Miami native Jim Camacho co-founded and led the standout group The Goods, which was active during the 1990s, worked with legendary producer Tom Dowd, won the prestigious “Album of the Year” Florida Jammy award and topped the Billboard Florida Radio & Record charts with their single “I’m Not Average”. Their high-energy live show, outstanding musicianship and relentless touring led them to sign a recording contract with Polygram Records and be featured in a VH1 documentary. The Goods shared the stage with Pearl Jam, The Smithereens, Cracker and Matthew Sweet.
His solo career has seen him release five collections of songs, including 2005’s Stalker Songs, which earned a Gold Remi award in the Music Video category at the 40th Annual WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival for the song titled “Houdini.” His material garnered “Best Acoustic Performer” (2005) and “Best Album” (2009 for Beachfront Defeat) honors from the Miami New Times, and the Broward Palm Beach New Times called Everywhere one of the top albums of 2013. His other solo releases include 2001’s Trouble Doll and 2003’s Hey Hey*.
In addition, Camacho’s music was featured in the Grammy-nominated Tom Dowd & the Language of Music documentary, in National Lampoon’s Pledge This, and the documentary Fatboy, which was nominated for “Best Use of Music in a Documentary” accolades at the Sundance Film Festival. His song “I Don’t Need You Anymore” (also from Beachfront Defeat) was featured prominently in the soundtrack for the hit ABC family show Pretty Little Liars. Jim has played at Radio City Music Hall, the Kodak Theater and Mirage Hotel, toured with Alicia Keys and John Legend as guitarist and musical director for the solo artist Zascha Moktan.
Jim toured the west coast, as a solo artist, with folk legend Linda Perhacs and played a string of dates in the U.K. in 2014. Jim also laid down tracks at Capitol Records’ vaunted L.A. recording studio for an upcoming release, the follow-up to the Everywhere EP, featuring a series of singles that were rolled out beginning with being “Ophelia”, which was released in February 2015, followed by “Please Come Home”, issued in July of 2015. Jim’s next single “Make It to the Morning Light” is scheduled for a spring 2016 release.
Camacho has also become prolific at writing musicals and scoring children’s theater productions. His initial foray into the realm began with Fools’ Paradise, which was choreographed by the acclaimed Jonathan Cerullo and ran as a full production in Miami and sold out concert performance workshops in New York. Next he co-wrote and scored Guru, which premiered in Miami, scored Mickey Herman Saves the $#&@ World, which premiered at the Adrienne Arsht Center, wrote the book and music for The Cavie Islanders and the Troll, The Guru of Gir, and his most recent musical, Digging for Bones, which had its premiere performance in May 2015.
Camacho has also collaborated with puppet master and children’s TV show vet Noel MacNeal on Who Put The Trick in Trick or Treat: Tales of Amazing Tricksters, Beasts of the Magical World and The Carnival of Extraordinary Animals, which have enjoyed productions over three consecutive years during the Boo at the Zoo at the Bronx Zoo, and Mouse King, another collaboration with MacNeal first staged in 2013, and which has now become an annual holiday tradition, having enjoyed three sell-out performances in 2015.
Jim’s newest single, ‘Make It to the Morning Light’, was released March 10, 2016.
