Caamp is an American folk band from Athens, Ohio. The band began as a project between childhood friends Taylor Meier and Evan Westfall, who met at a summer camp while they were middle school students. Meier and Westfall graduated from Upper Arlington High School in 2012. In 2013 Taylor began playing in coffee shops around Athens while studying at Ohio University. They later added bass player Matt Vinson and Joseph Kavalec on the keyboards.
To date, Caamp has released two albums. Their first album, CAAMP, was released in 2016 on Square Roots Records. In 2018, Caamp released a six-song EP. Their second album, By and By, was released in 2019 under Mom + Pop Music. “Peach Fuzz” is a single on the album.
Caamp appeared as an act at the 2019 Mo Pop Festival in Detroit. They also appeared at the 2019 Austin City Limits Music Festival.
In August 2019, Caamp made their debut on the Billboard Emerging Artists chart. By and By debuted at #1 on the Heatseekers Albums chart.
Currently on tour with The Lumineers, we saw them this past weekend when they made a stop in North Charleston, SC to perform during the High Water Festival.
