Cameron Thane Muncey (born 8 February 1980 in Melbourne, Australia) is an Australian guitarist and vocalist. He is the mainstay lead guitarist and one of the songwriters of Melbourne-based rock band Jet which formed in 2001. Muncey co-wrote many of Jet's hits with Nic and Chris Cester, including "Are You Gonna Be My Girl", "Radio Song", "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is" and "Cold Hard Bitch".
Cameron Muncey attended St Bedes High School with future bandmates Nic and Chris Cester. Muncey took up guitar after hearing "Sunshine Of Your Love" by Cream. Muncey and Nic Cester became best friends at school, with Cester declaring "He had 'Led Zeppelin' written on his bag, and so did I, so it was inevitable, I guess", on the band's documentary recorded on their DVD, Right! Right! Right!.
Cameron Muncey was born on the 4th of February 1980.
Muncey's trademark guitar for Get Born was a Gibson Flying V, and he has used it in concert and in many of the videos. He has since switched to Gibson Les Pauls and SGs. Since Shaka Rock, Muncey mainly plays a Gibson ES137. In the video for "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" he can be seen wearing an AC/DC t-shirt. Cameron had an older brother named Timothy who died in infancy before Cameron was born. The song "Timothy" from "Get Born" was written about him.
Muncey sings lead on a number of Jet's songs, including "Hey Kids", "Radio Song" and more recently "She Holds A Grudge".
Muncey married his girlfriend of 7 years, Sarah Rumbelow, on 18 August 2009.
