Allan Cameron started his musical path in Tamworth in the originals band “Cornerstone Rock” performing their mostly original gospel country/rock material quickly becoming a sought-after NSW act. He then made the move to Sydney working his way up the gruelling Sydney originals ladder in the band “Sebastian Brik” going from small corner pubs such as Randwick Racecourse Hotel all the way up to choice supports at larger venues like the Coogee Bay Hotel and Caringbah Inn.
Making the move to Brisbane with his songwriting partner, Allan then joined the top Queensland/Australian touring act “Rusty and the Ayer’s Rockettes and went on to tour all of Australia playing to crowds of thousands at a time earning the nickname “Allan Barnes” for his wild vocal performances.
Allan appeared with “Rusty and The Ayer’s Rockettes” in Hong Kong as an Ambassador Artist for Expo and this amongst his other achievements has placed him in demand as a session vocalist and guitarist, also called on as a musician/singer for many live acts.
After “Rusty..”Marlon Holden, Peter Clarke and Keith Urban formed the band “Three Magic Words” and when Keith had to leave to follow his solo career Allan was asked to come in to fill his place and they became one of the most respected Queensland acts of the 90's, a band that is still talked about as the one to aspire to. Keith returned to the fold for a time making the band 4 piece and then when his solo material began being noticed Allan, Peter and Marlon became the base for his touring band, certainly one of the most important times in shaping Allan’s musical future.
