Dana Point, CA- For a music festival located on the beach, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone in a suit, let alone a black suit. But there he was, a man in black, crooning away under the mid-day sun. Cameron Avery is the bassist for the psych rock band Tame Impala, but at The Ohana Fest he took center stage to showcase music from his solo album, “Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams”.


His solo music is starkly different than that of his band. It’s a collection of music that seems to pay deference to some of the music from days past. Cameron is on record as stating that he drew inspiration for his solo album from artists like  “Elvis, Sinatra and Etta James”, but I got some modern Nick Cave vibes as well. Maybe it was the black suit, but I’m thinking it was more of his brooding baritone vocals (though he really does have a clean falsetto).

It was an eclectic mix of music, ranging from delicate pop ballads to heavy blues numbers, but it seemed to me that Cameron recorded the new record to flex his chops and pay tribute to music that he clearly holds dear to heart. It’s music that clearly speaks to his soul, and offers listeners an opportunity to get into his mind for the duration of the listen.  While fans of Tame Impala may have been a little taken aback- anticipating Tame Impala type music- by Mr. Avery’s performance, it certainly did not take away from the wonderfully soulful performance that he gave to The Ohana Fest.
