Amidst life’s journeys, there’s no reason to travel in a world devoid of music; especially when there are bands like Kamphire Collective, an eclectic group of men with backgrounds as diverse as their Rock, Funk, Reggae, Latin, Jazz and Hip-Hop influences. Kamphire Collective began its own journey in the early months of 2005. A few of the members enjoyed playing together in a reggae band, but some things must come to an end. For some of the members though, ending the music was not an option. From that desire to continue creating music, Kamphire Collective was born.
In just a few short years they have gained quite a local buzz, resulting in some very precious media coverage.
“There is no local band like Kamphire Collective, which also happens to be one of the only Boise groups to build a following in 2006. Coincidence?” Michael Deeds, The Idaho Statesman
Kamphire Collective takes what you think you know and turns it on its head Amy Atkins, Boise Weekly
“KC’s sound and style are simply complex and unmatched. An organic blend of instruments with smooth rhymes full of reason allow this band to transcend mere hip-hop.” Amber Fuger, Moonshine Ink
In 2006, Kamphire Collective took top honors at the Quest for the Best, a local event showcasing the area’s top bands. Following this win they found themselves booked on the first ever Honda Ski Tour in early 2007. They were the only band on the tour with no label representation. They didn’t even have an album! The tour featured amazing national acts like Hinder, Three Days Grace, G-Love and Special Sauce, Wailers w/ DJ Logic, Swollen Members, Elan, Don Carlos, Jillian Ann, Sean Paul, Tommy Lee, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Blackalicious and Finger Eleven.
Kamphire Collective has shared the stage with countless other musicians including The Alkaholics, the PirkQlaters, Psyche Origami, the Chicharones, Tre Hardson (Pharcyde), Pigeon John, Swollen Members, Murs, La Symphony, Afro Man, Art Hodge, Steve Fulton, The Coup, Lyrics Born, Cut Chemist, Kool Keith, Elan, George Clinton & the P-Funk Allstars, and Fishbone.
