About This Episode

In today’s podcast we marvel at the awesome bass playing of Cameron Dawson.

Mamas Gun are a London-based five-piece that’s been gathering critical acclaim and an international audience since 2008. Cameron Dawson took up bass duties in 2012 and has been at the heart of the band’s dazzling pop and wicked grooves ever since. Commitments with Mamas Gun have taken up most of Cameron’s time for the past few years, but he’s still found time to finish a university degree, play numerous sessions, as well as write stacks of material for his experimental jazz group, Vels Trio, who’s new album, Yellow Ochre, has just been released.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • How Cameron got the gig with Mamas Gun.
  • All about his love for Fender P-Basses.
  • How he balanced gigging with finishing University.
  • What he learned from Skype lessons with Sharay Reed.
  • And much, much more…
