Album Notes
Walking’ Shoes is an album of 13 songs, all penned or co-written by Ted, that deals with these familiar themes but his adept use of poetry, humor and honesty and his rich understanding and reinterpretation of Amercian roots music make Walkin’ Shoes a joyous and inspiring ride. Kamp’s voice is full of wisdom (“When you play rock and roll long enough, the blues is what you get” he sings on This Old Guitar), tongue in cheek humor (“I could have played it safe, I could have stayed in bed, but I won’t stop and stay at home, I’ll rest when I’m dead” he sings on “Home Away From Home”) and wistfulness (“I’m not asking for much, just a horizon and a touch, of a hobo’s lullaby” he sings on Highway Whisper.

The music is a combination of classic California singer/songwriter music with hints of country and soul. With nods to Bob Dylan and the Band, Leon Russell and Waylon and Willie, 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.”

Kamp collaborated on Walkin’ Shoes with many talented musicians. Some of the notable co-writes are “Paid By The Mile” (with Sam Morrow), “Written in Stone” and “Highway Whisper” (with Nashville writer and artist, Carey Ott), “Freeway Mona Lisa” (with renowned Dutch singer and songwriter Eric de Vries) and “Home Away From Home” (with Pi Jacobs and Dutch music duo the Spek Brothers).

Ted played many of the instruments on the record himself (electric and acoustic bass, guitars, trumpet, , trombone, Hammond organ and others). Joining him on the album are Brian Whelan on guitars keyboards (Dwight Yoakam, Jim Lauderdale), Jamie Douglass on drums (Shooter Jennings), John Schreffler on electric guitar (Shooter Jennings, Billy Joe Shaver), Eric Heywoodon on pedal steel (The Pretenders, Son Volt), Don Heffington on drums (Bob Dylan, Tina and the B Side Movement) and Dan Wistrom on pedal steel and guitar (Rich Robinson).
