Some artists have a sound to them that you can label. Vocals that lead you to an instant comparison of their music to someone else's. This is not the case with Camden, a singer-songwriter on the cusp of redefining pop music one track at a time. With sonic variations and an eclectic style, Camden offers his listeners a chance to witness what happens when musical innovation challenges classic structure.
In his newly released track titled Friend, Camden addresses the constant battle we face when we're confronted with the decision to end a relationship that has ran its course. Be it platonic or not, Friend describes how we gravitate towards uncertainty and wishful thinking when we remain optimistic about the future of a dead relationship. Expecting more but getting less; Reminiscent of the past but wistful in the present. This song acknowledges how misleading a person's actions can be, leading one to question if that person was ever even a friend.
It goes without saying that a true artist must possess originality and spunk. Not shy of either characteristics, Camden delivers in full with Friend. It's a chilled song you can vibe to in any weather. Don't get me started on the electronic vibes in this one! Camden plays with sound in a way we haven't seen with Pop in Nashville. Friend is approximately four minutes of thought-provoking lyrics that reflects his extensive songwriting background. FYI, his songwriting background extends beyond the nation. He's co-wrote with many international songwriters including those involved in his European Writing Tour. However, his musicality transcends any geographic limitations.
Camden has appeared on Buzzfeed, TLC, The Rolling Stone and VH1. He has performed at a host of local venues such as The End, Rockettown and The Crying Wolf.
