INTERVIEW: Knox Hamilton

Hi Boots, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

Never better!

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Cool”?

COOL is a sort of reminder to focus on the people who love you for who you really are. You’ll spend an entire lifetime trying to win the affection of people who don’t spend as much time thinking about you as you do them. But I hope it serves different purposes for each person who listens to it.

Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?

Just inspired by those people you know in life who seem to have it all even though they’re typically the last to realize it.

Any plans to release a music video for the single?

We start filming as soon as we get back home from this short run of shows next week!

How was the recording and writing process?

Drew our guitarist wrote a majority of the demo a couple of years ago so it’s just been evolving since then in the studio.

How your upbringing does influences your music?

We all grew up playing music in churches in the south where music is a big part of everything so I’d say that does have a major impact on how we see music and what energy we bring to the stage and studio alike.

Does Arkansas plays a role in your writing?

I’m sure it’s impossible for your home to not impact your state of mind in a lot of things including songwriting but I’m not sure any of us draw any direct correlation between our home state and the music we write.

Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?

We’re in the studio next week working on the next few singles! Busy weeks ahead.

Any tentative release date or title in mind? Any plans to hit the road?

Not 100% sure of the next single but we are definitely working on a fall tour as we speak.

What else is happening next in Knox Hamilton’s world?

Just continuing to make gold records. It’s a full time job ya know? 🙂
