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.
On his first album, Jumping the Shark, 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. The album was initially released 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. For his second album, Cameron expanded his concept and collaborators, working with Foxygen's Jonathan Rado, Angel Olsen and the Killers' Brandon Flowers on more sketches of outsiders and misfits. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
