Cam O'bi
LVA Graduate 2008
Major: Piano

     Cam O’bi is a highly influential, Grammy-award-winning record producer whose compositions and lyrics have permeated popular music for the past decade. He became known globally as a record producer after his contributions to Chance the Rapper's 2013 album Acid Rap and 2017 Grammy-winning album Coloring Book. Throughout his career, he has produced records for chart-topping artists (SZA, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Big Sean, Snoh Alegra, and others), with many of these records reaching Gold and Platinum certifications by the RIAA. Yet even with all of his professional success, Cam has never forgotten his humble roots in Las Vegas and continues to speak highly of his experience as a student at LVA.

     Cam exhibited a penchant for music in his early childhood years. He began to learn the foundations of music composition and production at the age of eleven on a family computer his grandmother bought for him and his five siblings. After teaching himself to play piano in the summer of 2007, Cam auditioned for LVA with "Autumn Leaves" and was excited to learn he was admitted to the program.

     He dedicated himself fully to the art of composition through the Piano and Jazz Studies majors and spent countless hours independently studying music production and engineering at home in the evenings after school, as well as composing songs with many of his LVA classmates. He approached his musical beginnings with deep intrinsic motivation to learn and an inextinguishable belief in himself that eventually led him to great success.

     Cam graduated from LVA in 2008 and went on to receive worldwide acclaim in the music industry for his creative and undeniably unique production style. For the past few years, Cam has continued to produce records for accomplished artists while gradually turning himself fully toward his own debut album, Grown Ass Kid, which is slated to be released through London-based label Don’t Sleep. We are all very excited to see where this release leads Cam on what is sure to be an exhilarating new chapter in his music career.
