Combining a love for rootsy maritime music with adoration for the outlaw country heroes of old, Cameron Nickerson crafts a sound that’s both familiar and wholly unique. His debut album, Detours, recalls modern troubadours like Sturgill Simpson while remaining firmly planted in the whiskey-soaked tales of legends like Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard. Whether chugging ahead full-speed with a raucous backing band or having the crowd hang on his every word with a delicate solo performance, Nickerson always manages to captivate.
