Nigel Cameron grew up in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where he was a Civil Servant for around 25 years. In recent years he also worked part-time as music co-ordinator for his church in Belfast before moving to Sussex, England, in 2014, where he now lives with his wife, Julie.
Music has always been a big part of Nigel's life - he sings and plays drums/percussion and Irish whistles and his Celtic sounds have been released all over the world: From conferences in Ireland including 'the Mandate', 'Inside Out', 'The Armoury' and 'Focusfest’ (where Nigel was musical director) to large celebrations in Tanzania, Africa, international conferences at Willow Creek Church, Chicago and Elmbrook Church, Milwaukee, ECM conferences in Spain, worship gatherings in Kalisz, Poland .... and more recently, with his wife Julie, to events in England, Jersey, Brussels, Poland, Macedonia and Florida USA.
With the folk group Slemish he has also travelled extensively, taking Irish music and ministry to Spain, France, Switzerland, Portugal, Germany and throughout Ireland.
As well as a worship leader, musician and songwriter, Nigel also uses his photography to express the ‘sense of wonder’ he experiences through nature. His DVD 'Creation Calm' released in 2007, captures the essence of his passion for Creator focussed worship, blending photography and music in a creative way.
In April 2013 he released his first solo worship CD 'Sunrise to Sunset' showcasing 12 of his best songs in a variety of musical styles, and including a guest vocal from Joanne Hogg (Iona) on the song 'Creator God', a song which was also featured on Kingsway's 'Heart of Worship (Vol 10)' album.
His first project in England has been the recording of an all-age worship album. 'Get Real' is the culmination of many years of writing songs for Holiday Bible Clubs and family services. It features 11 songs from that portfolio that will have a wide appeal and is guaranteed to raise a smile!
