Melodic and pop-driven, Jim Camacho's music has been featured on several films including Tom Dowd & the Language of Music, Pledge This, and Fatboy and captures the catchy, soft folk-rock instincts of Elvis Costello and Jack Johnson, with occasional riffs that conjure up Oasis acoustic sessions. The Miamian songwriter, who was named "Best Acoustic Performer" by Miami New Times in 2005, will play shows on July 3 and July 4 at Luna Star Cafe and Alligator Alley, respectively. The shows are to celebrate the release of his latest album, Beachfront Defeat.
