Nashville-based Americana meets country singer-songwriter Cameron Hawthorn has just released his debut five-track EP. Entitled Mustang, the EP is a relatable body of work detailing everything from embracing one’s own true self, understanding loss and the hurt one can cause another and how important friendships are. Sonically, the EP features soft folk inspired ballads such as “To Break Hers” and “Dancing in the Living Room” as well as more robust Americana country rock tunes “Boys” and “Mustang”. There is even a pop country song with a bit of rockabilly influence, entitled “Oh Hot Damn”.
Cameron Hawthorn burst onto the scene last year with the release of his touching music video “Dancing in the Living Room” in which he came out in as gay. The visuals showed a variety of couples dancing close in their own living rooms and at the end Cameron is seen dancing with his loved one. This touching narrative and stunning country song went viral and catapulted Cameron into the spotlight.
Take a listen to Mustang now and embrace your true self.
