Back in 2003, Anthony Hamilton introduced us to God and good loving when he glided onto the scene with his southern cool debut, Comin’ From Where I’m From. Now, in 2016, he’s still swaying us with his guttural yet, smooth voice. Epitomizing soul, Hamilton’s vocals peel you wide open, serving as a cathartic catalyst for soul searching epiphanies. With indomitable passion, his music has consistently told vivid stories about what is real, right and raw in life and love.
After some serious personal setbacks, Hamilton continues to deliver music filled with joy, regret, surrender and redemption. He’s curated a brand that reflects his steady ascension to the mountaintop, refusing to stay in the valley.
Perfectly complemented by his background singers, the Hamiltones, Hamilton has bridged the millennial generation gap with his dope covers of hip-hop hits such as, Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and Rae Sremmurd’s “Come Get Her.” He’s pulled in 12 million views alone within the past four months. Flexing multiple talents, Hamilton is also known for his crafty culinary skills, cooking anything ranging from greens to honey dill salmon.
The Grammy winning singer, songwriter and producer recently released his fifth studio album, What I’m Feelin’, which is essentially a sanctified panty dropper. Similar to his previous releases, it’s a unique synthesis of blues, gospel, jazz and soul. In the midst of prepping for his upcoming tour with Fantasia and chasing around his 3 youngest sons, Hamilton took some time to tell us what he’s feelin’ about the new album, today’s R&B, the Obamas, upcoming projects and his relationship with God.
