I loved working with Cameron! He was super patient and understood my vision, not to mention that he's very profession! I'm definitely gonna be working with him again in the future. Thank you!
Sought his expertise for a KPOP top line , obvious choice since he has a billboard number 1 with girlgroup ITZY. Lol. So dope sound better has these types of people at hand. He also offered me great insight into the world and why it differs . Again a very solid experience and delivery .
I had cameorn do lyrics , Topline melody and vocals to my track. Worth every last dollar of his $500 to SoundBetter peeps for a full song. I’m gonna produce the hell outta of it , it’s a banger :)
YES from me! No regrets and total quality. Worth the money and more .
Knows a lot and can do a lot! 5. Stars
I had a very large project and was searching for the right person. Cameron was my choice due to his ability to build my song and bring it to life in the way I asked and then additionally was able to deliver the vocals I needed including all backing vocals and harmonies . Not a lot of people can do what he does, spend the money and get quality is my advice.
Thank you Cam. Perfect vocals
Great job. Very easy , will be back!
Cameron is one of the best songwriters and vocalists. He has a beautiful voice and creative ideas all the time. You will never regret working with him. HIGHLY recommended!

Stoked to have found cam. He delivered me a song that for cut ! Can’t ask for much better than that bro.
