Cameron Mizell

New York Guitarist & Composer

Guitarist Cameron Mizell’s music has been described as “skillfully pairing controlled abstraction with Americana roots” and his playing “superbly presents high technical proficiency, artistry, and melodic skills.” His latest solo guitar album, Memory/Imagination, is available on Destiny Records.

Quietly and efficiently, Mizell has put together a remarkably tuneful, eclectic, understatedly cinematic body of work. In a world overpopulated by guys who play a million notes where one would do, Mizell’s economical, purposeful style stands out even more.
