I have every reason to be content. I live in one of the most affluent and privileged cultures in the history of civilization. I enjoy the freedom to learn, speak, and even sing whatever my heart desires. I have daily access to clean water, wholesome food, and shelter from the elements. I am employed – and I even have the option to change careers at any time I wish. Friends, I am living the dream.

JOAL KAMPS is an award-winning singer-songwriter who is passionate about connecting with people through the Arts. By blending storytelling with songwriting, Joal creates "Rocky Mountain Folk-Pop" songs inspired by the North American landscape and his own personal journey. He has released several full-length albums and enjoys touring throughout Europe, the United Kingdom, and North America.
Before his career in music, Kamps spent four years travelling around the world in search of adventure and the ever-elusive self. He went from sleeping in a car for six weeks one harsh Canadian winter, to walking the runways of Italy as a male model during Men’s Fashion Week, to building and installing BioSand water filters in impoverished communities in El Salvador. From Asia to Europe to Central America, he went wherever the winds would take him. Perhaps that’s what makes his songs resonate with the sojourner in all of us.
Joal, his wife Lauren and their daughter Luna live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada – located just east of the Rocky Mountains: where he finds inspiration for much of his music, and coincidentally, camps! Joal spends his free time hiking in search of the next great swimming hole, or recharging his creative spirit beneath the boughs of a white spruce – his guitar and songbook always within arms reach.
