Hailing from Wellesley, Massachusetts, Cam Meekins has been making waves in the music scene. It seems like his skills were a natural gift, as by the time he was 10 years old, he taught his self how to play the drums, piano, and guitar. When Cam got to middle school, he used those talents to begin making beats and producing for local artists. His career as a rapper got a jump start when he began working with Matty Trump, a notable producer in the Boston area. The two wrote and recorded “Just Like You” during their first session together. As Trump and Cam worked together more and more, Cam put out his mixtape, 1993, during the Spring of 2011. The project is what made record labels and key decision-makers in the music industry take notice to the young high school kid with undeniable raw talent.
The next year, in 2012, Cam Meekins was signed to Giant Records/Atlantic Records. While some young artists may get too comfortable with their new found stardom, Cam seems to work even harder. He released his first mixtape under the label, :) :/ :(, in May of 2012 to excellent reviews.
Cam’s journey is only beginning, with his debut album Lamp City dropping on May 21st. It’s not too late to join the bandwagon! Check out his latest video for “Judge” below and get hip to the artist to watch, Cam Meekins.
