"Deroy Murdock"

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. - The National Review

"Craig Havighurst"

A Joyful, Uplifting Sound. - Music City Roots

"Jack Silverman"

This is rare and special music, and unlike anything coming out of Nashville right now. - Nashville Scene

"Peter Cooper"

Ben Cameron possesses two of my favorite new voices. He sings with one and writes with the other. And now he's made an album worthy of praise and envy.

- The Tennessean


Still working on that hot first release.



Fresh a stacked summer of touring and writing and writing and touring, 2014 marked Cameron's first marquee festival appearance with a Sunday set at The Governor's Ball in New York City.

Somewhere among the crisp, harmony laden breezes that whip through Laurel Canyon, the smooth, confessional frequencies of vintage AM radio, and the spiked punch-bowls of a high school prom circa 1986, there
you'll find Ben Cameron's joyful, extreme folk music. 

Says the Nashville-based Cameron, "I'd finally accepted that everyone else's guilty pleasure was what I actually preferred to listen to. So that's the kind of music I make." 

Without affectation or irony, Cameron's lyrical songs mark the juncture where Yacht Rock meets Folk Rock - a unique place where it feels unabashedly good to stick your hand out the car window and sing along.

Having already collaborated with Nashville luminaries Jen Gunderman (The Jayhawks, Sheryl Crow) and Eric Masse (Charlie Worsham, Mikky Ekko), Cameron has teamed up with producer Joe Pisapia (kd lang, Ben Folds) on a new EP set for a spring 2015 release.
