NEWS: Megan Hamilton Announces Tranzac Residency

February 13, 2009


With the release of her second LP, See Your Midnight Breath in the Shipyard looming in the near future (April 7th), Megan Hamilton will commit her sultry organic presence to the Tranzac in Toronto for a monthly residency. On the last Thursday of every month, Hamilton and her head-turning folk rock tunes can be found at the humble Tranzac (292 Brunswick Ave., Toronto). Hamilton says she decided to do this residency as a chance to experiment with her live solo set and with new instruments. The first appearance is February 26th.

Hamilton was hailed as an Artist To Watch in 2009 in the December 2008 edition of Exclaim!: “…expect Hamilton to start exploring new sonic territory on her next release.” Hamilton and her backing band (The Volunteer Canola) has toured through the east coast of Canada, Quebec, Ontario, and ventured south to play Alabama, Kentucky and Texas. She has shared the stage with My Morning Jacket, Rock Plaza Central, Nathan Wiley and Sunparlour Players, along with numerous others. See Your Midnight Breath in the Shipyard will be released on the artist-run label Familiar Music which Hamilton founded with friends and continues to operate. More information about the forthcoming album will be released shortly, in the meantime catch Hamilton live at Canadian Music Week or at the Tranzac:
