Growing up in the heart of Texas, it would have been hard for acoustic singer songwriter Ryan Hamilton to avoid falling in love with music. Initially tasting nationwide success with the indie folk band Smile Smile, Hamilton found himself signed to a record label and out on the road supporting several successful album releases. Their track ‘Sad Song’ received a nomination for ‘Best Folk Song in the Los Angeles Independent Music Awards’ and the band was nominated for ‘Best USA Artist’ in the Toronto Independent Music Awards.
It was whilst performing at the South by South West Festival in 2010, that Ryan met Jaret Reddick (front man for Bowling For Soup). The pair struck up an unlikely friendship, which led to Reddick and Hamilton deciding to write songs together. The instant chemistry, and mutually similar influences growing up, led to the formation of People On Vacation.
The demise of Smile Smile gave both Hamilton and Reddick time to focus fully on their new project. In the short time POV have been together they have already released three full length albums, an EP and toured the UK on several occasions.
Outside of music, Ryan continues to showcase his other artistic talents. Already his unique abstract pop culture paintings, or ‘Fake Ads’, have attracted attention from the world famous Thomas Crown Art Gallery who have commissioned several of his works.
Praise for ‘Hell Of A Day’
“This album is enjoyable from start to finish. There’s a lot of parts to sing along and clap your hands to throughout which would make you think, from only the first listen, that this is a classic album you have heard time and time again.”
“There’s barely a song on Hell Of A Day that isn’t catchy. These are summer songs at their most friendly and welcoming.”
“A fantastic debut release. Just do yourselves a favour and sign up and get everything this man has ever released. The guy is so freakingly awesome”
