Get to Know - Andrew Cameron

Name: Andrew Cameron.

Where You’re From: I grew up in Killyleagh via a short stint in Ballymena & I’m now based in Belfast. The rest of the band members hail mainly from Belfast, with a couple further out from Ballymena & Coagh.

Describe your style in 5 words or less: Alternative rock honest sadboy lyrics. (I think sadboy counts as one word.)

Digital music, CDs or vinyl? Digital music for handiness, Vinyl for the artwork, CDs for the car. I suppose I just picked all three there, but all have their benefits. (If you want to get really hipster about it, I do now own a couple of cassette tapes too.)

Musician you’d like to collaborate with: Living: Ryan Adams. Dead: Kurt Cobain.

What are you listening to right now: Andy Shauf.

What got you into music? Hard to put my finger on it, but Allison Krauss, Dixie chicks & other assorted country music playing in my parents car as a kid definitely had a part to play!

What was the last band you recommended to someone? Probably Pinegrove, I’m forever banging on about them, or Superorganism.

Favourite Christmas song? Can I put ‘N/A’ for this one?

Most memorable gig experience? When I was 17 years old I went to a We Are Scientists gig in the Nerve centre in Derry with my friend Paul. They were my favourite band at the time & the gig was incredible. We met the venue manager on the way to the show who hooked us up with signed tour itineraries from the band & we met the bassist, Chris. It was a weeknight & we went to school on the train the next day with the biggest buzz!

If you could learn any instrument, what would it be? Clarinet or trumpet.

Song you wish you’d written: ‘Old Friends’ or ‘Aphasia’ by Pinegrove, told you I’m always banging on about them. ‘Yesterday’ by The Beatles too.

Brash Isaac will be performing in Love & Death in Belfast on 29th August 2018. For more information, please click here
