Album Notes
Get back To The Land debuted at #1 on the Euroamericana Chart - January 2011 and reached the top 25 on the Americana Music Association Chart. Ted Russell Kamp, a workingman's musician with a thorough grasp of his craft, proves himself as a solo artist and songwriter of note, as this record follows on the heels of the widely praised Poor Man's Paradise which was named one of the Top 100 Americana releases of '08 and Divisadero which was in the top 40 of 2007.  

As  Shooter Jennings long time bass player and collaborator, Ted Russell Kamp wrote Jennings’ #1 Texas hit  “Steady At The Wheel”, which stayed in the top spot for 8 weeks. His own music is a juicy gumbo of country, Southern-fried rock and soul in the style of Kamp's lifelong inspirations J.J. Cale, The Band, and Kris Kristofferson. Kamp wrote or co-wrote all 13 songs on Get Back to the Land, with a storyteller's flair for offbeat characters, interesting turns of phrase and a sense of realism that is grounded in honesty and soulfulness. 

There is a great feature on Ted and Get Back to the Land on the No Depression website. Writer Adam Sheets remarks " (Ted’s) also following the tradition of great troubadours such as Guy Clark and, in more recent times, James McMurtry. Songs such as "Down at the 7th Heaven" on his new album or "Dixie" and "Player Piano" on his last album Poor Man's Paradise display a keen poetic sensibility reminiscent of the Texas country scene and the mark of a born storyteller.” 

Praise for Get Back to the Land:

"Kamp simply knocks one ball after another out of the park. Clichés become new ideas in Kamp’s mind (see the excellent “Half Hearted” for a perfect example), melodies find a comforting home in his hands, strings and horns and the singing couldn’t be any more personable and heartfelt. Saturated in talent and sincerity, Get Back To the Land is nothing more than good music done right."- Michael Toland, The Big Takeover

"The long-time Shooter Jennings’ sideman is an accomplished solo artist in his own right, responsible for a number of Shooter’s most-loved tunes (Steady At The Wheel anyone?) as well as a handful of stellar rock-leaning country records that Nashville wouldn’t dare sniff.  His latest, Get Back To The Land, is his most diverse to date and boosts a nice list of guest artists, incluing Angelo Moore (Fishbone), Eric Heywood (Son Volt, Ray LaMontagne), Tony Gilkyson (Lone Justice, X) and Robby Turner (Waylon Jennings and the Highwaymen). Sadly, the record won’t hit American shores until May 10th, but European fans are snapping it up like day-old pastries as witnessed by his #1 position on the Euro-Americana charts this past January."
- Richard Luftmensch Morgan, My Old Kentucky Blog 

"...(Get Back To The Land) opens almost brilliantly - ‘California Wildflower’ has echoes of the Byrds, Gram, Ryan Adams and a chorus that blooms like the titular flowers."- Americana UK 

"Like many artists, Kamp has a “day gig” that pays the bills and supports his musical exploration. Unlike many artists, Kamp’s day gig doesn’t involve an office but instead finds him playing bass with Shooter Jennings. Left to his own devices, however, Kamp is a stand-out songwriter and musician. His latest release overflows with confidence and swagger, as the Southern boogie of this track clearly demonstrates."- Mayer Danzig, Twangville
