Cameron Milford is a singer songwriter from Brisbane, Australia. His music blends the sounds of Americana with modern day Indie-Folk. His songs tell stories of bad weather, love and other natural disasters. His brand of “Suburban Roots Music” has been compared to the likes of John Prine, Jakob Dylan and Mark Knopfler.
Milford’s early years were spent in Brisbane’s “alt-country” scene, where he enjoyed success with the band “Inntown”. When the band broke up, he decided to hit the road. For 18 months he traveled the USA and Europe. During this journey he made a stop in Nashville, Tennessee. For months he absorbed the sounds of Bluegrass, Traditional Country and Rockabilly. Inspired by the music of Nashville and his time on the road, Milford began writing the album “Highway Wind”.
The recording of “Highway Wind” was an international effort that spanned Brisbane, Nashville, Sydney and Memphis. The recordings began with Milford’s solo performances, and were completed by a stellar group of musicians. These players included Rob Ickes (Alison Krauss, Blue Highway), David Henry (Steve Earle, Missy Higgins), and Doug Gallacher (Troy Cassar-Daley, Slim Dusty). The album was mixed by Ted Howard (Paul Kelly, Kasey Chambers) at Rancom St Studios in Sydney.
