Upcoming JPR Live Session: Andrea von Kampen | Oct 27th @ 2pm

Andrea Von Kampen

Join us on Thursday, Oct 27 at 2pm for a JPR Live Session with singer/songwriter Andrea von Kampen.

Andrea von Kampen grew up in a musical family. She says "music is just what we did." The singer/songwriter who grew up in both Ann Arbor, Michigan and Seward, Nebraska released her debut EP in 2015. She submitted the single Let Me Down Easy, as an entry to the NPR Tiny Desk Contest in 2016 that wound up being shared on All Songs Considered.

Growing up, she says, she absorbed the music of Ella Fitgerald and Etta James and more contemporary pop performers like Paul Simon and James Taylor. You can hear those influences in her thought provoking lyrics, guitar playing, and vocal stylings.

After a string of EPs, her first full length release was 2019's Old Country, after which she began work on That Spell, recorded during the pandemic and released in 2021.

Andrea von Kampen is performing in support of Darlingside on Thursday, October 27 at the SOU Music Recital Hall at 8pm. Find tickets and information here.

You can hear her JPR Live Session at 2pm on October 27 on your FM dial, or at ijpr.org and later find the podcast at Spotify, Stitcher and Apple Podcasts.

Dave Jackson curates the music on JPR's Rhythm and News Service, manages music staff and hosts Open Air, JPR's hand-picked house blend of music, JPR Live Sessions and Open Air Amplified. The exploration of music has been one of his lifelong passions.
