Hello! Nathan Hamilton here inviting you to venture a listen to my newest album Beauty, Wit & Speed.
With this new record I wanted to address the “acceleration” of our lives as well as explore how we consume technology and how it in turn, consumes us. While in the past I have written about oulaws and barfights, my days of late are more realistically filled with swim meets and car seats. The seemingly ordinary and mundane often holds a galley of riches. I sought a new path in the familiar, yet still challenging terrain of love and loss that we each experience in some form or another.
The album was co-produced with engineer Britton Beisenherz (Monahans, Milton Mapes, Doug Burr, Seryn) at Ramble Creek Studios in Austin,Texas. A fantastic cast of musicians took part, including Kevin Russell (The Gourds) on mandolin, Jeff Lofton on trumpet, Greg Vanderpool (Monahans) and Amy Cook on vocals and so many more. The result is a collection of what I believe to be some of my strongest songs yet, set to an oft times lush and sometimes sparsely lit soundscape.
I hope you will join me on a journey through...Beauty, Wit and Speed.
With the eye of a short-story writer, Nathan Hamilton pens songs sharp with detail and rich in imagery to create rugged slices of timeless and articulate Americana. Vocally he brings to mind a slightly more ragged Lyle Lovett, which fits well with his muscular songs. He proves adept whether handling quiet folk numbers or gritty, growling rock. Nathan Hamilton was born and raised in Abilene,Texas. He currently resides in Austin. He has been performing music professionally for 16 years. During that time he has released five albums on his own and two as a member of the Good Medicine Band (aka Sharecroppers). Hamilton was a winner of the 2000 Kerrville New Folk Award and was a Top Five Finalist in the 2008 Independent Music Awards for songwriting.
