Caleb Cornett (born May 19, 1987), better known by his stage name Amtrac, is an American songwriter, producer, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and DJ.[1]

Career[edit]

Born and raised in Morehead, Kentucky, he now lives in Louisville, Kentucky [2] and is signed to Miami, Florida -based management company Super Music Group.[3] His first music video, "Came Along", debuted on MTV's Clubland in October 2011.[4] [5]

About the song, tastemaker website RCRDLBL said “Amtrac, the solo project of Kentucky's Caleb Cornett, has just the right mixture of pop and cutting-edge sonics to break through the void. On ‘Came Along,’ Amtrac guides a rapid, crunchy beat and electric piano figures to a thoroughly mature songwriting space. He's restless, though. This poise quickly evolves into spliced samples flickering across the track in microtonal dots—a true dancefloor deconstruction." [6]

Amtrac played at Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Forecastle Festival and Osheaga Festival in 2013.[7][8][9]

in 2013, Amtrac remixed Kaskade's single "Atmosphere" and the remix was released on Ultra Records. He also appeared on the Atmosphere tour with stops at Brooklyn's Barclay's Center Miami's American Airlines Arena, Navy Pier in Chicago, and Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles. [10]
