Name: Mark Cameron
Hometown: Newton Mearns, Glasgow, Scotland
What Do You Do: Currently studying pastoral leadership. I have also worked bars, restaurants, trained bands and work with guys who want out of pornography addiction (the last bit’s true but I dunno how censored the site is!)
How Long Have You Been Busking: I first hit the streets in September 2006
Favorite Busking Location: It has to be Kings Cross (Sydney) on a Friday/Saturday night!
Why: It’s lively, fun and people are out to enjoy the night. It’s also a very real place where people are open and talk straight!
Most Memorable Busking Moment: Funniest was seeing 15 guys get refused entry back into their bar for singing too loudly on the street! Sorry guys!
But really it would be spending time with a guy whose mum had committed suicide 1 year before and being able to share life, as well as support a stranger in a hard time.
Influences: Damien Rice, Muse, Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Creed.
Equipment Used: Ashton BSK158, Ashton Mic Stand, Shure PG48 Microphone, Boss TU-2, Washburn D46SCE Acoustic Guitar and me!
Best Busking Tip: The one who plays without passion, plays with nothing!
