SMA MUSICIAN PROFILE - Cameron Jamieson

I started working for String Musicians Australia in Brisbane about 5 years ago. I’m really enjoying working with such a great team of players and I’m happy to be a regular with the company as this is the kind of work that really gets me going. I also love recording sessions for TV and playing with the MSO.

I’m originally from Brisbane but moved to Melbourne in 2012 and have really fallen in love with the city. That said, there’s certainly a part of me that stays in Brisbane and I love to go back to Queensland for some of Summer to see family and spend some time at the beach.

I’d have to say I associate travel with music strongly because it's taken me around the country and across the world. I’ve been fortunate enough to have some great teachers and mentors over the years but can’t deny how great it is being your own boss and working out the best way to play for me and my style.

After 20 years playing the violin I’d say we’ve gotten to know each other quite well. This particular instrument, Charlotte, has been very cooperative over the last 5 years and has taken me through some pretty full on experiences

What a lot of people in the classical world don't know about me is that “by night” I write and produce electronic and acoustic music in various forms under the name ‘seejay’. Just yesterday I was laying down 22 violin and vocal tracks for a pretty strange film-score/pop rock fusion track. Not sure if that’ll see the light of day but it’s a lot of fun working with various real-life and digital elements in the studio. I’d say I don't have a specific style to stick to but certainly a recognizable sound. Those minor 7th chords, they’re everywhere, I can’t escape it. It’s almost embarrassing! I turn over a new album about once or twice a year which gives me goals and publishes the latest tricks I’ve learnt.

When I’m working, I’m usually grinning or laughing because I get a real kick out of performing with good people and there’s something particularly fun about the event string quartet business.
