Cameron was born in New Mexico, but has been in Arizona for the last 20 years and is proud to represent AZ in his music. He comes from the Maryvale area in Phoenix and was a graduate of Alhambra High School.
“I one day hope to reach and inspire people all over so I can live on forever, whether it’s through my name or music,” Davison said.
Cameron is a family man who loves and enjoys creating music, he performs on stage by the name of Boogeyman and is in the process of releasing his album called “I’m Home” which drops mid November. The album can be found on www.Datpiff.com or their website www.thecontrackent.com. The album “I’m Home” is being released by Davison’s record label Contrack Ent, which is a family owned record label and business created by Cameron (CEO) and his cousin Gary Cox (GM).

Since leaving GCC, Gary has been working hard at creating his music and to make it publicly for everyone to hear. Cox is also fro the Maryvale area of Phoenix, and has been doing rap music for nine years now.
“My style is very witty, catchy, funny and easy”, and “ I am inspired by life experiences, money, sick beats, and love when I create my songs,” Cox said.
While working on Boogeyman’s album “I’m Home,” Cox has also been working on his own album, “How to be Aplaya,” which he hopes to release in 2013.
