In less than a month, Camp Bisco will be returning to its home in Scranton, Pennsylvania for its 17th year of rock and electronic music madness. While there are a number of artists gracing the stages of Montage Mountain, many do not stand out with the same level of reputation and talent that up-and-coming producer Jerry Folk has gathered up in the past two years. The 20-year-old Norwegian artist is no stranger to releasing some of the finest, funky, first-rate tunes. Just last year, he released his impressive remix of Oh Wonder’s “Lose It” that not only catapulted his name into the music sphere but introduced his seductive fusion of nu-disco and deep house grooves to the masses. Now, almost a year later since the release of his remix, Jerry Folk has continued to grow his fan base due to his persistent efforts to supply brand-new music and high-energy performances, which can be experienced at this year’s Camp Bisco festival.
The Kids Tape Project
Jerry Folk’s most recent project The Kids Tape is his latest effort to showcase his continuously evolving style. The young artist has been releasing a new track the second week of every month, while also supplying a couple of music videos to go along with the project.
The Kids Tape first single, “I’m Honestly Not A Gangster,” dropped this past May, and since then has been followed by two other striking singles, revealing a fantastic creative direction that Jerry has developed in the past couple of months that is sure to shine through in his Camp Bisco performance.
He’s A Genre-defying Genius
At the mere age of 20, Jerry has seen more success than most people his age could even dream of having. What makes Jerry Folk stand out the most in the vast field of up-and-coming producers is his truly inimitable style of either future bass or deep house mixed with nu disco, funk, and R&B. This eclectic mixing of genres has given him a very unique standing, and it’s been refreshing to see the young artist grow into a sound that is both distinct and limitless.
He’s Headlining His First North American Tour
In his effort to bring his funky, deep house tunes to more parts of the world, Jerry Folk is currently headlining his first North American tour. The first leg of the tour kicked off with a standout set on this year’s Do Lab Stage at Coachella, and since then he’s made his way all across the west coast and Canada. Each stop so far has drawn eager crowds into packed venues, further solidifying Jerry Folk’s elevating status and his music’s highly-accessible appeal.
His Catalog of Music is One of the Most Impressive Collections We’ve Seen.
With his remix repertoire alone, Jerry Folk’s artistic touch shows a production skillset that is well beyond his years. His reimaginings of tracks from ZZ Ward, Chromeo, Suga Suga, Years & Years, and Oh Wonder are outstanding examples of his pioneering musical talents, with the majority of them collecting well over a million streams on SoundCloud. Now, as his remixes have taken off across the web, Jerry Folk has begun to focus in on his own original pieces this year. His first single of the year, “To My Soul,” was an expertly crafted blend of R&B, jazz, and house music, and kicked off the young producer’s year of new tunes that are sure to have you moving towards the dance floor.
He’ Been Killing the Festival Circuit
We’re not the only ones who are witnessing Jerry Folk’s best year yet. Within the past couple of months, he’s been opening up for the renowned superduo ODESZA on their In Return world tour, and has drawn in packed crowds with performances at some of the biggest U.S. festivals. His performance on The Do Lab Stage at Coachella was one for the books, followed up by intimate gathering of good vibes in Alabama’s Hangout Festival. From one coast to the next, Jerry Folk’s performances have been highly celebrated across the country, and you can expect only his best at this year’s Camp Bisco.
