How can it be June already?
Back in January 2021, Texan singer/songwriter announced his 1221 project, his intent to release a new song a month for the duration of the year. This month’s track, ‘Shots Fired’ sees us reaching the halfway point with a floor-stomping rocker.
What was the inspiration behind this latest track?

This song is about getting used. I’ve had some TOXIC relationships in my life… as lots of people have. So I got a feeling this song is gonna resonate with lots of folks. When you stay in a poisonous relationship, simply because there’s a singular good thing… whether it’s sex, or not feeling alone… whatever it may be. We ignore the abundance of reasons we should GET OUT, and stick around anyway. Why do we do that? This song is about that. 

With half of 1221 already done, are you able to share anything about the remaining six months of releases yet to come?

From here on in, everything is rock n roll. I can’t wait to share the rest. 

On the cover image for ‘Shots Fired’, you appear to be the victim of said shots – what’s happening there?

I wanted an image that portrayed a man being used. I’ll let you decide just HOW he might have been used 😉

Hamilton was recently heralded by Spin magazine as one of the ‘Best Lesser-Known Artists of the Last 35 Years’.
