Atlanta rapper/singer Cameron James Williams, professionally known as Cam James, is a self-made storyteller that redefines “do it yourself”. Born into a military family (his father was a Chief Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force, his mother is retired military and an HR professional) that changed locations often, he settled in Orlando, FL after bouncing around the U.S. and UK. He was influenced musically by Nas, OutKast and 90's R&B - using that foundation to build his own unique sound. After moving to Atlanta to attend Georgia Tech in 2008, he started turning his poems and spoken word performances into songs in 2011 with the campus group NotThoseKids as The Concept. He appeared in several campus-centric collaborative music videos with the group. These rough, unpolished songs and sessions became cohesive solo projects after his graduation in December 2012.
Cam has released three independent mixtapes (Broken Records Vol I & II, Orange Soda: The 90s EP), three solo EPs and two studio albums. His solo EPs, No Role Models & No Applause, are exclusively produced by Remot, who he met on Facebook in 2014.
Since then, Cam has made appearances on major stages, including selections for national music festivals (2016 A3C Festival, 2017 SXSW Music & Arts Festival), international broadcast television placements (BET, Being Mary Jane), commercial commissions and critical praise (The Source, 2017).
He released his independent sophomore album, leviTAPE, in December 2017. He recently starred in a global tourism ad campaign for Visit The USA, and is currently directing feature-length original music videos while working on new music.

WHat makes me Different?
I make hard-hitting, engaging songs blending lyrical rap with R&B influences, using my sense of humor and layered metaphors to deliver potent messages. While the love-oriented content sets me apart, my voice and lyricism is what makes the music truly unforgettable. At least, that's what my fans tell me.
