Independent Canadian performing artists "Flint & Feather" are a free-spirited husband and wife duo who are deeply passionate about connecting with people through folk/roots music, stories, and laughter. Based in Calgary, Alberta, co-members Joal and Lauren Kamps blend storytelling with songwriting to create charming “Rocky Mountain Folk-Pop” songs inspired by Canadian history, rocky mountain folklore, and their own personal journeys. Their original songs are filled with vivid imagery accented by delicate harmonies, and their honest and engaging approach to performance connects with listeners of all ages and backgrounds.
The Kamps first began performing together as Flint & Feather after attending Canada's Music Incubator's 'Artist Entrepreneur Program' in Toronto, as honored Bell Media Prize winners. Soon afterwards Joal and Lauren gigged cross-Canada in partnership with VIA Rail's 'Artists On Board Program', quickly followed by an independently booked 27-performance European Tour. They have since completed another 32-performance European Tour and have performed well over 150 concerts throughout western Canada in the last two years, including a host of performances at music festivals, summer concert series, community events, and the Kamps' personal favourite, intimate house concerts.
Official Showcase artists at the 2019 Southeast Regional Folk Alliance in Chattanooga, TN, and ‘Top 3’ winners of the 2018 Prophets of Music’s 'Emerging Artist Program', the Kamps have been able to record several singles with JUNO Award-winning producer, Russell Broom. Lauren and Joal also attended the 2018 Hornby School for Emerging Artists during a successful four-week tour of western Canada last summer. There, at the Hornby School, the Kamps enjoyed artist mentorship from fellow JUNO Award-winning Member of the Order of Canada, Phil Dwyer, Canada’s premier Jazz musician. Joal and Lauren also attended the prestigious Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity's 'Early Fall Musicians in Residence' program, where they spent five-weeks writing, refining, and rehearsing in preparation for recording and releasing their debut EP in 2019.
