Cameron Mizell displays his sentimental charm out in the open with a gracefully cinematic sound

Cameron Mizell

Cameron Mizell resides in Brooklyn and constantly goes out in the wild arenas to perform various forms of music. His live acts have included Broadway musicals and dance companies where he has performed in jazz ensembles, bluegrass acts and rock bands.

His ear is that of an highly educated musician who has intellectually refined himself over the years, constantly growing with each piece he puts out for the world to appreciate.

"Cameron reminds us of Simon & Garfunkel, with John Fahey's smoothness with the strings and Philip Glass's maturity in pulling out the soul in the form. But it is limiting on our end to only compare him to the greats, because he does belong in a league of his own in many ways."

His new album 'The Tree on Saffron Path' marks his 11th release which is an astounding feat of its own. The LP is driven mostly through its use of strings and effectively at that. It starts out soothingly, as if autumn were showing its wings right near our very own eyes and the sound of the flapping of those wings were gliding in our ears. This continues what pans out as an effective journey through the world Cameron first draws a rough sketch of, then moves over to his canvas and starts painting in the listener's minds. It is a spectacular ability of his which one cannot overlook. The LP can work perfectly as a movie score, and some cinephiles might also have a ball at visualising some of their favourite movies (mostly the ones shot on film) while listening to this masterpiece. From time to time, Cameron also utilises the electric guitar, which as sparing as its used provides a sense of anticipation along with a palpable sense of modulation in the record.

There is also the harmonious sound of the violin which drives the whole piece forward. As you could picture, each and every element of this album works beautifully in synchronisation with each other. The result is what a truly moving piece leaves you with, speechlessness.

Give this album a listen if you adore folk as a genre. Sounds of the vibrant times when there was conflict but relief in the form of art that would heal like Mr. Rogers' words would to children and adults alike. Cameron has done an incredible job at combining this innocence with some striking realities.
