JOAL KAMPS @ Cafe Deux Soleils
2096 Commercial Dr
By blending storytelling with songwriting, Joal creates music that he describes as “Rocky Mountain Folk-Pop.” Joal has already released several albums, won awards for his songwriting, and performed numerous tours and festival dates throughout western Canada, the northwest United States, and in Europe – all as a self-taught independent artist.
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 and his wife, Lauren, have recently returned from a successful month long tour through The Netherlands, and now find themselves touring through beautiful British Columbia in support of Joal’s second Western Canadian Music Award nomination.
