Episode 1.21 / Spacebomb’s Cameron Ralston and Gardening
Cameron Ralston is the house bassist and a producer for Spacebomb, a collective of musicians based in Richmond, Virginia, who set up a record label and production company based around a house band. They followed a model established by the likes of Stax or Motown, with a signature style inspired by a love of great American soul music.
As The Guardian put it, “they make albums that sound like a million dollars” – and this and this October they assemble in London for a one off show that will include guest collaborations with the likes of Natalie Prass, Slow Club, The Waterboys’ Mike Scott, Foxygen and Charlie Fink from Noah and the Whale.
Ahead of that show we met Spacebomb bassist Cameron Ralston to talk about something he likes to do when he’s not in the studio or on the road: gardening.
