Bio

Josh Lee Hamilton is an indie folk/ singer songwriter from the small yet vibrant surf town of Byron Bay, Australia. After releasing his dreamy and upbeat single, “Golden” in late 2016, he has just released his latest single "Soul Breaks",which is a beautiful and intimate song, with a subtle and pleasantly surprising lift at the end. Josh is now back in the studio doing the final touches his latest EP ( co-produced and engineered by Garrett Kato), scheduled to be released mid 2017.

Josh has a unique ability to craft songs that express the big and small, the shallow and deep, the in and the out, the head and heart, the soul and spirit, you and me. Josh writes songs that tell stories of love, struggle, relationships, hope and faith and are an expression of both his personal life and observations of the world around him.

Music has always been in Josh's bones, since he was young. Up until now he always kept his “hand in it” (as encourage by his fanatical music loving grandfather) doing what he can alongside other career paths. However now, in late 2016, he has decided that now is the time to “have a crack at it” and pour his full heart and energy into what comes to Josh most naturally.... music, song writing and performing.

Even though his energy and time has been some what divided and dispersed up until now, he has still managed to achieve musical career milestones along the way, such as being selected as a feature artist on Triple J Unearthed in 2007, being invited to play at Splendour In The Grass in 2015, featuring in a compilation album “Songs For The Sea”, having his song “Mindless Days” synced in a TV series “No Way San Jose”, and releasing his EP, “Lost In Your Time” in 2013.

Exciting times are ahead for Josh Lee Hamilton as he launches into the next season of his musical journey, so be sure make yourself familiar with Josh Lee Hamilton and follow him along the way.
