"We were completely blown away." -NPR All Songs Considered

With over 7 million Spotify streams and counting, Nebraska-based songwriter Andrea von Kampen has quickly established herself in the recording studio and on the road. Her deft guitar work and intuitive song construction display striking maturity, and her effortless vocal delivery has been praised by Hear Nebraska as "soulful and worn-in."

Andrea has shared the stage with Tall Heights, Esme Patterson, Gregory Alan Isakov, Dead Man Winter, John Moreland, Dead Horses, Gaelyn Lea, and more. She was featured as a finalist in NPR's Tiny Desk Contest, and won Eddie's Attic Open Mic Night in Decatur, GA. Her recent midwest tour included a live session at Audiotree in Chicago. The resulting recording is now available wherever music is sold and streamed, alongside Andrea's studio EPs "Desdemona" and "Another Day."

Norwegian trio playing country/folk.Darling West experienced a spectacular breakthrough in their musical career after the release of their second album, «Vinyl and a Heartache» in 2016. They were awarded a Norwegian Spellemann award (equivalent of Grammy), listed on Norway’s biggest radio channels and appeared on the Top 100 Country charts in the US. They have played shows all over the world – among the highlights are several of Norway’s biggest festivals, SXSW in Texas, Americanafest in Nashville, a tour with Sam Outlaw and a support slot for Lucinda Williams. Those are many highlights. They have also had more than three million plays on Spotify, appearing in several influential playlists.

Always ambitious and restless, the band didn’t rest on their acquired laurels. Contrarily, they headed straight into the studio to record the follow-up to «Vinyl and a Heartache». Darling West’s third album, the self-produced «While I Was Asleep», contains ten new songs, and will be out February 16th, 2018.

Although they have added drums, the band stays true to their sound and still plays the sweet Americana/country/folk they are known for. Moreover, the new album demonstrates a revitalized Darling West, with more drive in the music and even catchier melodies than before.

Darling West’s career continues to be on the up, and 2018 promises to be their biggest year so far. In January they played three shows at the prestigious Eurosonic music festival in the Netherlands and unveiled the album’s fourth single, «Loneliness». A visit to Folk Alliance in Kansas City coincides with the album release date, and provides a fitting arena for the launch of «While I Was Asleep»
