Highly regarded singer-songwriter Ryan Hamilton has announced the release of his newest studio album, ‘Haunted By The Holy Ghost.’ The album is set to drop on March 10th via Wicked Cool Records. The Fort Worth, Texas musician first gained popularity with his band Smile Smile before releasing his solo debut album, ‘Hell of a Day,’ in 2015.
In 2018, he signed to Stevie Van Zandt’s label and embarked on a sold-out UK tour with The Alarm. Since then, he has toured across the US and the UK. Highlights include appearances at Adam Duritz’s Underwater Sunshine festival and opening for Jesse Malin at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC.
