American Babies:

2015 is shaping up to be a monumental year for Philadelphia-based musician
Tom Hamilton, whose American Babies have returned to the studio to record
their latest LP; a follow-up to 2013’s Knives and Teeth.

Invigorated by a busy and exciting 2014 that found him on the road with a
number of touring acts, Hamilton can be considered “the hardest working
person in show business,” and looks forward to funneling that creative
energy into American Babies’ newest studio effort. “Everything that’s
happened since October 2013 has been surreal,” says Hamilton, “the
reception of Knives and Teeth was overwhelming. The tours throughout 2014
were all so fun and exciting. And then there were the incredible
opportunities that arose playing with Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Phil Lesh,
and Bill Kreutzmann, as well as reuniting with Clay Parnell on stage, which
all had a huge influence on the narrative of my year. I’m excited to lock
myself back in the studio and see how all of these events and new
experiences shape the next batch of songs.”

Although American Babies began as a side project for Tom Hamilton with a
rotating cast of musicians, the lineup has recently solidified to include
Hamilton’s longtime partner-in-crime bassist Clay Parnell (Particle,
Brothers Past), keyboardist Adam Flicker (The Brakes), drummer Al Smith,
and rhythm guitarist Justin Mazer. With American Babies, Hamilton has
turned his focus to songwriting and crafting lyrics that share tales of
trials and tribulations ranging from working class hard truths and
political chaos to personal relationships gone sour.

Fearlessly blending a passion for songwriting with the electronica-based
improv rock that Hamilton and Parnell developed with Brothers Past,
American Babies are pioneering a new sound — fusing serious songs with an
open-ended sense of adventure that encourages full-group improvisation in
the live setting.


Hayley Jane & the Primates:

Hayley Jane and the Primates deliver a rich, genre-bending sound with a tantalizing live performance. Winners of the New England Music Awards’ Roots/Americana act of the year, The Primates have created a serious buzz in the music world.  Their music draws inspiration from many styles including early rock and pop; old musical theater; folkadelic, bluegrass and country; along with blues, soul and reggae.
