Customer Reviews

Country, country rock and blues with a loose ‘70s vibe

Ted Russell Kamp is an L.A. session player and regular bass player for Shooter Jennings who’s released a string of solo albums that began with 1996’s jazz session Dedications. Nine years later he returned as a front man with a whole new sound that combined roots and rock. The rustic inflections saw him through NorthSouth, Nashville Fineline, Divisadero and now his latest, Poor Man’s Paradise. Kamp sings in a voice similar to Rodney Crowell, but the loose vibe of his music has its roots in the 1970s, the free-swinging twang of Nashville, the laid-back cool of California country-rock, and the Southern inflections of Florida’s Criteria Studios and Alabama’s Muscle Shoals. He even adds a one-man horn section of overdubbed trumpet and trombone on a few tracks. Kamp writes frequently on matters of the heart, including departed lovers still too close to be forgotten, couples staring at one another across a chasm of faith, and the contentedness of having your soul mate by your side. In league with his talents as a multi-instrumental, Kamp’s a genre-hopping songwriter, offering up southern rock (“Long Distance Man”), talking blues (“Ballad of That Guy,” with Marvin Etzioni picking mandolin) and blue-eyed soul (“Never Gonna Do You Wrong”), in addition to country-rock. Though he’s best served by the ballads and mid-tempo numbers, just about everything here is nicely crafted and worth a spin. [©2009 hyperbolium dot com]

Ted is the man!!!

When he’s not busy touring and recordingwith Shoooter Jennings & The .357’s, Ted Russell Kamp has been holding his own as a solo singer-songwriter. His latest album, ”Poor Man’s Paradise” is a blend of country, blues, folk & classic rock that is a wonderful addition to his already impressive recording catalog. A true road dog, Ted notes that this album was recorded on the “...tour bus and countless hotel rooms across America...” Standout tracks like “Long Distance Man”, “Dixie”, “Poor Man’s Paradise” and “Old Folks Blues” show Ted’s musical range and will have you hoping that his tour bus rolls through a town near you soon.
