Cameron Galpin

Born in Colorado, Cameron Galpin spent much of his early childhood traveling around the world with his family. With two British Beatles fans for parents, it isn't surprising that he naturally fell in love with the art of the song. Trapped on various trains planes and automobiles, he had plenty of time to listen. He received his first guitar at 16 and began taking weekly lessons. By 18, he had produced his first full-length album of original material. At 19 he was awarded a scholarship to Berklee College of Music.

Upon arriving at Berklee, Galpin found himself drawn into a network of talented musicians who loved nothing more than sharing their ideas and supporting each other's musical visions. Carving out a style reflecting influences from John Mayer, D'Angelo, and the Band, he set out to record his first EP of more of his original music. By 2010, his 10-piece band finished the EP, complete with a five-piece horn section. Over the past seven semesters, he spent his time studying and playing with great instrumentalists such as Jamie Haddad, Julian Lage, and David Grisman, saturating his style with a mix of jazz, bluegrass, funk, and soul. He currently lives and performs in Boston while completing his degree at Berklee.
