Multi-instrumentalist and producer, I can help with anything, remote recording, producing, sound design, and mixing/mastering. I plays drums for various bands and I'm well versed in many styles and genres. I work as a sound designer for theater organizations and can develop custom sounds, backing tracks, and presets for live situations.

Cameron Bailey is a musician, composer, and producer currently living in Los Angeles.

Other than his solo project, Cameron also plays in other bands and plays African style percussion for modern dance and yoga classes. He is the drummer and co-producer for electronic-rock duo, I-Exist (www.iexistband.com). Cam has toured extensively in the U.S. with I-Exist, and international tours in South America and Hong Kong with his jazz trio.
Cameron holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Butler University and works as a freelance musician while continuing to play with I-Exist and produce and perform his solo music. He teaches percussion, guitar, and piano lessons in Los Angeles and works as a sound designer and music producer.
