Joel T. Hamilton is a mouthful. It’s 5 syllables and doesn’t well roll off the tongue. As a musician he has trouble sticking to one instrument, as a songwriter one genre, as a lyricist one voice resulting in vague ineffectivity. This quality very visibly imposes itself upon his life as well. As a person he writes his own bio in third person and feels silly. He has a failed garden in his backyard and got sick off cheap tequila last night and wants to die today. He knows there’s something to be said about highlighting ones better qualities but often has trouble finding them. He’s a below average arm wrestler and knows he needs contacts but refuses. Perhaps you’d be better off making your own music than listening to his pile.
