Fresh off the heels of attending the Academy of Country Music Awards, where he was nominated for the first time for New Male Artist of the Year, Kameron Marlowe stopped by KYGO’s Performance Studio to perform “Tennessee Don’t Mind,” “Strangers” and a Colorado favorite, “Girl on Fire.”

The 26-year-old was born and raised in a suburb of Charlotte, North Carolina — Kannapolis — and, like many artists, credits his interest in music to country radio, played by his grandfather while the two would fish and hunt together.

At age 10, Marlowe started singing in church and later became a worship leader. In high school, he continued his music journey and joined a band that performed locally. A couple of years after he graduated, in 2017, his mom was forced to quit her job as a result of being diagnosed with a degenerative disc injury in her back. In an effort to support her, Marlowe dropped out of college and worked as an auto parts salesman for General Motors as he continued to play gigs around town.

It was during this time that the North Carolinian was continually uploading videos of his live performances to YouTube. The videos caught the attention of a talent recruiter for “The Voice,” who contacted him, and, he subsequently made his first appearance on the Blind Auditions portion of the show in its 15th season during September of 2018. He initially joined Blake Shelton’s team, but was later stolen by Adam Levine. He was eliminated from the show in the Live Playoffs Top 24 episode.

With the experience of being on “The Voice” under his belt, he made the move to Nashville to pursue a career in music and ended up releasing “Giving You Up,” his debut single, in June 2019. Less than a year later in April 2020, the song had accumulated 15 million streams and was certified Gold by by the RIAA. Shortly thereafter, he signed a management deal with AMG, a songwriting deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and a recording deal with Sony’s Columbia Nashville imprint. In November of 2020, he released his self-titled EP.

After his early-found success, the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic stunted his progress, which forced him to, as he put it, “rebuild.” His rebuilding effort included the release of his first full-length album in August 2022, “We Were Cowboys,” which peaked at the 22nd spot on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.

The “Giving You Up” singer is releasing his second album, “Keepin’ the Lights On,” on May 31.
