Party music for the first authenticated alien landing! We certainly don't know when that will be, but we've got the music ready and waiting. Both of Cam Newton's international releases, "The Motive Behind the Smile" (IC 1059) and "Welcome Aliens," were praised by RECORD WORLD as "quite extraordinary." BILLBOARD selected Welcome Aliens as a Top Album Pick, and called Cam's music "complex and inventive." DOWN BEAT awarded Welcome Aliens no fewer than 4 1/2 stars of a maximum 5 stars! On the liner notes for his album "First Flight," legendary Jazz guitarist Charlie Byrd recognized Cam Newton, along with John McLaughlin, Larry Coryell, Pat Metheny and Ralph Towner as one of the best of a new generation of Jazz-influenced guitarists. Cam has toured throughout the United States, Mexico and Europe, where he lived and performed for several years. He has toured and performed with a stellar roster of artists, including David Sanborn, Stephane Grappelli, Miles Davis, B.B. King, Manhattan Transfer, Joan Baez, David Crosby, George Winston, Hoyt Axton, J.J. Cale, Joan Armatrading, Richie Havens, Grover Washington, Jr., Jimmy Buffet, Richard Thompson, and Spyro Gyra.
