You may recognize the name Kameron Marlowe from the memorable cover of “One Number Away” on season 15 of The Voice but he’s here to prove he’s more than just a cover artist. The 22 year old singer/songwriter released his debut single “Giving You Up” just four months ago. With over 800,000 streams already, the song has spread like wild fire. A month after the release, Kameron made the move from North Carolina to Nashville affording him more opportunities to be in the spotlight and showcase his talents. He caught the eyes and ears of a few industry promoters and ended up on the lineup at rounds like Revival, SundayScool and even the coveted corner stage at Whiskey Jam.

Kameron surprised unsuspecting fans last month with the announcement of his second single, “Take You Up On It.” While his first track was written by Kameron himself, “Take You Up On It” was written by a few of Nashville’s heavy hitters; Rob Williford, Jameson Rodgers and AJ Babcock.
“From the first time I heard the demo of this song, I was all about it. When it was pitched to me, I had it on repeat for days so I just had to cut it. I think they [Williford, Rodgers, and Babcock] knocked it out of the park. I’m super happy with the way it turned out. Brad Hill did an awesome job producing it and I couldn’t be more excited for the song to finally drop.”
The catchy, uptempo song digs into the connection forming between two friends. Tired of assuming her intentions, Kameron begs for his love interest to shoot him straight. Whatever it is she’s looking for, whether it’s someone to buy her a beer, dance her around or spend forever together, he’s ready to take her up on it.
