    Alberta’s own singin’, songwritin’, storytellin’ sensation Joal Kamps is returning to Perks Coffeehouse! This is a free show, but as a working musician donations are appreciated. Joal will also have CDs and other merchandise for sale. Joal’s debut album Sojourner won an Album of the Year Award at the 2012 Western Canadian Music Awards. His first single Take My World Apart went on to win a Song of the Year Award in the 2012 Independent Music Awards. Receiving extremely positive reviews from critics and industry peers alike, Sojourner helped launch Joal into the creative fore of his blossoming career as an up-and-coming Canadian folk musician. In April 2014, Kamps released his sophomore Alberta-inspired album called Heads Is East, Tails Is West – a touching collection of storytelling songs influenced by Alberta’s rich history, Joal’s personal journey, and Rocky Mountain folklore. The album debuted at #2 on Earshot’s National Folk/Roots/Blues Charts and received funding support from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and FACTOR Canada. To learn more about Joal, check out his website: www.joalkamps.com We have limited space so be sure to let us know you're attending on our Facebook page!
