Park City Institute presents CAM, Saturday, Aug. 24, and will wrap up the 2019 St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights Summer Concert Series.
The performance begins at 7:30 p.m., at the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Center for the Performing Arts 1750 Kearns Blvd..
“We are closing out the summer with a big country show,” said PCI Executive Director, Teri Orr. “CAM is a powerhouse—she took the Stagecoach festival by storm, with her powerful voice and her high-energy performance style. It’s exciting to present her at the more intimate space at the Eccles Center.”
The country star, whose music has been called “haunting,” by Rolling Stone and Billboard magazines, began her career as a songwriter for artists including Grammy-winner Sam Smith (“Palace,” co-written with Smith and Tyler Johnson) and Miley Cyrus (“Maybe You’re Right”).
CAM has released two solo albums, “Heartforward” (2010) and “Untamed” (2015), and an EP, “Welcome to Cam Country” (2015).
She has performed with Sam Smith, Harry Styles, George Strait and Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
CAM’s 2015 hit song, “Burning House,” hit No. 2 on the U.S. and Canadian country charts, and was certified gold and double platinum.
The song earned her a Grammy Award nomination, as well as nominations for four Academy of Country Music Awards and two Country Music Association Awards.
CAM recently teamed up with electronic-music producer, Diplo, on “So Long,” the first single on his first country album.
Continuing to push genre boundaries, CAM released a cover of “La Marcheuse,” by Christine and the Queens — sung entirely in French.
A vocal advocate for music education and inclusion, CAM holds a degree in psychology from University of California Davis, and prior to committing to her music career, worked in research labs, including one at Stanford University.
She has gave a presentation on the psychology of music in her 2017 TEDx Talk at the University of Nevada.
Well-respected in the music industry for her varied talents, CAM sits on the board of the Academy of Country Music, and she joined the Recording Academy’s Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion in 2018.
Tickets for CAM start at $39, and can be purchased at parkcityinstitute.org, by phone at 435-655-3114, and in person at the Box Office, 1750 Kearns Boulevard, Park City, UT 84060. The Box Office is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.. and on show days beginning at noon.
