21 year old Cam The Artisan is an eclectic standout breaking through the crowded Atlanta field as one of it’s most refreshing new acts. In a city known for gritty, 808-heavy trap music, Cam The Artisan is forging a path utilizing the lyrical and spiritual, speaking on the highs and lows of early adulthood. The resulting music is a perfect blend of authenticity, introspection, and soulful Hues. Cam's raw emotions have gained him a loyal, expanding fanbase, who often share how his music has helped them navigate some of life’s trickiest moments.
Earlier releases like 2017’s “Swim” and “Vibe Out Lady” helped Cam The Artisan build a regional buzz, but his breakthrough 2018 single “Bliss” launched him globally. The official music video for “Bliss” garnered 15,000+ YouTube views, and the single boasts over a million Spotify streams. Building off of the positive response to “Bliss", Cam released his first full-length project ‘Hues’ in February 2019 with a sold-out release party in Downtown Atlanta.
ARTLMUSIC describes Cam as an artist that “...reaches much deeper into his emotions than most and doesn't express them in uninteresting ways.”
Cam himself agrees, adding"I feel like my music is a solid hybrid of Neo Soul and Hip-Hop, the type where you feel everything. Sonically, it’s almost like a long road trip at night kind of feel. Most of my influences come from André 3000, [Childish] Gambino, J. Cole etc. I put my heart into it, it’s vulnerable yet mysterious and that intertwines so well.”
Since dropping "Hues" Cam has opened for notable acts like Deante' Hitchcock and Mir Fontane, and in August 2019 was selected by Sprite for their "Thirst For Yours" national campaign highlighting the most exciting unsigned acts across the nation. Having recently released a visual for Hues standout “WYA?!”, 2019 marks a major turning point for Cam The Artisan.
