Best known as the guitarist and primary songwriter for the alternative pop band Smash Mouth, Greg Camp is also an established producer and solo artist. Born in Covina, CA, in 1967, Camp was an experienced punk-oriented musician when he co-founded Smash Mouth in the mid-'90s. Largely responsible for writing most of Smash Mouth's hit songs (including "'All Star," "Walking on the Sun," "Then the Morning Comes," and others), Camp has a knack for mixing influences such as Dick Dale surf guitar and Elvis Costello pop -- as well as hip-hop, new wave, and more -- with his general love of retro culture. In 2008, Camp announced he was leaving Smash Mouth to focus on several projects, including his solo material. He released his debut solo album, Defektor, on Bar None Records in 2008. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi
