Cameron Blackwood is the powerhouse behind some of the UK’s most successful music moments. Having produced chart-topping albums like George Ezra’s “Staying at Tamara’s” and “Wanted On Voyage”, Frank Carter and the Rattlesnake’s Top 10 Album “Dark Rainbow”, and most recently JP Cooper’s forthcoming third album, he’s one of the UK’s most in demand producer / writers. 

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. He became a trusted part of the Florence and the Machine juggernaut as their front of house sound engineer. 

Transitioning to the studio, Blackwood’s apprenticeship at renowned spots like Mill Hill and Roundhouse Studios became his playground. Learning from industry giants like 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 Coldplay’s “X&Y” album. 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, lightning struck when he teamed up with then-unknown George Ezra, crafting the platinum-selling masterpiece “Wanted On Voyage.” The album’s lead single, “Budapest,” shot to the top of the charts, catapulting both Ezra and Blackwood into the spotlight. 

After a 2015 MPG nomination for Breakthrough Producer of the Year, Blackwood solidified his status as one of the UK’s most in-demand producers. From the Nick Drake-esque majesty of singer/songwriter Eaves‘ debut album, “What Green Feels Like,” to the whimsical Irish musician Gavin James’ debut album ‘Bitter Pill’, his versatility knows no bounds. 

2019 was just as exciting with the huge release of ‘End of Suffering‘ by the mighty Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, produced by Cam. Featuring a Radio 1 ‘Hottest Record’, the single ‘Crowbar’ was a ferocious return to form for one of the UK’s 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’. 

Again 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. Having co-written the hit single ‘Better Half of Me’ for Tom Walker, Cam signed a worldwide publishing agreement with Concord and has built up an impressive catalogue featuring cuts for Frank Carter, Jack Savoretti, George Ezra, Alabama 3, Amy Macdonald, Banners, and Seafret. His relationship with Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes continues to this day, having executive produced and co-written the Top 10 album ‘Dark Rainbow’. 

Beyond his technical skills, Cam is appreciated for his collaborative approach in the studio. He is known to foster a creative and comfortable environment for artists, enabling them to explore and develop their vision effectively. His keen ear for detail and innate understanding of song writing, have made him a highly sought after producer. He is a fiercely creative spirit. His level of musicianship and song writing skills, plus the billions of streams he has under his belt for his production work, means his musical journey has only just begun.
