HIGHLY ACCLAIMED SINGER & SONGWRITER HAMELL ON TRIAL
COMES TO COMIX FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY
NEW YORK, NY – Comix is proud to present bad ass singer/songwriter, joke-telling Hamell On Trial for one night only on Tuesday, February 20th at 8:00 PM.
Prior to a debilitating car accident in May 2000, Hamell On Trial toured consistently, impressing audiences from New York to Los Angeles, and logging more than 250 one-night performances each year. Now fully recovered from his head and spine injuries, Hamell is back on the road and recently completed a sold-out East Coast tour with Ani DiFranco during which he mastered and released a live record entitled “Ed’s Not Dead -- Hamell Comes Alive”.
Hamell On Trial defies all musical categories. The terms “Punk acoustic” and “anti-folk” come close to describing his musical style. If you’re looking for cum-bye-yah by some soft-strumming, tearful folkie, Hamell On Trial is going to offend you. On stage his raw, bold energy has Rolling Stone magazine calling him a “homicidal Otto Preminger.”
“Choochtown”, his first record on his own recording label Such a Punch Media, received a 5-star review in Uncut magazine ("Absolutely brilliant!"), and Hamell’s first European tour met with sold-out shows in London and Ireland. With his battered 1937 small-body Gibson, Hamell checks the pulse of the nation and gives it to us straight. And we're glad he does.
