Born in Bonnie Scotland in a small former fishing port called Alloa on Valentines Day, his professional career was ignited at the age of 7 performing in the stage version of the feature film ‘Bugsy Malone’. At the same age when he wrote his very first song. As a young performer he enjoyed some very ‘Royal’ highlights as featured singer at the televised Queens Jubilee Celebrations. This led to a full scholarship to study at the acclaimed Arts Educational Stage School in London where he graduated with a BA Honors Degree in Musical Theatre. During his time at college Cameron was asked to make an appearance in the famous West End performing in the Rock Musical "BloodBath" as part of the Original cast. Immediately on leaving Arts Ed Cameron was snatched up to work for Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber in the world famous "Starlight Express" directed by Arlene Phillips. He played the lead role of Rusty at the Edinburgh Playhouse as well as the Role of Caboose on the Scandinavian and UK tour of the Show playing for arenas of up to 20,000 people per night. Immediate work followed, working for Cameron Macintosh on the original cast recording of the Musical ‘Just So' as well as song writing and endless session work for Music Producers all over the world. Stage then transferred to Screen in the the hit television show 'THE X FACTOR'. Cameron reached the final 8 groups and the 'Judges Houses' section of the show, where he sang for Simon Cowell at his home. The show peaked audiences of 18 million viewers.
A highlight close to his heart was performing with his sister who is profoundly deaf in a Singing/Signing choir they set up to help able and disabled kids to integrate together through their love of music. His sister is his No.1 fan even though she has never been able to hear him sing!
The bright young star is now a resident of Los Angeles. In amongst his performing work you can find him surfing,song writing, eating haggis and wearing his kilt!
