Also known as a member of the Sydney, Australia electronic act Seekae, Alex Cameron made a name for himself as a high-concept singer/songwriter. Cameron crafted the persona of a show biz hack -- also named Alex Cameron -- as a vehicle for his wry electro-pop songs about hope and failure. He initially released his debut album, Jumping the Shark, as a free download on his retro-looking website in 2013, and Siberia Records issued the album on LP in 2014. Tours with Mac DeMarco, Kevin Morby, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and Foxygen raised Cameron's profile, and Secretly Canadian gave Jumping the Shark a wider release in 2016.
Described by Clash Magazine as ‘Sydney’s most literate song writer’, Cameron knows what he is doing, and the creative juggernauts of the international music industry are taking notice. So much so that Jonathan Rado of Foxygen described the first Cameron performance he saw as ‘one of the most memorable, moving concerts I have or will ever witness’, and music icon Henry Rollins described Cameron as being ‘right out of a David Lynch hell dream!’
