Kamerin McDonald

Teaches: Ensembles, Voice

Kamerin is a nonbinary, trans singer, songwriter and teacher. Primarily a solo performer these days, Kamerin isn’t afraid to show their vulnerability on stage as they explore places of loneliness, nostalgia and heartbreak. Their dreamy, introspective, stylings combine a hauntingly pure, virtuosic vocal sound with electronics-based loops and tasteful beats to send you melting backward into some childhood nostalgia you didn’t know you had.

Kamerin holds a Bachelor’s degree in music from Wesleyan University (2011) and is a graduate of the Mills Masters Composition program (’14), where they received the Paul Merritt Henry prize for excellence in string composition. After graduating from Mills, they collaborated regularly with inkBoat Physical Theater and Dance, writing and performing live musical accompaniment for a number of performances including Line Between (Seoul International Dance Festival), 99 Rituals, and the Storm in My House. Kamerin’s also had the honor of performing with Kronos Quartet, Seattle-based Degenerate Ensemble, William Winant Percussion Ensemble, Wax Poets Collective, and others.
