Equal parts country and soul, Camino is in a lane of his own. The Jackson, MS native developed an interest in music at an early age, singing and playing guitar, drums, and piano. He performed on the Warped Tour at 16 years old and knew, despite the odds, that he was destined for greatness. He headed to Atlanta two years later, where he slept on the street for three months before meeting Marcos Rippy and getting his first big break. Rippy was blown away by Camino’s sound and soul and brought him to the studio to record a song for B.o.B. He took Camino into his home for two years and helped develop him, earning him a deal with Akon through Konlive in 2015.
Akon introduced Camino to Polow Da Don, who fell in love with Camino’s record “Riot,” and brought him to DJ Mormile, who signed him to Columbia Records in 2016. Camino has been putting the finishing touches on his debut album, which is slated to drop later this year with legendary musicians Abe Laboriel Jr., who plays drums for Paul McCartney, and Abe Laboriel Sr., who played bass for Michael Jackson. His unique fusion of pop, soul, and folk have earned him comparisons to the modern day Johnny Cash, and he’s been described as a musical lovechild of Mumford and Sons and Adele.
Camino’s music is just like he is: raw, unfiltered, southern, and soulful. His ballads are soul piercing and he freely offers up his talents through his music as therapy to the world. Camino does an unparalleled job of translating his unwavering faith into his records, connecting with and inspiring listeners to do the same.
