Fresh from performing on the Busking Stage at Bluesfest, Byron Bay in 2011 after securing a spot from this year’s Busking Over Byron comp, Paul Appelkamp is residing in the hills on the Northern NSW coast and preparing to record and release his debut album due out later this year.
Appelkamp grew up around many ways of life. His travelled upbringing and four years of Politics and Cultural Studies at University led to a deep appreciation for many cultures, one that drives his music.
Blending modern styles with a tribal feel, his mixture of old and new, East and West, reflects his personal view of the world – as one experience shared by all.
Appelkamp’s entertaining live shows have gained him a grass-roots following across Australia. Using several instruments including guitars, kalimba, stomp-box and more, the music is strengthened to its core by intriguing stories and a voice that can raise the roof.
