Local CD Reviews

His name is Cameron Martin Cochran. He is soft-spoken, and his voice is calm and reassuring. Although his music gives off a somber tone, he remains quite hopeful. The influence of all the great folk artists are heard in his songs, most recognizably, Bruce Springsteen.

Those were the first thoughts that ran through my head, when I heard Cameron Martin Cochran's first EP, "The Cycle of Life Death." Although it's only a collection of five songs, these songs are very impressive for a first release, especially for a young man in his mid-20's.

Several years ago I stumbled upon his website, where I found a collection of all of his albums and EP's, which even offers up free downloads. If you're looking for the latest news on Cam, you won't find it on his website, as it hasn't been updated in several years.

Cochran has also played in and with a number of bands and artists in the Cincinnati area including The Sheds, The Lions Rampant, Over the Rhine, The Light Wires, Jake Speed and the Freddies, Kim Taylor and Ryan Adcock.

I have heard word that Cam is currently working on a new, solo album. You may have to dig deep one day to find it. Just remember his name.
