Cam Groves
Cam Groves
Cam Groves is an emcee from Maine known for his clever wordplay and relatable subject matter. As he once rapped in 2009, to sum himself up: "Fast food / Pabst Blue / Cam Groves: That's Who." Cam also isn't pretending to be anything he's not, like some emcees, as evidenced by his line that he's "about as gangster as a gangster having a web site."

Cam was introduced to rap music at a young age, in
the early '90's when the likes of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg were at the start of their careers. He sampled different styles by hanging around with his older sister and her friends, and as his taste evolved, he became a fervent fan of the Wu Tang Clan. To this day he still calls 36 CHAMBERS one of his favorite rap albums.

Cam wrote his first rhymes during high school, free-styling with friends during study hall sessions and in smoky cars on the weekends. Post-high school, he continued his rap efforts with hometown companion Spose. He learned the ways of recording while working on a guest verse for the song "John Madden," on Spose's 2007 self-released debut album PREPOSTEROUSLY DANK.

Cam made his true recording debut in the summer of 2009, when the Spose and Cam Groves mixtape "We Smoked it All" came out. The release held steadily at the top of the Bull Moose Music / Portland Phoenix "Local Music Charts" for months. Groves emerged onto Portland's blossoming rap scene while performing tracks from the mixtape on a local scale. Later, as Spose's hype man, Cam expanded his experience to the national level in 2010 when he rocked the same stages as hiphop and pop music's heavy hitters: Brother Ali, Sean Price, Grieves, Wiz Khalifa, Weezer, The New Boyz, B.o.B, and Mike Posner.

Cam currently lives in Wells, Maine where he's vigorously writing and recording his own EP/mixtape, the anticipated title: HOPE SOMETHING COOL HAPPENS.
