In House #1728: Darren Smith & Douglas Cameron Live
It's two for the price of one singer-songwriter day on the show as we enjoy an in-studio visit from Darren Smith and Douglas Cameron. The northwest-based pair (Smith in Seattle, Cameron in Boise, respectively) are in the midst of an acoustic tour together, each contributing backing vocals and guitar to the other's tunes. Smith and Cameron go back a ways, originally to Moscow, ID before going on to both be a part of the band Stranger Neighbor.
Since those days, they've both bounced around a bit-- Smith to Seattle, where he's previously released three albums with the band Straw Dogs, Cameron to Phoenix and Seattle before settling into the solid Boise music scene, forming the Douglas Cameron Band. Both musicians have new solo albums out: Smith's Last Drive is the first of his career and recently came out on the Crafty label; Cameron's Remedies was self-released earlier this year. The duo plays Pocatello's Mocha Madness tonight (7p.) before wrapping up the tour tomorrow night in Twin Falls. Of note, Smith will also be opening for fellow Moscow native Josh Ritter in their hometown on the 29th of October.
