Bobby is one of Canada's great guitarists and his talent is equal to many of the world's great guitarists” - Long John Baldry

BObby CAmeron's ROOTs n' BLUES JOURNEY

Bobby Cameron's musical journey, shaped by the rugged landscapes of Cape Breton and the prairies, reflects a relentless pursuit of his unique musical identity. From the Maritimes to Edmonton, he absorbed influences, honing his craft and winning accolades, notably the MuchMusic Guitar Warz in 1990.

Transitioning from a skilled guitarist to a distinguished songwriter, Cameron's debut album in 1994 marked a turning point, with charting singles and CMT rotation. Subsequent releases showcased his versatility, including his "Emotional Drift" CD that spawned a track called "Coffee Cup", a finalist in the ISC International Songwriting Competition.

Cameron's songwriting prowess attracted attention, leading to collaborations with industry heavyweights and placement in prominent competitions. His work extended beyond solo projects, contributing to Jully Black's Juno-winning album. Awards, including three ARIA awards, SOCAN songwriter of the year, and BMG Platinum Sales, underscore his impact.

Notably, Cameron toured with the late blues icon Long John Baldry for four years as his guitar slinger and shared stages with industry heavyweights, J.J. Cale, Robert Cray, Johnny Winter, Chris De Burg and members Bernard Fowler, Chuck Leavell and Darryl Jones of The Rolling Stones. .His "Comfort Zone" CD with a track called "Sueanna", received acclaim, earning the "Best Blues Song" at the Edmonton Music Awards. Recently, Bobby had the honor of opening for the Canadian superstar Randy Bachman. 

Despite his success, Cameron remains grounded in Edmonton, contributing to the vibrant local music scene. Balancing family and music, he values the journey, embracing gratitude and contentment. Bobby Cameron, like the diverse Canadian landscapes, continues to march to his own, unapologetic beat.
