"...Like Cash's recordings, this albums full of 'real' songs. Song, that like Cash's are about twisted characters. People you wouldn't like to meet, in places you wouldn't like to meet them." - Beat Magazine


Cam Ewart’s debut as a solo artist, Here Comes the Blood, is an engaging one, to say the least. Having supported some big hitters in his time, one would assume he has picked up some ideas, hints, and tricks from his peers. His work draws on equal parts rock, country, blues and folk, caring a varied and interesting sound.

Opening up with the title track, "Here Comes the Blood", Cam Ewart has chosen a briskly paced representation of what is to come. Less country oriented than later tracks, "Here Comes the Blood" contains a sticking melody with a blues edge but a dominating, yet sparse, rock presence.

As the album progresses, the tone mellows into a more Country influenced area, with tracks such as "Apologies in Advance", and "Beauty of Distance". The songs feel more self-reflective, with themes of regret and empowerment. These melancholy tones drift into later tracks, such as the slowly paced "Somebody’s Daughter" that seems to mirror the tone of "Godless" by The Dandy Warhols in a relatively pure acoustic guitar composition.

"Lost in the Suburbs" picks the pace up with a thematically similar pursuit as Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs, but more similar in musical tone to a Fred Eaglesmith’s Freight Train. Which, on the topic of trains, is followed by "Railroad Romance" that hugs the outer rim of blues. The song is, expectedly, filled with woe, but a packs a greater punch than previous tracks due to staccato nature of the drumming.

"The Perfect Crime", performed like a whisper in the night, conjures up images of fleeing into the dusk, romanticising the dropping of all responsibilities and connections. It works as a closing note for the album as it swoops in, revealing all its secrets and troubles, and then leaves when finished with you. - The AU Review

And refer to Cam as "...a young Tim Rogers."

As a writer, (he has written two novels), his musical stories combine blues, country and rock, all served on acoustic & electric guitars thru a vintage Yamaha Quad box. Cam chooses to let his music speak for itself, rather than bother adapting to ever changing trends.
