Having produced both of George Ezras massive Number 1 albums Staying at Tamaras” and Wanted On Voyage,” Cameron Blackwood is one of the UK’s most successful contemporary producer / writers. Nominated for Producer of the Year at the MPG Annual 2020 and 2021 awards, Cam continues to deliver hits for the best of UK talent.  

While studying engineering at university in Glasgow, Blackwood took his first steps onto the music scene by playing with various local indie bands. Keen to develop his expertise as a musician, Cam studied guitar performance and composition at the Musicians Institute and soon gained recognition as a particularly talented session guitarist. He quickly embarked on world tours as guitarist for Brazilian innovators CSS and the famously hedonistic Alabama 3.

Seeking a less nomadic lifestyle, Blackwood began a studio engineering apprentice at Mill Hill, then Roundhouse Studios where he assisted and learned from an eclectic range of producers such as Mike Spencer, Boz Boorer, Danton Supple, Gil Norton, Talvin Singh and Bob Sargeant. He also developed a reputation as a quality mix engineer after working with Tim Deluxe, Mattafix and Adam F, as well as assisting on mix sessions with Danton Supple for ColdplaysX&Y” album.

When the Roundhouse closed in 2007, Blackwood set up on his own and took over the helm at Voltaire Road Studios(previously inhabited by David Gray). Over the next few years he built up an impressive discography, producing and mixing tracks with alternative leaning, progressive thinking bands such as We Are Scientists, CSS, Cee-Lo Green, Alabama 3 and Tom Tyler. His work with London punk trio Brother bought national Radio 1 exposure for the band and himself and soon the major labels were paying attention.

In 2013 Blackwood began working with an unknown singer songwriter recently signed to Columbia. Over the course of three months at his Voltaire Road Studio, Cam and George Ezra produced the multi platinum selling album Wanted On Voyage.” Released in the summer of 2014, the lead single Budapest” exploded internationally with four #1 chart positions in Europe and many more Top 10 entries. The album itself topped the charts in the UK during a 44 week run in the Top 10 as it raced passed a million worldwide sales. As a result, Ezra was nominated for four BRIT Awards that year, including Best British Album and Best British Single.

After a 2015 MPG nomination for Breakthrough Producer of the Year, Blackwood solidified his status as one of the UKs most in demand producers. The work was abundant; from the Nick Drake-esque majesty of singer/songwriter Eavesdebut album, “What Green Feels Like,” to the whimsical Irish musician Gavin Jamesdebut album Bitter Pill’ which topped the Irish LP charts on release and won ‘Song of the Year’ at the Meteor Choice Awards. Other notable production credits for Cam during this time where with Ratboy, Jamie N Commons, Amy Macdonald, British Sea Power and Billie Martin.

2018 brought another massive hit for Cam with George Ezras sophomore release Staying at Tamaras– the biggest selling domestic signed album of 2018. Standout single ‘Shotgun’ raced to the top of European singles charts and has platinum sales in over a dozen countries.

2019 was just as exciting with the huge release of End of Sufferingby the mighty Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, produced by Cam at Voltaire Studios and The Chapel in late 2018. Featuring a Radio1 Hottest Record’, single Crowbar’ is a ferocious return to form for one of the UKs best rock bands. Cam ended the year with his third UK number 1 LP in the form of the stunning Jack Savoretti LP ‘Singing To Strangers’

Over recent years Cam has focused on songwriting. Having cowritten the hit single Better Half of Mefor Tom Walker, Cam signed a worldwide publishing agreement with Concord and has over the last few years built up an impressive catalogue featuring cuts for Frank Carter, Jack Savoretti, George Ezra, Alabama 3, Amy Macdonald and Kawala. During 2022 Cam has co written and produced multiple tracks across forthcoming LP releases for UK folk rockers Seafret and the uber talented Banners.
