A whole slew of songs from Chicago based artist Cameron McGill

In the last year or so I've written as much about Chicagoan Cameron Mcgill as I have any other artist on Songs:Illinois. Cameron plays MMS on Thursday August 10th at the Upper Room. Here's what I said over the last 12 months edited so it makes some sense in this context:


Thanks to Cameron McGill and his press agent at McClusky and Associates I've had his new record Street Ballads And Murderesques for close to a year. I've been sitting on it (don't worry it's not bent) waiting for there to be a link to purchase it. It's now available so here are my thoughts.

His live show (which impressed the unwashed hordes at CMJ) now features a full band with cello. While Cameron is safely within the walls of the singer-songwriter encampment, his songs, which range from 5-7 minutes, are not your usual folky fare. Verse chorus verse structure apparently doesn't do it for Cameron, so instead he's delved deep into his personal history as well as his own mythology to come up with a sound that of course will continue to be compared to Jeff Buckely and Bob Dylan but rightly should just be his own. Here's a couple from Street Ballads... Which came out in February of `06 and is available now online here and here.

Here's my first post about Cameron originally posted to Songs:Illinois in January of 2005:

I tried and I tried but I just don't get it. The vocal theatrics, hipster chic, and caberet music. It's not my style. Strange then that I like these live songs from Cameron McGill. These were taken from the seventh annual Jeff Buckley tribute show held at Uncommon Ground in Chicago last month.
