Ted Russell Kamp Video Premiere – Excessive Desert Fever


One of many issues that makes California distinctive is the breadth of its geographic options. You’ll be able to simply hit the slopes on Olympic high quality runs at Lake Tahoe within the morning after which catch the late afternoon break at Steamer’s Lane in Santa Cruz. It’s barely 100 miles from the glitz and glitter of Hollywood to the desolation of the Mojave Desert. When Ted Russell Kamp moved right here twenty-some years in the past it was to proceed development of his musical profession. Whereas he’s succeeded admirably at that, the place itself received its hooks into him, too.

His adoption of the Golden State turned the point of interest for his new album, California Son (due out March twenty second). The report’s fashion ranges from the laid-back nation rock of Shine On (that includes I See Hawks In LA) to the driving sounds of a Petty-esque Laborious to Maintain. Lyrically, the songs are an autobiographical journey by way of Ted’s life, from locations that impressed him (Firelight, Miracle Mile) to tales of being an expert musician in LA (Ballad of the Troubadour, The Upside to the Downslide).

Considered one of my favourite songs on the report, Excessive Desert Fever, began life a decade in the past as an ode to a lady biker in Joshua Tree. It by no means actually discovered its legs and so when California Son began to coalesce, Kamp and co-writer Ted Wulfers received out their modifying pens and broadened the subject material to embody the enchantment of the whole space. If you recognize Kamp (and who within the LA music group doesn’t?), one factor that rapidly emerges is his indomitable spirit. Whereas the track captures a few of it, the video actually hits it residence. When Kamp sings in regards to the coyotes and cacti, it’s not as one thing to keep away from, however for example of the spirit of the excessive desert that’s so interesting. So with that lead-in, we right here at Twangville are so proud to premiere Ted Russell Kamp’s new video, Excessive Desert Fever.

In regards to the writer:  I’ve truly pushed from Tehatchapee to Tonopah. And I’ve seen Dallas from a DC-9 at evening.
