“A joyful, uplifting sound.”
Music City Roots
Ben Cameron's joyful sound merges the classic rock and jam bands he grew up listening to on the East Coast, with the country and folk rock he soaked up during his 14 years in Nashville.
“Ben Cameron possesses two of my favorite new voices. He sings with one and writes with the other.”
He has performed on every coast and a few places in between, with notable appearances at The Governor’s Ball Music Festival in New York City, and The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, CO.
While in Nashville, Ben received praise for his unique brand of literate rock and roll and his two self-released albums, 2010’s Ben Cameron and 2013’s Pas Tout La ("Pah Tu La") featured collaborations with some of the industry’s greatest talents.
“His sound is like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and his voice is like Phil Collins from the Tarzan soundtrack. Two winners.”
Ben’s concept-driven single, I Believe, named as a “2014 Best Song of the Year” by Songpickr, was recorded and mixed by Joe Pisapia (Guster, kdlang, Ben Folds), and brought together some of Nashville’s most soulful players and voices, including:
Ron Eoff (The Band, Levon Helm)
Jimmy Wallace (The Wallflowers, Joe Walsh)
Kevin McKendree (Delbert McClinton)
The McCrary Sisters (Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash)
Bryan Owings (Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris, Justin Townes Earle)
Joe McMahon (Kevin Gordon, Leann Womack, Joel Sonnier)
“[We have] a secret affinity for white boys singing gospel with conviction”
The Deli Nashville
In winter of 2017, Ben and his family left East Nashville for the mountains and are now based in Denver.
“Ben’s amazing. Amazing musician. Amazing singer.”
The Zac Brown Band
When not composing and performing as a solo artist, Ben can be found leading his acoustic power-trio, The Cameroons, with multi-instrumentalist Joe Andrews, from Grammy-winning string band Old Crow Medicine Show, and the percussionist/economist Tom Landstreet. They have been called "The Best Apres-Ski Band In Nashville."
MORE TALK ABOUT BEN CAMERON:
“Cameron’s vocals gently fill the band’s very catchy folk-country-rock tunes and are the perfect instrument for conveying his incredibly intelligent and literate lyrics.”
“This is rare and special music, and unlike anything coming out of Nashville right now.”
