Campe Candle is two friends from Philadelphia trek through the crossroads of life with their music and a smile. She is Hetepsa. He is Nu Ra. They are Camp Candle.
The duo met at W.B Saul High School of Agricultural Sciences, a school with a farm, located in the heart of Philly. Throughout the years, the "farm school" became an unusual and often therapeutic outlet away from the decadence that plagues the city streets. Most city folk don't have the opportunity to do something outside of themselves and their surroundings. Camp Candle wishes to share that feeling that comes from living beyond the limits of a situation through their music, because not everyone can turn to landscaping and tending to sheep as an outlet.
Camp Candle draws their influences from many places. You can find hints of synth pop, hip hop, indie rock, soul, and many other styles of music. Nu Ra, who does 1/2 of the production starts the instrumentation. When Hetepsa brings her flavor, she moves the music along with her lyrics and voice. When it's all melted together, it can only be described as Camp Candle.
Camp Candle plans on touring and creating a genuine relationship with all who enjoy their music.
The cassette player in Nu Ra’s new car has been bumping a lot of 80’s disco and R&B. He infused his recent indulgence into this track, taking his children’s fervor for Michael Jackson into consideration. Hetepsa met him in the same realm with the lyrics and melody to complement. The guitar spoke for her and Hetepsa spoke for them, voicing to parody Nu Ra’s desire to pay homage to that era in the music video.
