Started by boyhood friends Evan Westfall and Taylor Meier, CAAMP came to life in Athens, Ohio. Taylor began penning and playing original songs at coffee shops around Athens in 2013. Evan moved down a couple of years later and together in a hazy attic, enjoying light beers, they would find the heartfelt sound that became CAAMP. Since independently releasing their self-titled first record in 2016, they have climbed the Spotify charts, headlined the US, purchased denim jackets and added a bass- playing buddy, Matt Vinson– who also enjoys light beers and denim. With the upcoming release of their third album “By and By,” the Ohioan trio has high hopes and no reservations.

Just beginning to get into this band. So far I’m thinking a little bit of a Avett Brothers meets the Grateful Dead kind of vibe. Their most recent album is getting some play on the satellite radio station I listen Here’s a live performance of one of the songs I really like. Ohio boys making beautiful noise

Its a song that hits my emotions during this fall weather. The tender swaying of the guitars and vocals make this an easy-listen. I think the sound demonstrated in this single could make a great album. 

Caamp formed in Columbus, Ohio when Taylor Meier and Evan Westfall met and bonded over a shared love of music and of their home state, specifically the inspiration they culled from the Midwest lives they grew up in. The two began writing and performing and quickly grew a rabid fan base. A self-titled 2016 debut album and single “Vagabond” rapidly began to take flight across streaming platforms and took the band to new heights. By and By, their upcoming sophomore album, marked the first time the duo recorded with outside help. Block and Jenkins helped expand their sonic horizons and through the recording process, Caamp also brought on a third and permanent member, Matt Vinson.

With the announce of Caamp, we are excited to give you the first single off Mom + Pop Records called, “Penny, Heads Up” and the announcement of their sophomore album “By and By”.
