[Mixtape] #TheGraduate: Release date set for Nov 28th. 2014
Originally from Lansing, Michigan, Cameron Elias Williams’ love for music and arts has progressed from childhood dreams in his grandmother’s basement to primetime gigs on multiple stages in West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
After a critical dirt bike accident suffered during adolescence, this adrenaline junky found solace in the creative outlet of high school theater, where his innate talents allowed him to fall quickly into star character roles in several performances. Shortly after he joined, Elias began acting at state competitions and fell in love with performing for crowds. This newfound love inspired him to pursue a degree in theater at West Virginia University, where growing confidence and late night writing sessions spurred the beginning of Elias’ music career.
“To see where I’ve come from to where I am now is honestly humbling,” said Elias. “I’m blessed for those who have supported me, and I plan to continue growing as an artist every single day.”
Aside from constantly producing his own material, Elias is a teacher and team member at Lil’ Jammaz Hip-Hop Dance Company, an award-winning crew that allows him to compete on a collegiate level against others in the industry.
In his spare time, Elias also enjoys flexing his creative muscles performing standup comedy at local bars and clubs. This hobby led him to placing third in West Virginia University’s Last Comic Standing, an annual esteemed competition that attracts dozens of standup comedians every year. Despite his prestige, Elias stays humble and continues to dabble in the local comedy scene for one simple reason—to make others happy.
“I love to make people laugh,” said Elias. “I know that a single good laugh can brighten someone’s day, so I love being able to bring a little more joy into people’s lives.”
As for his end goal, it’s simple—to be considered a professional in each of his crafts, from music and theater to dance and standup.
“I love when people say they can’t stop listening to one of my songs,” said Elias. “It lets me know that I’m achieving my goals, and I’ll never stop trying to exceed them as the years go on.”
