Moshville Times favourite, and all round nice guy, Ryan Hamilton has been added to the bill for the upcoming Ginger tour. Ryan will be joined by The Traitors (Rob Lane and Mickey Richards) with Massive Wagon also playing each night. Ryan had this to say about Ginger personally inviting him to play:
I’ve been a fan of Ginger’s music for years but I’d never met or spoken to him before he reached out to me. It was a complete shock when he shared my music online then got in touch to see if I’d like to support him on his upcoming UK tour. Of course, I didn’t have to think twice about saying yes!
Things like this just don’t seem to happen in the music world anymore. I really believe in connecting with other musicians and music fans so I’m really excited to get out on the road and perform again.
My last tour was the most rewarding experience of my career – having people sing along to my solo songs night after night is something I will never forget.
The UK has always been really good to me and I can’t wait to see both new and familiar faces in the crowds at these shows!
Ginger Wildheart, formerly part of supergroup Camp Freddy alongside Ozzy Osbourne, released his solo album 100% in 2012. The album attracted more than £200,000 worth of public funding in a matter of hours via Ginger’s Pledge Music campaign before going on to beat both Rihanna and Coldplay in the UK midweek album charts. As a champion of independent music, it comes as no surprise that Ginger has selected Ryan, whose music is also funded by his fans, to join him on tour.
Ginger, from South Shields, said:
I have to say that I’m huge fans of both band, and if you aren’t already then get down early and let’s feed your head and heart with some mighty melody and gargantuan guitars. The whole event is set to be a classic rock package, the like of which haven’t been seen on these shores since bands could all play.
