We had the good fortune of connecting with Kameron Hollis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kameron, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
I believe that music is always evolving and finding new ways to be created and distributed to the masses. So I wouldn’t necessarily call my highest success dream an end goal. My ultimate desire is to establish something that goes beyond me and my own vision. I hope that it is a never ending tree that keeps growing new roots to sustain my children and many generations after me. By the end of my career, I want my brand to be something that exudes trust and quality. Yes I want it to be successful and recognizable, but more importantly, reliable. I want artists, producers, event planners, churches, Hollywood, etc to know that if Urban Music Society has their hand in it, you won’t be disappointed. Whether we are playing for your cocktail party, doing live sessions for your album, backing you up on stage on tour, or giving lessons to aspiring musicians, I want excellence in all aspects of my business and brand.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Urban Music Society was built on an idea that one company can produce great live music no matter the venue or occasion. We can be on your playlist, tv, a concert, or privately in your home or backyard. I dreamt of having a company that has it’s hands in multiple channels of the music industry. The misconception of musicians sometimes is that any musician that has talent can play anything or anywhere. That is not true at all. Skill is only a percentage of what it takes to be apart of my company, let alone the industry. Attitude and character speak louder than your instrument, and that is one thing that separates my brand from others. We have a heart for people and a desire to spread love and joy any place we’re at. As my pastor would say, “we have to be the light amongst the darkness”. Through years of countless stage performances, gigs, tours, studio sessions, etc., I started to carve out the blueprint for what I wanted my own brand to look like. After years of doing all that, I decided to take it a step further. Not only start just another band, but turn that into a business and create a brand. Urban Music Society became an official company towards the end of 2019. In spite of the pandemic, we still have been successful in providing memorable live experiences to our clients. And it’s only going up from here.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’m pretty much a homebody so I wouldn’t really know any good spots lol. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Absolutely. God first and foremost, has given me unbelievable favor on this journey. My parents have been and always will be my biggest supporters and my rock. My mentors Jeff Davis II and Vaughn Fahie have been shaping not only my musical career but my life as a black man of value and substance. My girlfriend who is the love of my life, lifts me up everyday and allows me to be the man that I am and work towards making my dreams come true. And I have a lot of dreams. Lastly, any of my friends that I play with often, or any other incredible musician Ive had the privilege to share a stage with. I learn something from them every time and I do not take those moments and experiences for granted.
