Doug Cameron Bio
Doug Cameron has long been a favorite on radio internationally. Widely considered one of the true innovators of alternative styles for strings, he has performed internationally, and is well known for his dynamic performance and trademark blue electric violin. Cameron has ten CD’s to his credit, which feature many of his own compositions. Although many of his releases are jazz oriented, Cameron is capable of moving seamlessly into many different styles of music adding many dimensions to his performing (he’s even been called “a jazzy, electrified Andre Reiu because of his highly entertaining performing). His widely acclaimed Celtic release, Celtic Crossroads was widely acclaimed and includes production from renowned producer David Foster. A veteran of the Los Angeles studio Scene, he has recorded and performed with a wide range of artists, including George Benson, Doc Severinsen, Tom Petty, Cher, The Allman Brothers, Dionne Warwick, Tony Bennett, Kansas, Paul Stookey (Peter, Paul & Mary), David Foster as well as recording for numerous motion pictures and commercials. A consummate arranger and composer as well, Cameron is able to perform with multiple configurations from a trio, to a trio with a horn section to a full symphony orchestra. Cameron’s symphony program has received wide acclaim and he also offers an inspiring Christmas Program with symphony orchestra called “Spontaneous Christmas”. His Spontaneous Christmas CD went to #1 on jazz radio over the Christmas Season.
Cameron has been exposed to the music and entertainment industry from a very young age. In the golden days of live radio, his mother, singer-songwriter Barbara Cameron had her own radio show on WLW in Cincinnati where she replaced Doris Day and often sang with Rosemary Clooney and The Clooney Sisters. She is best known however for writing and singing The Road Runner cartoon theme and is featured on Different Hats in a jazz arrangement of the tune. Now it has come full circle as both of Doug’s immensely talented boys, Alex and Sean, ages 11 and 8, are playing the violin and performing with him in a family program, which has been a smash with audiences.
One of Doug’s focuses has been working with young musicians in an inspirational master class/workshop environment. Cameron has two instructional series out for the violin, including his latest, “Swing Your Strings” distributed by Alfred Music and endorsed by The International Suzuki Association. “Working with young musicians has truly been some of the most satisfying work I’ve ever done. I believe it is more important than ever that young people become exposed and involved in music. Music is a gift that I am grateful to have in my life, and it’s my hope to be able to share it with as many young people as possible.”
