Last month, Lincoln, Nebraska singer-songwriter Andrea von Kampen announced her signing to Fantasy Records and released two new songs “Take Back Thy Gift,” and “Of Him I Love Both Day and Night.” Today, she shares a cover of Maggie Rogers “On + Off.” Andrea von Kampen’s singular voice is one of her most spectacular gifts – potent and clear, emotive and evocative – and on full display with this cover. “She brings fresh energy to traditional folk elements with loads of quiet power,” said RIFF Magazine. The cover is part of a series of YouTube performances von Kampen has been posting and includes both covers and original music.
Andrea von Kampen burst onto the national stage via NPR’s Tiny Desk contest – an opportunity for unsigned talent to win a spot on the famed music discovery series. Though she didn’t ultimately land the prize, she was named as one of the top ten entries, and in the process netted a whole new fanbase. Since then, she’s released a number of EP’s, singles and a self-released debut and found great success with film and television placements due to her intimate and cinematic music. At Fantasy Records, she joins some of her greatest heroes such as Paul Simon and James Taylor and contemporary artists like Nathaniel Rateliff, Valerie June, Natalie Hemby and more.
The Nebraska-raised singer-songwriter is a formidable talent with her deeply felt folk-indebted sound and inquisitive, empathetic lyrics. Andrea excels at connecting the dots between personal experience and the world at large. Her journey so far has been a life immersed by music. The youngest of four children raised in a musical family, Andrea and her siblings all learned instruments as she started playing guitar at a young age. “Music was just what we did,” she remembers. And more music from Andrea von Kampen is on its way later this year.
