Ryan Hamilton drops surprise EP, raising funds for struggling UK venues

Surprise! We’re super-excited to announce the immediate release of Incommunicado, out now and available everywhere! This is a collection of four songs, recorded from isolation in Texas, in the UK, and in France.

All initial proceeds will be donated to the Music Venue Trust’s “Save Our Venues” cause in the UK, to help save independent venues, many of which Ryan has played, that are being seriously affected by the pandemic.

This 4 song EP is just a few dollars, or pounds. Literally less than the cost of a fast food meal, or a large drink at Starbucks. Which you will struggle to get anyway what with everywhere being closed.

Ryan’s preference is that you go buy it on iTunes (UK or US). I know many of you will stream it on Spotify etc., but, please, spend the few bucks for a good cause. Not only are you supporting an artist that you (seemingly, hopefully) love, you’re generating money to help save music venues.

On a personal note from Ryan:

This pandemic situation has been seriously difficult. I have been very open, and honest about my mental health struggles. I was on the verge of heading to a very dark emotional place. Instead of letting myself go to that dark place, I decided to call our producer, Dave Draper, and ask if he’d be down to work on this music with me. I needed it. I really needed it.

Working on these songs saved me. Music, once again, saves the day. I am so incredibly thankful to get to work with talented, supportive friends. Like Dave Draper, Emily Ewing, Maurice Hipkiss and the folks who made this new EP happen.
