The Reel is an Alternative Pop/Rock band that began with two guys and their acoustic guitars. It was hard to deny the musical connection; The Reel was born with their first album, Come Alive. After two years, Cameron and Curtis were introduced to Christian and they knew that he was right guy to lay down the groove. It was obvious who the other two band members would be. Kevin, a long time friend and guitarist, and Jacob, who truly knew the meaning of “slappa da bass!” Becoming more brothers than friends, The Reel found their sound. Coming from Placerville, California, The Reel is most commonly known to play around California in churches, bars, and festivals. However, they have made it around the United States and other countries, traveling to Niger, Africa and Delhi, India. In just the past two years, The Reel has accomplished national radio with their song, “Come Alive” as well as several interviews on local radio stations. They have also been featured in newspapers across California. In addition, The Reel is proud to be a partner of Courage to Be You, Inc., an international, non-profit organization dedicated to building homes and providing care for underage victims of human sex-trafficking. More recently, The Reel entered competition and headed to Nashville where they were privileged to perform at the CMAs and won 2nd place for their song “What If You Believed”. Their new song, “Made For You”, recently won Grand Prize for the West Coast Songwriters International Song Competition. Beyond their love of music, The Reel’s passion is to inspire, challenge, and move people. The Reel’s second album Stars is out now and can be purchased at live shows, from iTunes or from Amazon MP3.

Fun Fact
Cameron started his career as a dancer.
Cameron Stymeist was born and raised in Placerville, CA where he still resides. It wasn't until around the 8th grade his father taught him his first few guitar chords. Halfway through high school, Cameron found his love for singing when his best friend conned him into choir for 5 extra credit points. Cameron wrote and performed his first original song for his high school "Farewell Rally" which helped him discover his passion for songwriting. He knew at this point that music would always be an integral part of his life. Cameron has since won a multitude of awards for his craft.
