that drives a man to such unfaltering beauty. Every song I here I picture the face he would have made at each particular note. I can see the hands thrusting forward to the down beat. For Cameron, his main passion is music...it doesn't matter if anyone ever hears it..it matters that he made it and was able to dislodge deep, personal emotion. To understand the beautiful rhythmic nature is to understand him on a level that is difficult to reach. To describe I would say...passionate, stubborn, driven, overwhelmed, beautiful, chaotic, vulnerable...you can feel all these things from the notes squeezed from his inner being. If you ask how you could know Cameron, I would say “Here, listen to this..you'll find him here...within the music”. - Emily Davis

Cameron was born in 1975 in Hickory, NC. The son of musical parents, he began an early education in music, learning every bit of information he could about artists, songwriters and every instrument he could get his hands on...
