Campdogzz have earned a devoted following in their home-base of Chicago and the surrounding area, their music deeply evocative of the seasonally bleak, yet spirited Midwest. The five-piece band is led by Jess Price, whose haunting voice and songs are propelled by driving rhythms and insistent dual guitars. Arriving in the city in 2008 with the ambition to be a filmmaker, she credits a bitter Chicago winter with the drive which would eventually lead to the band's creation, her background filming with bands giving her the freedom to play and experiment.
The band has opened for Big Thief, Sam Evian, Ohmme, Tim Kasher and others. They were recently seen in the first season of the Netflix series, “Easy,” recorded a popular Audiotree live video session, and self-released “Riders in the Hills of Dying Heaven” in 2015. (You can check it out on Bandcamp or the band's SoundCloud.)
"Campdogzz are poised to come aggravate your blues, bang your head, and remind you where you are on the long road away from home."
