Seeking Comfort In Soulful New Music During These Hard Times

Solitaire is Kamp’s 13th full album release. It consists of 14 songs recorded mostly alone at home during the last 9 months of the lockdown. The songs and overall feel of the album have a more intimate and singer-songwriter quality. Kamp wanted them to sound more like solo performances, but with some extra spice added, reflecting the loneliness of being at home in quarantine: isolated from friends and the chance to play live. “I think it echoes what a lot of us have been going through this year; the loneliness and doubt as well as the day dreaming and not wanting to give up. I wanted to put these songs out there because we have all been going through similar things.”

Lonesome Highway (IRL)
Kamp is an artist that seldom attempts to reinvent himself, instead sticking to the template that works for him. He’s done exactly that with DOWN IN THE DEN once more, with flying colours. (Declan Culliton)
Alt Country (NL)
Kamp is er goed in geslaagd er een mooi samenhangend geheel van te maken. Veel lekkere groovende songs, maar het hoogtepunt is toch Rainy Day Valentine, waarop Kamp zich zelf begeleidt op een bas (zijn hoofdinstrument) en verder niks. Prachtig! (Hogo Vogel)
PlanetCountry (ITA)
Down In The Den is an album that sanctions the now definitive maturation and confirmation of Ted Russell Kamp in the panorama of the roots music. (Gian Luca Sitta)
TwangriLa (US)
Ultimately, the album’s closing track is Kamp’s hope that listeners will take pieces of the album with them moving forward. I certainly will! (Mae Hunt)
Dirty ROCK (ESP)
Uno de los mejores discos de este 2020. (Carlos Pérez Báez)
ALT Country Forum (NL)
Met een rits aan klasbakken uit zijn vriendenkring in zijn thuisstudio ‘The Den’, waar de albumtitel naar verwijst, trakteert hij ons op een zorgvuldig geconstrueerd paradijs aan smaakvolle en goed doordachte liedjes. (Johan Schoenmakers) 
BluesTownMusic (NL)
Down In The Den’ is een prachtplaat. (Gerrit Schinkel)
Hooked On Music (DE)
Unter dem berühmtem Strich ist "Down In The Den" ein sehr abwechslungsreiches, breit gefächertes Album, das viele Americana affine Hörer verdient hat. (Michael Masuch)
RootsVille (BE)
Ted Russell Kamp is geen bluesman of countrymuzikant of een klassieke singer-songwriter met een akoestische gitaar. Hij is een combinatie van allemaal. (Freddy Vandervelpen)
Rootstime.be (BE)
Wij kijken alvast uit naar zijn aangekondigde optredens in Europa in februari 2022, maar tot dan zullen we vooral blijven genieten van deze veertien alweer uitstekende tracks op het nieuwe album “Solitaire”.
