Her new EP titled Believe released in late November of 2018. A combination of cinematic pop and traditional pop, this EP tells a narrative of heartbreak and holding onto hope.

Cameron is also a lobbyist, speaker, and advocate within the rare disease community. Her husband and daughter both have the ultra rare disease Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (aHUS). Her family’s journey has undoubtedly inspired her art and she loves encouraging others with her family’s inspiring story.
When asked to describe herself and her music, Cameron responds, “I’m a woman with an interest in facilitating a connection with things tangible and intangible. It is by design that I write songs that breathe heavy with layers…layers of life and heaven. I write about the heart and the heart breaking. The struggle and the breakthrough.”
She says, “I feel incredibly grateful for the life I’m living right now. Grateful I get to craft music for myself and others. I’m grateful I have a family to love and that each day I wake up is another chance to dream bigger and to fight harder. I’m already blessed and it’s all still unfolding.”
