B. HAMILTON ANNOUNCE NEW LP ‘NOTHING AND NOWHERE’, SHARE VIDEO FOR “NORTH SAN JUAN”
By Neil Ferguson
What started as a bedroom project in 2010 for songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist Ryan Christopher Parks (whose collaborative track with Boots Riley “OYAHYTT” features heavily in Riley’s 2018 film “Sorry to Bother You”) with the addition of Parks’ good friends Andrew Macy on bass, and Raj Kumar Ojha on drums (Once and Future Band, Shannon Shaw Band, Howlin’ Rain), B. Hamilton has since become one of Oakland, California’s staple rock-and-roll bands. With Parks’ moody, atmospheric guitar riffs and lyrical ability to encapsulate entire characters and scenes within a few short minutes, there is a decidedly driven, cinematic feel to B. Hamilton’s sound.
B. Hamilton’s fourth album Nothing and Nowhere is an album to drive late at night to, windows down, pounding along with Ojha and Macy’s urgent, yet steadfast tempos and rhythms on the roof of the car to stay awake. Parks’ vocals and guitar take us over potholed, winding terrain that has lead many from adolescence into adulthood. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]
