Poor Man's Paradise


A workingmans musician with a thorough grasp of his craft, Ted Russell Kamp, longtime bassist for Shooter Jennings, comes into his own as a solo artist and songwriter of note with this new CD, the follow-up to his widely praised previous release Divisadero, which was named one of the Top 40 Americana CDs of 2007. This new album is a juicy gumbo of country, Southern-fried rock and soul in the style of Kamps lifelong inspirations J.J. Cale, The Band, and Kris Kristofferson. Offbeat characters and interesting turns of phrase permeate the discs 11 tracks, all written or co-written by Kamp. Some of the top names in alt-country dropped in to record basic tracks with Ted in Los Angeles including guitarists Tony Gilkyson and Kenny Vaughan, drummer Don Heffington, Marvin Etzioni on mandolin, Waylon Jennings/Highwaymen pedal steel player Robby Turner, and Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash front-man Mark Stuart. Kamps own instrumental prowess is heard on guitar, mandolin, bass, keyboards, lap steel, accordion, trombone and trumpet.
