He is determined to devote his interdisciplinary art to help ameliorate some of the countless issues facing our world today.
Exact Change Project is a live hip-hop band from Queens and Brooklyn, New York City. Their progressive style fuses international vibes with jazz, funk, and latin rhythms. The composition is collective; the lyricism and musicality is purposeful. Their sound is inspired from a wide range of musical styles across eras, from Thelonious Monk to Hiatus Kaiyote, from A Tribe Called Quest to Radiohead. “Weight of the Wild” is truly a fusion of styles, both topically and musically. Written months after the group’s return from living abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the album is a memoir of both their travels and eventual return to NYC.

Currently based in New York, Cam Shaw is a Hip-Hop/Indie artist and producer. His songs touch on themes such as: the inner self, love/romance, mental health, and the enjoyment of life.
Cam’s genre blending music does not shy away from vulnerability, but is sure to do so with confidence. Drawing inspiration from Mac Miller, The Beatles, Dominic Fike, and even Bossa Nova artists, he has crafted his own sound that lands somewhere between Hip-Hop, Rock, and Indie Pop.
Cam began his music career as a bedroom musician, recording, producing, and mixing music from his home studio. Slowly building up a fan base and perfecting his craft, he has recently begun performing live at venues in NYC, most recently at Heaven Can Wait in NYC, selling over 40 tickets on a Wednesday. Over the past year he has amassed an impressive amount of music, with a 14 track, self produced album titled, “Floating”, set to release at the end of May 2022, and multiple singles to follow it.
