THE BIG BEAT Song of the Week: Alex Cameron – “Runnin’ Outta Luck”

How much did this video cost to make? A few thousand bucks? Less? No matter. As long as the song plays it doesn’t matter what they do with the video, but seeing Alex groove on the beach is a nice bonus.

Alex Cameron is out of Sydney, Australia, and thanks to Secretly Canadian, his music is reaching a larger audience. They even say so themselves… “Its 2016, and its time for Alex Cameron. Entertainer. Showman. Shaman. Side by side with his business partner and saxophonist, Roy Molloy, the duo are a living and breathing story of success told through the internet; unedited, unscripted, and, up until now, to a dedicated audience of no one. Thanks to the good people at Secretly Canadian that is about to change.”
