Our Story

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 right in 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 so 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, connecting with thousands of people, and creating a genuine relationship with all who enjoy their music.
