Ground breaking artist Cam Cole stopped by to speak about his latest album ‘Crooked Hill’


Blend raw energy, deliciously gravely vocals with the grind of live electric guitars and you’ve got British rock one-man band Cam Cole, serving up his own breed of hard-hitting rock with new album ‘Crooked Hill’ which dropped July 30th, featuring leading single ‘Message In The Mountains’. Reminiscent of the likes of Royal Blood and Rage Against The Machine, Cam Cole provides an escape from the mundane, his heavy and ferocious sound fits well in a time where people are looking to finally release all that pent-up energy, and Cam is just the right man for the job.

Introduce yourself in less than 10 words…..

New Age traveller, rocker, biker, anarchist, pagan, musician.

What made you want to get into music?

Hearing heavy rock music I guess. It just gets in me and makes me wanna liberate myself, I wanna do that for myself and others.

What’s the writing process?

Generally I spend many hours a night coming up with riffs which then I go through and find the best ones to put lyrics to. After that I find the sickest beats to back them up. Then I’ll play them to my manager/producer and he’ll give me his opinion, from there it’ll either be tweaked further until it sits right or we just leave it as it is.

How do you transfer that onstage energy to the studio?

It’s a hard one for me as I’m a live artist but I’ll just play the tunes until the magic take is recorded, or not unfortunately as it is with some tunes.

What come first lyrics or music?


What was the last track you played on Spotify?

Just now I was listening to Electric Wizard – Funeralopolis

What would be on your rider?

Beers. I’m easy to please there.

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

I would get rid of mainstream commercial labels and musicians, talent shows and other knobheads desperately trying to sell you their shit but know nothing about music and are in the business for the wrong reasons.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

In music? To listen. Use your ears. Don’t rationalise it.

What other bands do we need to be checking out right now?

Firebreather for some great doom rock, Steak for superb stoner riffs, and Nat Myers for bringing back delta old school finger picking blues.
