Andrea Von Kampen

Deemed “a fine singer with guitar work reminiscent of the cult hero Nick Drake” by the New York Times, singer-songwriter, Andrea von Kampen is known for her captivating melodies and introspective storytelling. After releasing a handful of EPs, von Kampen released her independent debut album “Old Country” in 2019 and her sophomore album “That Spell” with Fantasy Records in 2021.

In 2022, von Kampen made her acting debut in the independent film, “A Chance Encounter,” distributed by Samuel Goldwyn. Along with starring in the film, she wrote and recorded the film soundtrack which was released by Fantasy Records.

Sharing the stage with an impressive array of artists, including The Tallest Man on Earth, Trampled by Turtles, Watchhouse, Punch Brothers, The Wood Brothers, Bonny Light Horseman, Darlingside, Lief Vollebekk, Dead Horses, and many others, von Kampen has established herself on the road. She has played renowned music festivals such as The Newport Folk Festival and the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival.

von Kampen has spent the past year working on a new record and getting back to the independent approach to music that she previously yearned for. Her third full-length record was recorded in the winter of 2023 by Ben Brodin (Conor Oberst, Justin Townes Earl, First Aid Kit) and arranged by her brother, David von Kampen. This new album, “Sister Moon” focuses on themes of climate change, the connectedness of nature, and the stories of Richard Powers.
