Bio

At just 20 years old Cam Hodges has a lot of musical experience under his belt. Cam knew he was destined for music when he was just 14 years old. Cam’s musical journey has stemmed from unforgettable life experiences, such as a Brazilian exchange student living in his Seattle home. “I wanted to learn how to play guitar because he played really cool Brazilian guitar stuff,” Cam said. “I think that was the beginning of my interest to learn to play the guitar, to make music a passion.” However, performing didn’t always come easy for the budding singer/songwriter. “When I first started singing I was embarrassed to sing in front of anyone so I would record myself on the computer and make my friends listen to it later,” he said. He recalls this being the first time anyone said he had a good voice. A few years later when he was a senior at East Lake High School in Seattle, Cam released his first album titled “If Possible”. The album was recorded with a studio called Rain On Me Productions and was released independently. The album featured original work from Cam along with help of some friends he had grown up playing music with. “The whole "If Possible" experience was incredible for me. It was my first time learning to write, record, and produce an album,” Cam said. “The amount of support, feedback, and responses I received has really inspired me to keep pursuing my dreams as an artist.” While most would think that juggling the demands of school and pursuing a music career would be difficult, Cam thinks otherwise. “If anything being in college makes it easier to be an artist. It’s a community of people I can network with and build support off of,” Cam said.
Cam describes his sound as a soulful/pop/rock collaboration of genres and although he takes his influences from some of the greats such as Eric Clapton, Third Eye Blind, Steve Miller, and Damien Rice; he certainly has a style of his own. “I write music that’s impactful. I want someone to hear my song once and say to themselves, ‘I can’t wait to hear it again,’” Cam said.
Cam describes the music he writes as very melodic and vocally driven. He likes to maintain his style while experimenting with elements of soul, rock, pop, acoustic, electronic, and jazz. His lyrics are honest, sometimes too honest. “I write about how I feel, what is happening, and what I am thinking right in the moment it happens. I have written songs about getting dumped by a girl as she was dumping me,” he recalls. Cam is currently working on writing/recording his debut album as an emerging and professional artist in the music industry. Along with the help of some great people, he is beginning to launch his campaign to become a recognized artist in an industry full of performers. Cam has been hard at work in the studio and can’t wait to share with you some of the new songs he’s been working for in the past year. He is expecting a late summer release of his new EP. He is very grateful for his experiences thus far in the music industry and owes a lot to his fans, friends, family, and ex-girlfriends for keeping him motivated and giving him things to write about.“I’m in music for the long-run and for one goal; to share my music with others; those that will enjoy it.”
