PLA Media is thrilled to announce the addition of Oklahoma-based country artist Cam Allen to their roster.
Singer-songwriter Cam Allen first burst onto the country music scene through a video of him performing that went viral on Twitter. It was not long until the talented musician earned a spot on season 19 of American Idol (March 2021), where he caught the eyes and ears of many in the country music industry and Idol fans.
Cam and his band of Oklahoma and Texas musicians have shared the stage alongside top country artists, including Dustin Lynch, Randy Rogers, Chris Cagle, Corey Kent and Mike Ryan. Connecting with fans at festivals like Calf-Fry Festival 2022 and SWOSUpalooza 2022, his distinct voice resonates throughout his thoughtfully blended Western country melodies fused with the Nashville sound.
“I’ve had a great track record working with Oklahoma crooners. Cam’s edgy vocals and Marc Cohn/Chris Stapleton vibe fits perfectly on the current music scene and summertime playlists,” says Pam Lewis, FRSA, Founder and President at PLA Media.
Cam recently released his summer smash Lake Days on GOAT Music Group with a music video for single that just premiered on The Heartland Network this week.
About Cam Allen
Cam Allen and his band of musicians from Oklahoma and Texas have quickly risen through the country music ranks across the Midwest. Blending south side Oklahoma roots with an unmistakable Nashville sound, Cam has headlined numerous sold-out shows and shared the stage with some of the country’s top music talent, including Dustin Lynch, Randy Rogers, Chris Cagle, Corey Kent and Mike Ryan.
Cam’s music traverses a broad spectrum of emotion but is grounded in his authentic style and unique timbre. Shrouded with relatability, Cam’s mellow, yet catchy tracks narrate stories ranging from love and heartbreak to themes of relationships, family and friends. For Cam, “there’s a lot about finding your way through life as things change, relationships change, and you walk your path of ups and downs.”
As the lead vocalist, Cam is currently supported by a four-piece band. Will Murray is on lead guitar, Zander Silva is on guitar, Desmund Richey is on bass and Carlos Encarnacion is on drums. These self-taught musicians would gather in their parents’ garages to play music together after their wrestling matches, baseball and football games in high school and college. Now based in Moore, Okla., their love for music and passion for writing evolved over the years into a bluesy tinged vocal sound influenced by classic country greats and Texas red dirt styles.
The music community was first introduced to Cam through a Tweet of him performing that went viral, putting a social spotlight on his music. Cam’s distinct voice landed him on American Idol in March 2021 on Season 19 and would result in him being signed to GOAT Music Group.
His debut EP titled Daydream was released in March 2022 on GOAT Music Group, an independent Texas label. Since that project, he has subsequently released five singles. Daydream, Drink To That Too, Texas, Jack Daniel’s Cologne and his latest, the summer party-on-the-water soundtrack, Lake Days.
