The world’s biggest sports event might be over, but singer-songwriter Frank Hamilton’s own Olympic feat of writing, recording and releasing one song a week for the whole year goes from strength to strength.
Over the past few weeks he’s released Typewriter, an up-beat summery pop sing-along, Trains and Buses – which includes a new word Hamilton’s made up, “stickaroundabout” – and Things I Do, complete with a very cute ukelele line.
“I’ve released two versions of Typewriter, one’s a demo version which gives people a neat insight into the process,” Hamilton tells Scout.
“Trains and Buses is a collaboration with my friend Terry, who used to be in Alisha’s Attic and is is about being with someone who makes your day brighter,” he explains.
The latest track is Know Who We Are, which features Orla Gartland, and is a delicate, yearning song which combines Hamilton’s and Gartland’s vocals beautifully.
But it’s not all been writing and releasing for Hamilton. He’s recorded a live track for iTunes/AWAL, and is due to play Reading/Leeds festivals at the bank holiday.
On the horizon is working with legendary footballer Dion Dublin, no less. No stranger to celeb endorsement, Hamilton’s also been cited by Ed Sheeran in an interview with Total Guitar.
Each week we bring you the latest track by the multi-talented musician from his project One Song A Week.
