Nine Days' John Hampson Goes Digital
As the first track of the album suggests, the hit songwriter from Long Island NY, has spent the last few months "On The Road" performing a selection of tunes from his brand new solo album, "Shiny New Album" (New Line/Pop Core/Dirty Poet).
The shows consist of songs from his new release such as; "When We Were 22", "Good Time For A Mistake", "Stella", plus a true highlight, "How Much"; his current single, which has been garnering regular airplay at stations such as: UR CHR KFMI (Eureka, CA), UR HOT KLTZ (Glassgow, MT), UR HOT KLAN (Glassgow, MT), RR-I CHR (KZII Lubbock, TX) and more.
While not denying the audience "Absolutely (Story of a Gir l)" - the song that made him famous - and "If I Am", the second of his two top 40 hits as the lead singer of Nine Days (from their debut release "The Madding Crowd" (Epic/Sony) which has sold nearly a million copies worldwide), the focus of the shows is on the new music.
The new songs reflect a maturity in lyrical themes and musical dynamics, but the clever wordplay and big melodies have not been left behind (John did, after all, just write the first single, "The In Crowd", off of Disney Records artist Mitchell Musso's new album).
