Cameron Hayes is an emerging artist-writer-producer from Berkshire. Cameron has a distinct and versatile style, exploring a range of different genres with her foundation in drum and bass, alternative rock and pop. With a BA(Hons) in Creative Artistry, classically trained from the age of 6 and with nearly 15 years of writing and creating music, Cameron is truly a musician at her core and a veritable force to be reckoned with.

Cameron has a very successful few years under her belt already, gaining over 140,000 TikTok followers (with 3.3 million likes) and a core fanbase of over 80,000 on YouTube, with numerous videos having well over a million views. Cameron released her first EP ‘Medicine’ in 2020, which has gained over half a million streams. Last year she released a re-imagination of Girl in Red’s ‘I Wanna Be Your Girlfriend’, which had gone viral on Cameron’s TikTok 2 years prior. With no editorial play listing, this song has had over 2.5 million streams.
Cameron has written and released some massive Drum and Bass tracks; ‘Devotion’ with Dimension and ‘Enter Night’ with Wilkinson and Sub Focus, which have been played on Radio 1 with nearly 30 million streams combined. With Cameron venturing back into DnB for 2024 and working with some incredible artists, it’s sure to be a very strong year for her.

​2023 was an exceptional first year of live shows for Cameron and her band, playing at festivals such as Boardmasters, Y Not and Secret Garden Party, opening for Placebo to 15,000 people in Munich and a European tour supporting The Beaches at the end of the year. 2024 is set to be even bigger, with Victorious, Tramlines and Truck already announced alongside a headline UK and European tour in November.

​2024 will be a big year of releases for Cameron. Her new single, ‘Spend The Night’ is coming out May 10th, followed by another single in June and her second EP out July 5th. This body of work will show a different sound to what we’ve heard from her before. On this, Cameron said “I’m working on songs that have a bit of a kick to them which really excites me – I’m almost trying to combine the pace and unique feeling of drum and bass, with the grit and power of alternative rock, sort of if The Arctic Monkeys and Lana Del Ray made electronic music..”

Cameron is carving a thrilling career. A bold young voice with a relentless dedication to her craft, hers is a name you will surely hear a lot more of.
