BIOGRAPHY

Cameron is a 23 year old keys player currently working for Princess Cruises but based in Somerset, England when back on land. He specialises in Rock, Blues, R&B, Funk and Soul music and started playing the keys aged just 8 - he has been passionate about music ever since. After working through the ABRSM classical and Jazz grades, he began studying Music and Music Tech A levels at college. He has since been taught by highly regarded industry professionals such as Brian Henry (Soul II Soul, Mica Paris) and Frank Tontoh (Amy Winehouse, George Michael) at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, where he achieved a 2:1 in Professional Music Performance.

Cameron is currently working for Princess Cruises with party band 'The Sound'. In between contracts, he deps for function bands, does session work and plays with exciting original bands/artists such as The Maitree Express while also finding the time to collaborate with producers like Sudhan Gurung. Cameron has several years’ experience giving piano lessons to people of all ages and playing live.

Cameron has also been busy organising events such as Butleigh Village Free Arts In The Park 2017 and the Maasai Massive 2018. He is part of a non-profit organisation based in Glastonbury called the Pegasus Collective, where the aim is to provide funding for community projects related to music, art, poetry, healing, music and education.

In addition to playing live, Cameron also creates and mixes his own music and has been using software such as Logic Pro 9/10 and Sibelius for several years. He is constantly learning new production techniques and writing new ideas.
