ABOUT KAMERON MARLOWE

With a voice that resonates like thunder in the heart of Nashville, Kameron Marlowe is hailed as one of Country music’s most thrilling voices. He’s been through some changes in his 26 years, from adapting to life on the road to achieving RIAA Platinum-certified status and gracing stages alongside Country music juggernauts. Raised in Kannapolis, N.C, Marlowe’s musical journey began in church choirs and high school bands. After leaving college to support his family, he gained traction online and moved to Music City. His self-written viral hit “Giving You Up,” born from personal heartache, catapulted him into the spotlight before striking a deal with Sony Music Nashville. His debut album We Were Cowboys followed suit and garnered both critical acclaim and two GOLD-certified tracks, earning him recognition from industry tastemakers and streaming platforms alike. As his profile has grown, he’s sold-out headlining shows coast to coast and has toured with the likes of Morgan Wallen, Zach Bryan, Luke Combs, Riley Green and Lainey Wilson. Still with the same band he’s had since he was 14, he’s known for delivering high impact performances, with all the energy of a true rock show. 


And now, his evolution unfolds further on his upcoming 16-track output, Keepin’ The Lights On, arriving May 31. The scope and maturity of the album establish him as a true force in today’s Country music—a triple-threat singer, songwriter, and performer blazing his own path, marked by his distinctively soulful and resonant vocals. It’s a journey that delves deep into the human experience, touching on themes of mental health, battling feelings of inadequacy and the relentless pursuit of success. Marlowe lays it all on the line, revealing vulnerability in a way he’s never done before. Rooted in unapologetic risk, fueled by vulnerability, and thoughtfully presented in concept like a perfect setlist from start to finish, Marlowe achieves connection through a ride of uniqueness that swerves the normal comfort zone. His sophomore album, developed from over 200 shows in the last two years, is the culmination of Marlowe’s steadfast dedication, and fans will soon see first-hand his tireless commitment to his craft, not only on the road, but also in the studio. “If I can continue to be this personal in my writing, I feel like it will connect to people in a deeper way,” he shares. “That’s all I want to do. And when you go deeper with yourself, you can connect deeper with other people.”
