Joal Kamps is a homegrown free spirit. Named after his grandfathers John and Albert, who both immigrated from the Netherlands as young men, adventure is in his blood – and it is very apparent.

Kamps spent four years traveling the world before he settled into his folk-pop storytelling in song. Drawing from his globetrotting background and utilizing his European work ethic, Kamps has accomplished more in the last three years than most bands accomplish in a decade: he has written, recorded, produced and independently released three studio albums; signed a North American distribution agreement; received a career development grant; completed numerous tours across Western Canada; and has been invited to, and performed at, many music festivals and conferences in the United States, Europe and Canada – all as a self-taught independent artist no less!

Joal currently resides in Calgary, Alberta – located just East of the Canadian Rockies, where he finds inspiration for his music – and coincidentally, camps! He spends his free-time hiking in search of the next great swimming hole, or recharging his creative spirit beneath the boughs of a white spruce – guitar and songbook always within arms reach.

'Sojourner' (2011), 'the RED EP' (2009) and 'Waiting' (2008) are all available for purchase online at Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, as well as at all live performances.
