Lydia Luce & Andrea Von Kampen


Andrea von Kampen is an independent folk singer-songwriter based in Lincoln, Nebraska, whose effortless vocal delivery has been praised by Hear Nebraska as “soulful and worn-in.” With the successful release of two EP’s, Another Day (2015) and Desdemona (2016), a Christmas EP (2016), an Audiotree Live album (2017), and her debut full-length album Old Country (2019), Andrea has quickly established herself in the recording studio and on the road. She has shared the stage with artists such as Tall Heights, Ira Wolf, Dead Man Winter, The Brother Brothers, Dead Horses, Darling West and many more. 

Old Country, Andrea von Kampen’s debut full-length album, was released on February 8th, 2019. The album was recorded and mastered in Nebraska and features exclusively Nebraska-based musicians. Inspiration for Andrea’s songs often come from literature, art, and nature; in particular the literature and nature of Nebraska and the Midwest. The title track, Old Country, is based on the book “My Ántonia” by Nebraska author Willa Cather.
Her single, Portland, received notable attention including features on The Bluegrass Situation, Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music. Additionally, Amazon Music Canada featured Portland in their ‘Top Songs of 2018’ playlist. In a review of Portland, Ear To The Ground Music said, “It’s not so much about where you’re going, but that you want to get away. That emotion of “idealistic escapism” is one that listeners can all connect with, whether or not we want to go to Oregon or somewhere else. The inflection in von Kampen’s vocal has the conviction of a gospel track and the sincerity of a Dylan folk ballad.”

Andrea von Kampen first appeared in the public eye with her submission of Let Me Down Easy into the 2016 Tiny Desk Contest. Within 24 hours of submission, NPR Music, All Songs Considered tweeted her video as the featured artist of the day, saying “we were completely blown away.” Ultimately, Andrea finished the competition as a top ten finalist, which lead to increased popularity of her EP, Another Day, specifically her song Trainsong. Since then, her EPs have amassed millions of streams on Spotify and continue to grow.


On her new album Florida Girl, Lydia Luce offers up a body of work graced with all the transformative beauty of water color, at turns delicate, dreamlike, and instantly potent in its emotional realism. The second full-length from the Fort Lauderdale-born singer/songwriter,Florida Girl matchesitsluminous form of indie-folk with an in-depth examination of Luce’s inner life, exploring everything from mortality to body image to the ineffable intricacy of human connection. As she bares her souland unburdens her heart, Luce slowly embraces her own infinite complexity—ultimately arriving atthe self-possessed state of mind that inspired the album’s title.For follow-up to her 2021 acclaimed debutDark River, Luce joined forces with her longtime friendsand bandmatesAnthony da Costa (Joy Williams and Michaela Anne) and Aaron Steele (Joy Oladokun,Portugal. The Man) to deliver her mostintuitively realized and imaginatively composed work to date.Luce grew up in a strict musical household where her mother was a professional conductor and didnot present learning the violin as a choice. After graduating from Berklee College of Music, she brieflyworked at world-music label Smithsonian Folkways Records, before relocating to Nashville andestablishing herself as an in-demand session musician playing viola/violinfor legendslikeDolly Partonand Willie Nelsonand hip-hop superstar Eminem..Luce also foundedLockeland Strings—acommunity arts organization and showcase of local artists (which included country superstar KaceyMusgraves) accompanied by string quartet arrangements
