LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…The next artist to step onto the stage was Cami Petyn. Though I had never heard of her before this evening, I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority because her popularity as a YouTube personality is huge. I mean, 505K YouTube subscribers (as of October 2021) is pretty damn impressive.
Cami’s performance was as fun and carefree as her YouTube video blogs. Cami had recently released a new single titled “Psycho Bitch”, and she had those words emblazoned on the back of her artistically decorated long coat. Her musical style was a bit pop/punk with a splash of alt mixed in. Like L’FREAQ, she also did a cover of Brittany Spears’ “Toxic”, but hers was a rock & roll version of the song.
Perhaps the most impressive part of her set was her emotional performance of a song I think is called “All My Friends Keep Dying of Drugs” (I have a feeling that this song hasn’t been released yet). Clearly, she was singing to something personal that she’s had to deal with, and it was the performance of this song that really left an impression on me. It revealed a softer, and more tender side to this social media personality. While I haven’t watched all of her YouTube videos, she generally comes across as a perpetually cheery individual. This performance really added a layer of humanity to that persona I gleaned from YouTube.
While Cami’s music career is really only just beginning, it will be interesting to keep an eye on how it grows, especially with her already built-in fan base…”
