After an illustrious music career, singer-songwriter Paul van Kampen has taken his introspective and thought provoking songs back to the basics. Telling beautiful stories with just a piano and a voice
Calgary based singer-songwriter Paul van Kampen is best known for his home grown projects including SAVK, The Northwest Passage, The Magnetic North and Beija Flor, all who have garnered critical acclaim (WCMA nomination for best pop album - Constellations, short listed for the Peak Performance Prize - SAVK, Top Record of 2012, Mike Bell - Calgary Herald). While the bands have been a source of great music, friends, and life changing moments, van Kampen has taken to exploring his music in a deeper, more personal way, and with a more intimate connection to the listener. Music is more than bells and whistles. There's something to be said for the sincerity of a gorgeous melody, delicately played on a piano with the gentleness of experienced hands, and joined by the truthfulness of an honest voice. Van Kampen's songs resonate with people looking for a little more in their music.
