What: Indie Rock
Where: Maple Ridge, BC
Not many artists can incorporate influences ranging from Mac DeMarco to Mac Miller and have it sound so effortlessly cohesive, but therein lies one of the most compelling parts of Cam Blake’s music. Despite his relative youth, the Maple Ridge, BC-based wunderkind weaves everything from rap to R&B to indie, alternative, and psychedelic rock into a sonic world that’s all his own.
Look on further than his most recent single, “Losing My Mind,” for proof. The track, which has already been picked up by major stations out west and hit number eight on Reverbnation’s Canadian indie charts, boasts a maturity and masterful execution beyond Blake’s years. It makes sense considering he’s been writing and performing since the age of eight, delving into different genres and musical settings over the years and obviously picking up plenty of tricks along the way. He also has an eye for the visual – check out the stylish and fun vid for “Losing My Mind,” directed by Raunie Mae Baker (Ludic, Leisure Club). We’re looking forward to what’s next.
