Young musician gets airtime

| 03/06/2009

(CNS): Known to his friends as “Jiggz” 16 year-old Cameron Bodden of George Town is becoming Cayman’s latest star since local radio station Hot 104.1 got a listen of the talent young man’s work and began playing his song “Mi Wa Know” on air regularly. Working from his home with only a laptop and a microphone, Cameron wrote and recorded the reggae song in just two weeks. 


When HOT 104.1 Street Team Captain Yvonne McField heard the song she says she was instantly impressed. “When I learned of his age and that he had no previous experience in recording, I was doubly surprised.  I thought that the song would be a hit on the airwaves, so I passed it along to HOT 104.1 Programming Director, Chuck Taylor.” 

Taylor also recognized Cameron’s talent and put the song in the regular rotation on HOT 104.1. 

“Cameron is incredibly talented for a musician and songwriter his age,” said Taylor, “When Yvonne sent me his demo recording, I thought it was one of the bigger reggae artists from the Caribbean!  ‘Mi Wa Know’ has been well-received since its debut on HOT 104.1 and we are excited to hear future music from Cameron.” 

Inspired by his newfound success, Cameron is currently devoting most of his time to writing and recording new music for his friends and fans to enjoy.  Fans of the song can request “Mi Wa Know” by calling the station’s hotline at 943-1041 or by visiting the station’s website,
