Biography

   Cam Murdoch crafts surrealistic anthems of self-realization and love; taking the golden age of jazz-infused hip hop into the future with buttery beats and astute, contemporary perspective.

   Murdoch’s melodious roots spring from his past as a cellist and guitarist and his musicality suites him well as an emcee / producer. After releasing an array of mixtapes and albums under varying pseudonyms Murdoch finally arrived in his current form; finding his voice in the world's ever evolving playlist as a sage-like seeker of truth.

   Reflecting on his dignified return to his zen roots, Murdoch states “I started out doing some of the same things that I had in the past but none of them were working. I was used to drawing from my sadness, creating as a coping mechanism.” The MC then made a deliberate choice to fulfill his purpose as a positive voice in the wilderness and began to break down his rhyme schemes into more digestible forms. “I think that it’s a common misconception that popular music is mindless” Cam notes. “I think that it requires a special talent to bring substance into such an undemanding art form.”

   I Love Me Too (October 7th, 2015) is the first EP to be released under the Cam Murdoch banner and is a refreshingly honest entry into the current rap eco structure. It is well suited for both heady listening and breezy background vibes, registering well with Murdoch’s self-imposed ordinance to not flood the ears with wordy content. The young emcees ability to express some degree of enlightenment while meeting the listener between their comfort zone and a better life makes I Love Me Too a relevant listen.





Lyrics

Regular Guy

Written By: Cameron Murdoch

[Verse 1: Cameron Murdoch]

One question, the hell is love?
The way that they describe it sounds like I ain't in the club
Well shorty I'm the one, could you be what it comes to?
If not in this life then the next is this the run through?
I hope I ain't going too far. I always end up going too far
That happens when you follow your heart
And this is probably a bad move
But bad could turn good so I'll have to see it through

Get out of your groove and into my zone
Get into my whip, come into my home

[Chorus]

I'm a regular guy, the world around me is not
Why is everything so complicated?
Why you making things so complicated?
Whoa, take it easy

[Verse 2: Cameron Murdoch]

I don't want to go to far
Blame that on my lonesome heart
I might have a taste for you
I can hardly wait for you
My heart got wounds and paper cuts
So I got clean and tapered up
This ain't my scene I'm saving up
For way more green and way more luck
But since you're here and I have not I hope you stay
I hope if I get lost along the way that you still stay
That's all to say that I'm a...

[Chorus]
