Al Camp is a very unique and charismatic man. He has been
Blessed with a multitude of outstanding attributes and talents,
Beginning with his natural good looks and charming personality.
Al's predominant talent is his music. His voice is smooth and
silky, as he strums his guitar and sings his emotional songs.
One is drawn in by the hypnotic tamper of his voice and the
the emotionally compelling lyrics. His music is not to be denied.
His youth was very traumatic, the story of which will be available
in a book and film at some future juncture. When anyone knows
about the trauma that was previlent in a young boy’s life, such as
was the case with Al, it's no wonder that there is the depth of
emotion that emenates from his songs and his voice.
As a young man, he sought solice and refuge in his music. He
began to write and play at the tender age of eight. His guitar
playing was unorthodox, in that he played just the opposite from
what was the norm for most guitar players. He played
"backwards". He fingered with his right hand and strummed
with his left hand; thereby developing a very unique and unusual
His first public appearance was at the age of twelve, when he
played for a wedding reception at Pastilles restaurant, in Basking
Ridge, New Jersey. By this time, Al Camp knew that his life was
meant to be involved with music, and he began his life long
journey in his chosen field.
He went on to play with Jimmy and The Starlight's and appeared
with the Coasters at the Seafood Playhouse in New York City.
He later appeared once again with Jimmy and The Starlight's at
Ivy Park, New Jersey, on the Joe Franklin Show, with an audience
of over five thousand people.
From this juncture, his career began to blossom. He teamed up
with producer Tony Camillo. Together they did a remake of
"The Same Old Song". There was a video involved, which was a
unique and professional presentation. This opened many doors
for Al Camp, and he began a series of appearances through
the tri-state area.
The many appearances, coupled with the saturated radio play,
put Al Camp's; "The Same Old Song", on the Billboard charts.
At the height of Al Camp's rise to stardom, his backer, Frank
Marchello suddenly died. This was a devastating blow to Al on
many levels. Not only did Al lose a great friend and confidant,
but he lost his backer as well.
But now, Al is back and this time there will be no stopping him,
Keep your eyes and ears open for the re-birth of the one and
only; Al Camp.
