Deemed “a fine singer with guitar work reminiscent of the cult hero Nick Drake” by the New York Times, singer-songwriter, Andrea von Kampen is known for her captivating melodies and introspective storytelling. After releasing a handful of EPs, von Kampen released her independent debut album Old Country in 2019 and her sophomore album That Spell with Fantasy Records in 2021.

In 2022, von Kampen made her acting debut in the independent film, “A Chance Encounter,” distributed by Samuel Goldwyn. Along with starring in the film, she wrote and recorded the film soundtrack which was released by Fantasy Records.

Sharing the stage with an impressive array of artists, including The Tallest Man on Earth, Trampled by Turtles, Watchhouse, Punch Brothers, The Wood Brothers, Bonny Light Horseman, Darlingside, Lief Vollebekk, Dead Horses, and many others, von Kampen has established herself on the road. She has played renowned music festivals such as The Newport Folk Festival and the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival.

von Kampen has spent the past year working on a new record and getting back to the independent approach to music that she previously yearned for. Her third full-length record was recorded in the winter of 2023 by Ben Brodin (Conor Oberst, Justin Townes Earle, First Aid Kit) and arranged by her brother, David von Kampen. This new album, Sister Moon focuses on themes of climate change, the connectedness of nature, and the stories of Richard Powers.

The Sea The Sea is a Nashville based indie folk-pop duo featuring what Bob Boilen (NPR’s All Songs Considered) calls “excellent harmonies” & Huffington Post calls, “Two of the loveliest male-female voices you might ever hear this or any other year.” The group’s 2020 release, Stumbling Home, dubbed “otherworldly” by Rolling Stone marks the duo’s third full-length album, and the duo’s first primary recording / engineering credits on one of their albums, as well as that of co-producers—teaming up with recent Grammy and Tony award winner Todd Sickafoose (Hadestown, Anais Mitchell, Ani DiFranco, Andrew Bird). Previous releases from The Sea The Sea—Love We Are We Love (2014), In the Altogether (2016 / EP), and From The Light (2018)—have been praised by outlets including NPR, American Songwriter, and No Depression, and the animated video for their song “Waiting” sparked viral interest from Buzzfeed and Pitchfork, as well as inclusion at the international TED 2015 conference. The band has garnered features across all music platforms including Apple Music “Best of the Week” and “A-List Singer/Songwriter,” gathering 20+ million streams on Spotify to-date. Live performance broadcast appearances of The Sea The Sea include Mountain Stage, whose host Larry Groce calls them “ready to take their place among the best young male/female duos now performing,” Audiotree, and Paste Music / Daytrotter—recently describing the band as “defined by their infallible vocal harmonies and their unconventional song arrangements. The Sea The Sea is a pop band only in their melodic infectiousness—otherwise they are at their best when subverting conventions.
