Editorial Reviews

Longtime Shooter Jennings bassist comes into his own as a solo artist of note with this release, which was named one of the top 40 Americana CDs of 2007. A juicy gumbo of country, southern-fried rock, and soul in the style of Kamp's lifelong inspirations JJ Cale, The Band, and Kris Kristofferson. Top names in alt-country contributed, including guitarists Tony Gilkyson and Kenny Vaughan, drummer Don Heffington, Marvin Etzioni on mandolin, pedal steel player Robby Turner, and Bastard Sons Of Johnny Cash frontman Mark Stuart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep Roots and Elegant Blossoms June 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Ted Russell Kamp's "Poor Man's Paradise" is all about people in motion--leaving and coming back, shedding yesterday for tomorrow, finding the way from loss to celebration--and always, always the restless search for self and home.

Kamp wrote or cowrote every song on the album, and his voice with its overtones of loneliness, longing, and invitation hits the center of every target his music aims for. He's a storyteller with an inventory of lost ladies found and lost again, tales of the road life. His stories come from deep roots--American and blue, first person, lonesome, and true--filled with a lover's promises and regrets.

Even in the stand-still songs, the impulse for movement shows up in lines like the beautiful "...she's a wild rose that grows between the railroad tracks."

Drawing in an impressive cast of accomplished musicians and vocalists, Kamp delivers in this album, as in all his previous solo work, solace for the heart and soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ted is the man!!! April 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD
When he's not busy touring and recording with Shooter 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Country, country rock and blues with a loose `70s vibe February 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD
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]
