Tom Hamilton's American Babies

Artist bio

The origin of this rootsy outfit is as simple as it gets: A group of family and friends decidedly to get together and make some beautiful music. The American Babies, led by singer/guitarist Tom Hamilton and joined by Jim Hamilton, Joe Russo, and Kevin Kendricks, blend their talents and voices into songs about love, loss, and the life of the modern artist. The result is reminiscent of Gram Parsons and Whiskeytown, although the American Babies are quickly carving their own niche in the Americana genre.

In the summer of 2006, Tom Hamilton's American Babies began working with producer Jon Altchiller (John Mayer, Dave Matthews, Lenny Kravitz, Phish) on the band's upcoming debut.
