With there debut cd, “Paintings on the wall”, gathering airplay from across the southeast and there latest album, “What you make of it”, hitting the top 10 on the Soundscan charts on the week of Sept. 9th 2008, for most records sold on it’s release week, Hamelin has made a name for themselves through radio, festivals, opening for national acts, showcasing at conferences across the south and up the east coast, and touring across the southeast to reach out to new, and hangout with there, wide and uplifting fans.
“I don’t know of many other local bands that makes a better emotional connection with an audience in the right setting. The lyrics and Ross’s unique vocal style couldn’t be better matched. I’m a fan, period.”
Joel Sampson- TK101.5 Program Director
Starting out as a three piece in high school (Ross, Garrett and Jonny), and then picking up a bass player in college (Adam), this four piece has grown together over the years and with new material in the works and there touring expanding, keep an eye out for Hamelin in 2010. It is the belief of the band that in this world where record sales are down and image is everything, maybe what we need is an indie band who works harder on creating music than it does on creating buzz.
