The Cameron Brothers Band – Ratios

The Cameron Brothers, Scott and Braden, are well traveled. As youths they gusted about rural and urban Ontario, never settling for long. Where families are uprooted, transplanted so frequently into new soils, you find the strongest bonds. Now residents of Toronto, their album features an envious dramatis personae, consisting of some of the strongest characters in the city’s rising folk scene. Notable are vocal harmonies by Kirty and Raven Shields, and a production/musician credit to the insatiable Aaron Comeau. But the album’s strongest moments find the brothers at the forefront: Scott’s writing is strong, his vocals gruff and grounding, an anchor across prairie, shield and coastal terrain. Skip ahead to “Whiskey Winter,” or “Where the River Meets the Sea” for a few of the best moments of the album: the brothers driving, the cast piping in from the backseat.
