Abby Hamilton releases “Big Time (Live)”
Emerging country and folk-rock artist Abby Hamilton releases a new live version of her song “Big Time.” Filmed and recorded by Jon Tsang at Goat Farms Art Center in Atlanta, the performance features Abby and her band: Ryan Allen (keyboards), Carson Childers (bass), Zac Hamilton (guitar) and Zach Martin (drums).
The song is taken from Abby’s new EP, Afraid of the Dark Live Sessions, which will be released on September 9, and follows recent releases of “Fast (Live)”, “Afraid of the Dark (Live)” and “Trailer Park Queen (Live), “which Brooklyn Vegan praises, “a lovely, breezy new song that showcases Abby’s grizzled but soaring voice.”
Born and raised in Nicholasville, KY, Abby has earned a reputation as an exciting rising musician, opening bands like Wynonna Judd, Shakey Graves, Backseat Lovers, Justin Wells, Kelsey Waldon and Arlo McKinley, singing at festivals such as Master Musicians, Railbird and Luck Reunion and performing on a recent episode of Mountain Stage.
With influences ranging from classic country to Sheryl Crow and Bruce Springsteen, she won over audiences with her wry, heartfelt lyrical perspective and haunting vocals.
Abby will continue to perform throughout this year, including an upcoming show at Nashville’s 5 Spot as part of AmericanaFest as well as several dates in support of Kelsey Waldon later this fall. See the full tour itinerary below.
