Alex Cameron (born 11 September 1988) is an Australian musician and singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Sydney, he is best known for his solo career, a high-concept act in which Cameron initially adopted the persona of a failed entertainer. He is also a member of the electronica act Seekae. During live performances, Cameron is often joined by saxophonist and "business partner" Roy Molloy.
Cameron independently released his debut album, Jumping the Shark, for free on his website in 2013. After catching the attention of indie rock duo Foxygen at a concert in Paris, Cameron toured extensively with Mac DeMarco, Kevin Morby, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Angel Olsen. In 2016, Secretly Canadian reissued the album to a wider audience and growing cult fanbase.
While promoting the album, Cameron struck up a friendship with The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers and subsequently co-wrote songs on the band's fifth and sixth studio albums, Wonderful Wonderful (2017) and Imploding the Mirage (2020). In 2017, Cameron released his second studio album, Forced Witness, featuring contributions from Molloy, Flowers, Olsen and Jonathan Rado. His third studio album, Miami Memory, was released in September 2019. His fourth studio album, Oxy Music, was released in March 2022.
