“ … crafty and contemporary songs with a heavy dose of twang.” The Georgia Straight (Vancouver) - The Georgia Straight


Gin Train - to be released in early 2007


Feeling a bit camera shy


CAMERON LATIMER, one of the principle songwriters in Vancouver’s The Seams, has been writing songs for most of his life. Caught somewhere between the roaring 20's and the future, “Castaway Motel”, the debut album from The Seams offered up a prohibition-era blend of jazz, country and pop hooks and is a perfect snapshot of a songwriter discovering the depth of his creavity. With contemporary influences ranging from Gram Parsons to Wilco, Cameron tells a story that makes you taste the gin, see the smoke curl, and smell the sawdust. Cut from the same cloth as the musical hipsters of the 20’s and 30’s Cameron wears the shoes of today’s working class. Timeless.

Cameron Latimer grew up on Vancouver Island in Ladysmith, the son of self- proclaimed “pirate” and singer songwriter Tony Latimer. His father’s musical legacy including an album produced by Stan Rogers' producer, Paul Mills, influenced the many genres of music that graced the Latimer family turntable. Cameron started playing guitar at 13, eventually going on to study Jazz music at Malaspina College in Nanaimo and it was there that Cameron would create the network that would shape his musical future.

Fast forward to late 2005 and Cameron is nearing the completion of his first solo recording, GIN TRAIN. Recorded in Vancouver by Adam McGhie at Hipposonic studio, the album boasts the talents of Luke Doucet (Veal, Sarah McLachan), Ridley Bent, Jeff Hicks (Colin James), Adam Dobres (The Seams), Dustin Bentall, and Aaron Grant among others.

With an early 2007 release date on some lucky label looming, Cameron will be hitting the road this fall with Ridley Bent in preparation for what is sure to be a busy new year. The Gin Train is leaving the station and it’s time to hop on. All aboard.
