Entertainer. Showman. Shaman. Cameron et son associé / saxophoniste Roy Molloy sont sur la route pour un nouveau live festif et exultant. Décrit par Clash Magazine comme le songwriter le plus lettré de Sydney, Cameron sait ce qu’il fait et les mastodontes de l’industrie musicale en prennent note. A tel point que Jonathan Rado du groupe Foxygen a décrit le premier concert de Cameron auquel il ait assisté comme « le plus mémorable et émouvant concert dont il ait été témoin ». L’icône de la musique Henry Rollins le décrit comme « tout droit sorti d’un cauchemar de David Lynch! ».

Son dernier album « Forced Witness » est sorti en septembre 2017.

English

With Forced Witness, Cameron’s solution to the difficulties we face is a danceable and dangerous earnestness, a sense of honesty that heals and relieves even as it cleaves us or makes us laugh in self-defense. He’s offering portraits of misfits’ views of the world, presented without illusion. Recorded in Berlin in an old East German radio station, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, and produced by Cameron along with Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado, these tracks at first seem shamelessly entertaining, the driving rhythms and rousing melodies embellished at every turn by Molloy’s warm hornwork.

If there is darkness in these songs, it is not because taboos can titillate but because Cameron knows that confession has a redeeming power and that people are often at their most vivid when their skies have fallen. These songs are alive with the rich detail of life lived and the radical distinctiveness of the stories they tell feel universal. In these chaotic times when we aren’t able to look away, Cameron is offering us a pure account of the world as he’s seen it.
