The shimmering star of Alex Cameron continues to shine bright from the gutters of show business four albums into his prolific career as an entertainer. And yet, people still have questions. Is he really 6 ft 4 inches tall? Why do none of his suits fit him properly? If he really is Australian, then why does he speak in a strange sort of European world news accent?
And while the answers to these questions may or may not be of any interest to anybody – there they remain – shot into the sky like flares as red hot as the notes from his business partner and horn player Roy Molloy’s alto saxophone.
Maybe Alex is the one looking for the answers. Maybe he’s the one who asked the questions. One thing is for sure, the person writing these words is not the man himself. And I can assure you, I was compensated fairly for the work. Don’t believe me? Just ask his band – the sultry six piece (Cameron and Molloy included) of exceptionally multi talented musicians with whom the business associates tour. Juice, Henners, Kramer and Parsons. A dynamic force equal parts hip thrusting rhythm and tongue tantalising tunes.
Fresh off the world’s biggest stages – Roskilde, Primavera, Laneway. This act has seen it all. Now it’s your turn to see them.
Catch Alex Cameron, Roy Molloy, and their band of perpetual freshness in your town soon. They sell out shows. Don’t find out the hard way.
Loah is Sallay-Matu Garnett, a singer songwriter of Irish /Sierra Leonian descent. She performs her unique blend of Afro-folksoul across solo projects and with collaborators including Hozier, Lisa Hannigan, Fehdah, and Bantum, and most recently during quarantine, Queens rapper Bas and Ron Gilmore Jr (J Cole, Ari Lennox). She starred as Mary Magdalene in the 2019 Barbican production of Jesus Christ Superstar. During the pandemic, she returned to her old vocation as a pharmacist to work on the frontline, and still continued to contribute culturally, co-presenting the primetime RTE show The Heart of Saturday Night with Úna Healy and in 2021 releasing When I Rise Up, an EP of poetry from the 1920s set to music.
