Born in Denver, Colorado and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, Cameron The Public (aka Cameron Rafati) is a man inspired by the need to make music. Not desire. NEED. No college classes or day job could get in the way of Cameron’s true mission in life– creating genre bending, blues funk rock infused tracks with tinges of country and vintage R&B. Cameron The Public’s music is a must for fans of everything from the uplifting rock tinged hip-hop of Michael Franti and Spearhead to the modern blues guitar mastery of Robert Randolph. Check out Cameron The Public’s video for “Scream” to experience the versatility of this vocalist and band.
