Ted Russell Kamp

Ted Russell Kamp is a musicians' musician. He has toured the world as a singer/songwriter, playing solo and with his band, and released 11 solo albums. He has been called "a striking singer/songwriter ... absolutely hypnotizing" (Music Row, USA) and "terrific ... a star on the rise in the tradition of great troubadours like Guy Clark" (No Depression, USA). His record, Get Back to the Land, debuted at #1 on the Euroamericana Chart and his last 4 records have made the US Americna Chart's Top 100 Records of the Year.

The music is a combination of classic California singer/songwriter music with hints of country and soul. It reflects the sound of the many cities and cultures Kamp has become familiar with and the cities he calls his homes away from home. The Big Takeover wrote, “Kamp simply knocks one ball after another out of the park…Saturated in talent and sincerity.”

Ted is also a producer and one of the most in demand bass players in Los Angeles. As a bassist, Ted has been playing with Shooter Jennings since 2004. He has also played with Wilson Phillips, Jessi Colter, Wanda Jackson, Rosie Flores, Billy Ray Cyrus and countless other great artists both on the road and in the studio.

Here are some other great press quotes:

"The ghost of Waylon Jennings is surely smiling down on Kamp - and after one listen, you'll be smiling too."  Performing Songwriter, USA

"A fine songwriter...sounds like the missing son of Tom Russell and Steve Earle."  Le Cri du Coyote, FRANCE

"A singer/songwriter of immense promise."  Starpulse.com, USA
 
"If country music was like old school wrestling, then Ted Russell Kamp would be one of the good guys." SavingCountryMusic.com, USA

“[Kamp]” pays respectful and sensitive homage to classic country sounds of the past. Kamp has absorbed country traditions as something of an outsider, but his deft handling of outlaw narratives, lonesome balladry and brassy soul reveals how completely the south has worked its way under his skin."  Maverick, UK

"Kamp is a talented multi-instrumentalist. His singing and impressive musicianship connects with great compositions, and excellent singing - perfect in it's simplicity."  folkworld.eu, GERMANY
