Before the pandemic, Ted Russell Kamp traveled the world playing about 200 shows a year, playing his own blend of roots and Americana music as well as playing bass player for Shooter Jennings. He also began working as producer in his home studio—The Den – where he has now produced numerous well-received albums for tons of artists. When the pandemic hit, it was to The Den where Kamp retreated, crafting the songs that would become his latest (and 13th!) record, 'Solitaire.' The 14 songs, and overall feel of the album, have a more intimate, singer-songwriter quality. Kamp wanted them to sound more like solo performances, but with some extra spice added, reflecting the loneliness of being at home in quarantine: isolated from friends and the opportunity to play live.
