“…A prodigy in every sense.” – Billboard
Joel Hamilton, aka Mechanical River, puts his dynamic production skills and vocal virtuosity on full display with his new offering, ‘Posterity’ – out today on Electric Lady Records. The Charleston, South Carolina native bends soaring vocals, brittle cigar-box guitar, and pawnshop drum machines into songs far greater than the sum of their parts.
Hamilton has toured the world, shared stages with the likes of Daniel Johnston and Rufus Wainwright, backpacked across continents, and on one occasion survived a wild animal attack (it was a bear) – all the while writing and recording music whereby he plays every instrument himself. ‘Posterity’ is a culmination of his dedication to song-craft and sonic exploration, honed through the crucible of living – and questioning – life to it’s fullest.
