Cameron began playing bass in 1995 at the age of 14, around the same time he met Joe P, a high school classmate.  The two quickly became friends and started The Electric Banana, their first of three bands together.  Though distinct, his playing and writing style was unmistakably influenced by Rob DeLeo, and STP covers were a staple in the band’s live shows.

Cameron has played in several projects over the years and currently contributes multiple instruments and vocals to Plaid Nation Revival, a 90’s-era acoustic trio in New York’s Hudson Valley.  He is also a video game music aficionado and records VGM covers with drummer Cameron Chiles in Camicom.

Cameron plays G&L, Ibanez, and Hagstrom basses, through Ampeg and David Eden amplification.
