Cam Waters has spent the last twenty-odd years crisscrossing the country and honing his unique style on the stages of coffeehouses, clubs, concert halls, and festivals. Music writers across the country and in Europe consistently commend his understated, expressive singing and his simple yet inventive fingerstyle and slide guitar playing. His literate, tradition-based songwriting mixes seamlessly with his arrangements of rural blues, jug band songs, and American folk music. He has appeared in concert with Doc Watson, Dave Van Ronk, David Bromberg, Maria Muldaur, Greg Brown, Spider John Koerner, Roy Book Binder, Steve James, Bob Brozman, Robin and Linda Williams, and many more of acoustic musicâs most well-respected performers.

Waters also spent five years playing National metal-bodied guitars, singing, and stomping on a thrift store hi-hat cymbal with a jug band-influenced trio called The Sugar Kings, which also included Clint Hoover (harmonica, vocals) and Steve Sandberg (tuba). The group released one CD entitled "Take Your Time, Mr. Brown" (2000), enjoyed critical raves, and performed at several major Midwestern music festivals before disbanding in early 2002.

Waters has released a number of recordings since his first in 1988. These CDs have helped make Waters a Minnesota Public Radio favorite and and have received airplay across the US and Europe. His most recent, "Magical Mystery Train," is far and away his finest to date. It returns the focus to Waters' songwriting after several years of emphasizing blues and folk arrangements, though it still includes a few of these. This new recording also features some of the finest accompanists in the Midwest, and was recorded by vintage microphone collector and tone freak Matthew Zimmerman at Wild Sound in Minneapolis.

A native of Iowaâs only bona fide tourist trap (Okoboji and its environs), Waters spent six years in Iowa City, IA, seven on the Mississippi River in Red Wing, MN, and six more in St. Paul before moving to Rochester, MN in the early part of this century.
