A native of South Austin, Cameron Holmes better known by his stage name “Southside Hippie”, is a songwriter, recording artist, and producer. Some of his most recent releases are an EP titled “I’ll Be Better Soon” and the single “Summer Knights''. Two of his songs, “Too Busy” and “Poppin’ Off Tequila”, were featured in the short film ‘Shadows' that debuted on HBO Max.
Often incorporating sounds from alternative indie, hip hop and R&B with an innovative approach, Southside Hippie creates something that is enjoyed by a large scope of audiences and listeners. With the combination of his signature raspy voice and smooth melodic lines, you get a harmonious combination that creates a sort of dreamy atmosphere with a bit of an edge. “Hippie” has recently experimented with more of a pop sound with his latest release “Backwoods & Pino” where he sets the tone with an upbeat bassline which brings levity to the track, making it a great addition to a summer playlist. While continuing to work on music that promotes the message of good vibes, balance, self love, and tapping into one’s self confidence, Hippie is sure to connect to and uplift his listeners with his future releases.
