Ted Russell Kamp - "Get Back To The Land" Due Out May 10th!

A workingman's musician with a thorough grasp of his craft, Ted Russell Kamp, comes into his own as a solo artist and songwriter of note with his new CD Get Back To The Land. It is the follow up to 2007's widely praised Divisadero, which was named one of the Top 40 Americana CDs of 2007 and which No Depression called "terrific" and 2008's Poor Man's Paradise, which was named one of the Top 100 Americana CDs of the year.

Get Back To The Land 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, with a storyteller's flair for offbeat characters, interesting turns of phrase and a sense of realism that is grounded in honesty and soulfulness. 

Aside from making his own music, Ted has also been the longtime bassist for Shooter Jennings, writing many of the songs for Shooter including 'Steady At The Wheel' which went #1 in Texas for 8 weeks.
