Hello again everyone,
Things have been good here in Southern CA. I hope they’ve been good where you are.

New recording – Ted and Ted Help Support the Red Cross of Oklahoma
I recorded the classic song ‘Tulsa Time’ with an old friend of mine Ted Wulfers (www.tedwulfers.com). We are donating 100% of the proceeds to The Oklahoma Red Cross. Even though it’s not in the news anymore, the people of OK could still use your help and are still dealing with a lot of chaos and tragedy. I have been through Oklahoma many times and have some great friends in the Oklahoma City area which was hit so hard by the tornadoes. Please check it out at http://www.tedandted.bandcamp.com/
In other news, I am now in the process of building a great home studio. I will post pictures of the construction soon and I am excited to get some music made right at home. I will be back in the studio finishing up a few records I will be producing in the next few months too. One is for the great L.A, singer and songwriter Funky Jenn Gibbons. I will also be working on a track for the great British singer/songwriter Graeme Clark and I will continue working on my next record too. Very exciting.
Here are some great new Interviews/Performance videos from a Live-in-the-Studio session we did called the Blackwing Sessions. This is some of the highest quality stuff I have ever done. I hope you enjoy it. And this may become a Ted DVD. More news on this soon……
Another Love Song
And here is one of my favorite reviews of all time:
“If country music was like old school wrestling, then Ted Russell Kamp would be one of the good guys.” SavingCountryMusic.com
I appreciate you all caring about me and my music.
