Cam. The simple, three-letter name is bold. And that rings true to the art, and the heart, of one of country's shining new acts. That boldness is evident in nearly every step she takes. Cam backs up that boldness with a firm delivery, embedding her material with a ringing conviction throughout the 11 songs on her Artista Nashville/RCA Records full-length debut, Untamed, produced by Grammy winner Jeff Bhasker (Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, FUN., The Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift) and Tyler Johnson (Ed Sheeran, OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Mikky Ekko).
Whether she's singing about fresh love, broken hearts or difficult personal crossroads, she's clearly living the experience for the three or four minutes she's in it. Actually, she's re-living the experience, because the emotions in every one of her songs come unapologetically from her singular interaction with the world. Co-writing each of the songs on Untamed, she's powerfully vulnerable in "Burning House," fierce and defiant in "Runaway Train," effervescent and carefree in "My Mistake." And the emotions in the material aren't the only thing that separates those titles – every song incorporates a different sonic palette.
While one might rely on polished pop influences and melody, another yields a piano bar feel, one cleverly infuses a bit of Gregorian chant, and yet another uses steel guitar to create a classic-country mood. That wide-ranging artistry is key in Cam's approach. Instead of limiting her choices to make an easily defined product, shes put faith in the uniqueness of her voice, allowing that to be the defining character of a pliable, adventurous musical persona.
