Sony signs Hamilton, releases EP
Friday, October 16, 2020
– Not only did Jaden Hamilton sign with Sony Nashville today, the label also released a four-song from the traditionally-based singer.
The singer-songwriter debuted his "Ain't That Something" EP produced by Matthew McVaney. The disc features "Thinkin' Bout You" and the title track, along with previously released "Found Myself in a Country Song" and "Long Night Letting Go."
"I'm so excited to get the news out that I've signed with Sony Nashville. I'm grateful to be apart of such a supportive team that works with many artist that I look up to," said Hamilton. "It's a dream come true to be able to share this news and release my EP today. I'm super proud of these songs and I think they capture who I am as an artist."
A native of Prairieville, La., Hamilton was raised on a homestyle mix of classic country and hard rock and surrounded by the same sugarcane fields and tread-marked dirt roads heard in his lyrics. They were the backdrops to his earliest TikTok clips, where he has established a digital audience of more than 365,000 followers on the platform.
After being a student at Louisiana State University, and faced with a decision to either go to college or accept an invitation from a pop producer to move to Los Angeles, Hamilton went with a third path and relocated to Nashville. Hamilton is inspired by George Strait and Cody Johnson.
