Cameron Dawson - Bass Collection Power Bass
Bass Collection & Elites artist, Cameron Dawson, one of the UK's top up-and-coming young bass slingers, has had an amazing year since joining acclaimed brit-soul outfit Mamas Gun in Spring 2013. The 21 year old former student of the Brighton Institute Of Modern Music has appeared with the band to sell-out crowds in Korea, at Indonesia's largest urban music festival, Java Soulnation as well as opening the show for Level 42's on their recent London dates.
And Bass Collection has been with him all the way...
As you can see from these videos, Cam has been using his Power Bass (Islington Blue, with custom Tortoise-shell pickguard) to superb effect on the band's live shows, The Power's funky, low-end snarl and bite perfectly complimenting his effervescent, sinuous and melodic playing... what a sound!!
Live in London, opening for Level 42 @ Indigo2 - London, Sept 2013
Live @ "Java Soulnation" - Jakarta, Indonesia, Oct 2013
Mamas Gun were formed in 2007 by vocalist and songwriter Andy Platts and, over the course of two fine albums ("Routes To Riches" and "The Life & Soul"), their irresistible mix of blue-eyed soul, funky grooves and classic, radio-friendly pop has garnered the band rave reviews and made them a huge act in the Far East.
The band are currently in the studio, completing their new album for a summer 2014 release, where Cameron Dawson has been laying down bass tracks with a trio of Bass Collection instruments... The Power Bass and a pair of Jives - fretted and fretless.
