About The Author: Chris Hamilton

Chris Hamilton's list of musical interests is long--but he's in A&R, so that goes with the territory. Specifically, Chris is Centricity's A&R manager, which entails lots of meetings, coffee, and e-mails--and sampling lots of music. His musical loves range from local acts like Paper Route and the Silver Seas to the classics: Zeppelin, Cash, and Dylan. He grew up playing piano and "was forced into guitar lessons at gunpoint by my mother," Chris says. Yikes. He's played piano (and then keytar) in several bands, including the newly-signed Glitter Dragon. "I gladly gave up my band when I was offered my dream job in A&R." Outside of music, Chris enjoys a little college football, golf, and wake-boarding. He also bravely participated in the Great Chewuch River Tubing Challenge in summer '08. Ask him about it.
