Bounce-Worthy: Aaron Camper

Making the transition from singing background vocals for other artists to taking center stage isn't for everyone, but singer/songwriter Aaron Camper is ready for his time in the spotlight. His voice and his pen have taken the Maryland native and preacher's kid on an incredible journey these past few years. He's worked with a who's who of artists who can be found on my iPod including Stevie Wonder, Eric Roberson, Tye Tribbett, Marvin Sapp, J. Cole and with Jill Scott as a member of her trio of all-male background vocalists known as The Pipes who many may recall seeing her tour with this year.

Getting steady work as a musician is all fine and dandy, but now Camper is working on his debut album with a mixtape to precede that will showcase his vocal talent. He's already won me over with two tracks that I've heard that you can listen to below. Aaron's remake of Boyz II Men's "Water Runs Dry" is fresh, and he holds his own up against the original. He also snagged Brandy for the sweet duet "Second Thought," and their voices blend together rather nicely. Not to rush perfection, but Aaron Camper's mixtape needs to hurry up and drop so that I can add more of him to my iPod.

  1. I really like the sound of his voice, but that *quacking* off that beat he uses (is that Kanye?) is REALLY distracting. The calm of his singing over such a busy beat isn't working for me. The Brandy duet is pretty. I'm interested in hearing more.

  2. I have a download of 2nd Thought with Brandy solo and Ray J on the background vocals. It was one of the songs they left off of the Human album. I guess I'm a little biased because it just sounds to me as if he just inserted his lines in and it doesn't quite mesh with me....

  4. That "Second Thought" with Brandy is SERIOUS! If that was a "Human" reject, I have to question whoever was executive producer over that album. That's a solid song! I need Brandy on more stuff like that. I look forward to Aaron's mixtape.

  5. The Brandy duet is hot! But can someone explain to me how he is leaving a voicemail at the beginning of the song, when the operator says "your call cannot be completed as dialed"? Just my observation...it's still a nice groove!

  6. HEAT ! Both tunes are worth my hard earned bucks !

  7. goodness... i'm still listening to "second thought"? and i know this post isn't about brandy, but does anyone else wish she--NOT brand nu--would release another bangin' @ss album?

  8. I like the first song and he does a great job..! But the duet....WOW awesome work both he and Brandy kill it...This should be on the radio now...You all do a great job of finding music like this...I was just asking what happened to the DUET ?
