Artist Summary Genres: Folk / Independent / Acoustic/Poetic/FolkRock Artist Bio One VOICE, one GUITAR. Cam Jones is a singer-songwriter, solo-acoustic-electric-rhytmic-folk-rock evolution based in Ottawa, Canada. Built on an assimilation of guitar styles best connected to Ani Difranco and Dave Matthews, Cam's guitar is as much a percussion instrument as it is an accompanying voice in his songs.
