Clayton Cameron


Clayton “Brush Master” Cameron’s career is as diversified as it is long. For nearly five decades he has played and recorded with many artist including Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, James Brown, BB King, Trisha Yearwood, Mariah Carey, George Shearing, Hank Jones and the Count Basie Orchestra to name a few.

Cameron is a bandleader whose debut CD “Here’s to the Messengers” paid tribute to Art Blakey and gained critical acclaim. Sponsors for Cameron include Ludwig, LP, DW, Zildjian, Remo and Regal Tip.
