CHRIS CAMERON & TREY JOHNSON

May 12, 2022

Chris Cameron blends his guitar virtuosity with genuine, heartfelt vocals putting on a show that displays his blues background beautifully. Chris has performed with Bonnie Raitt, Delbert McClinton, James Cotton, and more. In 2016, Cameron began working as a guitarist for Los-Angeles based rocker and hit writer, Robert Tepper. Most recently, Cameron has been working with a small trio, The Wayward Saints, focused on original music and collaborations with his most accomplished songwriter friends.


Trey Johnson is a force of blues, roots, and Americana. With one foot in the air and one foot stomping out the rhythm of the Heartland, and his two hands holding on to the guitar for dear life, his unmistakable sound and talent energize audiences. As diverse as Trey's music is, it's no wonder that he's found several avenues for expressing his art. Trey can be found entertaining audiences solo, or with his buddy and bottle rocket of a blues harp man, Jason Willmon. Trey is guaranteed to leave his audiences grinning like foxes digging yellowjackets.
