In the year leading up to the release of his latest record Miami Memory, Alex Cameron lived in a small, carpeted and smoker-friendly apartment in Queens, New York.
Playing an amplified Wurlitzer piano, Cameron wrote songs about sex, contemporary family life, and his relationship with girlfriend Jemima Kirke. The resulting songbook is a twisted portrait of a man tethered to the dodgy, teetering totem of masculinity and a collection of songs that have seen Cameron and his business partner/saxophonist Roy Molloy tour the world, performing to the largest audiences they’ve played to date.
Before the final album recording session, produced by Jonathan Rado and recorded by Marta Salogni in Los Angeles California, the songs were intimate and delicate, capturing the evolution of modern romance through their classic songwriting stages.
‘Miami Memories’ is the first ever release of Cameron’s demos. Four songs in their original form. Here for you to enjoy. Up close and personal.

Today Alex Cameron releases his third album, 'Miami Memory.' As with 2017’s 'Forced Witness,' Cameron’s flair for narrative and character are on full display, yet for the first time, 'Miami Memory'’s most frequent narrator is himself. 'Miami Memory' is Cameron’s love letter to his partner; a vulnerable, tender, and at times lustful, dedication to the one he loves.
Following “Far From Born Again, “Divorce,” and “Miami Memory,” Cameron now presents the album opener and final pre-release single, “Stepdad.” Cameron has become a major presence in his girlfriend’s children’s lives, and “Stepdad” is an ode to the oft-mocked peripheral parental role.
Alex Cameron releases Miami Memory, his new album and love letter to his partner, on September 13th via Secretly Canadian. Following previously released singles “Divorce” and “Miami Memory,” Cameron now presents a new single/video, “Far From Born Again,” which “celebrates the legitimacy of the independent sex worker, and casts a light on the humans that provide the service to millions worldwide.”
