Every time I discover an organically talented acoustic Indie singer songwriter I get a little taken aback. With the limited amount of chord progressions, which are archetypally done in Drop D, it’s hard to feel not to feel like you’ve heard it all before. Then you stumble across artists such as Cameron Bates; a UK based artist that proves the genre has so much more to offer.
With his second single release, he’s proven with the right amount of resonance, romanticism and reticent melody then pioneering music can stem out of any genre. There is such poignant ingenuity contained within the lyricism that allows you to get swept up in the emotion which Cameron pensively pours through the mic.
You can check out Cameron Bates’ latest single Whisper on Spotify now along with his film score ‘Essu’ which was his first release on the platform. I wouldn’t be all too surprised if you heard many more compositions from the cinematically stunning emerging artist in the future.
