GREAT NEW LOCAL MUSIC: Ham1 "The Captain's Table"

This has been a pretty easy-going kind of Monday, busy enough to keep my work day flowing but nothing too hectic. This new album from Ham1, "The Captain's Table", was a great soundtrack to my easy-going day. Sauntering through a kaleidoscope of 60's-inspired rockers, dirty southern ballads & indie pop, "The Captain's Table" is yet another wonderful album from a growing scene of excellence coming out of Athens (GA). The album will be released on Nov. 6th through Athens' own eco-conscious Orange Twin Records. Ham1 will soon embark on the “Three On A Tree Tour” supporting Liz Durrett (she contributes vocals to this album) and Vic Chesnutt while also acting as both acts’ backing band. All three tracks below are highly recommended!!
