Cameron Osteen is a young musician I met via the forum Future Producers. I was impressed not only by his music, but by the way he uses the web to learn and develop - a true 21st Century digital musician, joining in the global conversations, self-publishing and projecting his identity online.
His blog is 'A hard day's night'.
Hear his music on myspace.
