About Ted Russell Kamp:
Ted Russell Kamp is a Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. Well known as the long time bassist and collaborator for Shooter Jennings, No Depression Magazine calls Ted “one of the most underrated songwriters in the business today… a born storyteller… in the tradition of great troubadours like Guy Clark.”
Introduced in the 1930’s but discontinued in the mid 90’s, the Blackwing 602 was the pencil of choice for Grammy and Academy Award winning artists. After demand sent prices of a single Blackwing pencil up to $40, the Blackwing was brought back in two distinct models, the Palomino Blackwing for artists and composers, and the Palomino Blackwing 602 for writers and everyday users.
