"A stellar combination of beautiful music, harmonies, and heart-warming stories. Alberta is lucky to claim them as our own."
- Karen Evans, The Calgary Stampede's Window on the West
Flint & Feather (Joal and Lauren Kamps) blend storytelling with songwriting to create charming 'Rocky Mountain Folk-Pop' songs inspired by Canadian history, rocky mountain folklore, and their own personal journeys. The Kamps' original folk songs are filled with vivid imagery, playful humour, and delicate harmonies – and their honest and engaging approach to performance connects with listeners of all ages and backgrounds.
Official international showcase artists at the 2019 Southeast Regional Folk Alliance (USA), Flint & Feather are also winners of the Prophets of Music Society's 'Emerging Artist Program', participants of the 'Hornby School for Emerging Artists', and prestigious 'Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity' musicians in residence alumni. Most recently the Kamps' have been recording their newest material with producer, Paul Zacharias of Wheelhouse Sound in High River, AB, and will be releasing singles throughout 2021.
Joal and Lauren have further enjoyed recording with JUNO Award-winning producers, Colin Linden (Blackie and the Rodeo Kings) and Russell Broom (Jann Arden, Sam Roberts, Ian Tyson), as well as local producers, Mark Troyer of Evergreen Sound (Calgary, AB) and Jason Hofer of Refinery Record Room (Bragg Creek, AB).
