Calgary Bluesfest (2012)
"If blues, soul, and rock can be said to form a triangle, you'll find Hamilton Loomis right in the
center of it", says Guitar Player Magazine. An apt description, as young Loomis is one of the young artists
at the forefront of bringing blues based American music into the 21st century and redefining it for a contemporary
audience. Spanning youth and tradition, Loomis bridges the gap between generations of music-lovers both in the U.S.
and around the world.
Whereas similar aged acts like Black Keys, Robert Randolph and White Stripes play American rock music with heavy
blues influences, Loomis plays the inverse. His is an undeniably blues based artist escalating into what
All Music Guide calls " ...a mixed bag of modern blues, modern funk, and slick soul."
Much like fellow funkster Lenny Kravitz, Loomis played every instrument on his debut and Ain't Just Temporary.
The debut entitled Hamilton was under Grammy consideration, an impressive feat for a self-released debut indie record.
Sure, Black Keys songs are in Levi's commercials, but Hamilton landed a part in a VH-1 movie playing opposite Gene Simmons.
