BIOGRAPHY
Doug Cameron has long been a favorite on jazz radio internationally. Widely considered one of the true innovators of jazz violin, He has performed internationally, and is well known for his dynamic performance and trademark blue electric violin. Cameron has ten CD’s to his credit, which feature many of his own compositions. A veteran of the Los Angeles studio Scene, he has recorded and performed with a wide range of artists, including George Benson, Doc Severinsen, Tom Petty, Cher, The Allman Brothers, Dionne Warwick, Tony Bennett as well as recording for numerous motion pictures and commercials. Cameron keeps busy with his recording schedule which includes an album every year or so. He has also been appearing regularly as a guest soloist with symphony orchestra in a unique pops program featuring all of his own arrangements. His "Spontaneous Christmas" program is also a proven success as a symphonic offering.
Cameron’s CD’s feature many jazz luminaries, including David Benoit, Lee Ritenour, Boney James, Gerald Albright, Joe Sample, and Russell Ferrante from “The Yellowjackets” His latest project, Different Hats is a two CD collection, which contains tracks from each of his previous seven releases, as well an eclectic mix of new material. His previous release, Celtic Crossroads-The Uncharted Path was a unique departure from his other recordings, mixing Cameron’s trademark jazz style with Celtic music. Crossroads also featured “John Jr.”, an original composition produced by multi-Grammy award winning producer David Foster.
Cameron has been exposed to the music and entertainment industry from a very young age. In the golden days of live radio, his mother, singer-songwriter Barbara Cameron had her own radio show on WLW in Cincinnati where she replaced Doris Day and often sang with Rosemary Clooney and The Clooney Sisters. She is best known however for writing and singing The Road Runner cartoon theme and is featured on Different Hats in a jazz arrangement of the tune.
One of Doug’s focuses has been working with young musicians in an inspirational master class/workshop environment. "This has truly been some of the most satisfying work I've ever done. I believe it is more important than ever that young people become exposed and involved in music. Music is a gift that I am grateful to have in my life, and it’s my hope to be able to share it with as many young people as possible.” Cameron has recently released his second instructional series for the violin entitled “Swing your Strings”. In this series Doug takes well recognized Suzuki pieces and adds jazz, hip hop, Celtic, country, gospel, reggae and other styles. The project has been endorsed by The International Suzuki Association, and is being distributed by Alfred Music.

REVIEWS
"Doug’s program works so well in a pops series because it reaches such a broad audience. Your long standing traditional symphony goers will love it, young people will love it, people who have never been to symphony concert will love it. It’s an nice mix of different styles. He’s the first artist we actually invited back to Fort Smith .."
— Maestro John Jeter, Fort Smith Symphony
"I believe the whole community has a whole different feeling toward this orchestra as a result [of Doug Cameron], because we brought something special to this community."
— Maestro Janita Hauk, Charlotte Symphony
"No one can convince me that they could have put any more talent on stage in New York than the talent that performed right here in Bismarck this Saturday night with Doug Cameron and The Bismarck-Mandan Symphony."
