Berklee Summer in the CityCameron Galpin
Born in Colorado, Cameron Galpin spent much of his early childhood traveling around the world with his family. With two English 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 sixteen and began taking weekly lessons. By eighteen he had produced his first full-length album of original material. At nineteen he was awarded a scholarship to Berklee. 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 original music. By 2010, the ten-piece band had 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.
