Minimalist in design but heartfelt in delivery, Caamp are an acoustic guitar and banjo indie folk group from Columbus, Ohio.
Childhood friends Evan Westfall (banjo) and Taylor Meier (lead vocals, guitar) grew up together in the Columbus suburb of Upper Arlington, but they didn't begin playing and writing music together until 2012. After adopting the name Caamp in 2015, the duo delivered their self-produced, self-titled debut LP a year later, quickly finding viral success on streaming platforms. Thanks to some key tours and the release of subsequent singles like "Hey Joe," "Common Man," and "26," Caamp earned a devoted following who streamed their tracks up into the millions. Westfall and Meier returned in early 2018 with the Boys (Side A) EP, augmenting a few of the new songs with electric guitar and a more robust sound. The Boys (Side B) EP followed a few months later. The group became a trio when they added bass player Matt Vinson before recording their next album, By & By, which was released in July 2019 by indie label Mom + Pop Music. ~ Timothy Monger
