Hamell On Trial

"Bald, bold and superbad!"–Rolling Stone

Hamell on Trial, the musical alias of New York-based poet and folk punk hero Ed Hamell, returns with TACKLE BOX on August 11, 2017 via New West Records. A one-man explosion, Hamell on Trial is a dynamic performance informed by politics, passion, intelligence and the all-important sense of humor. TACKLE BOX is Hamell’s tenth record, second on New West, and was co-produced by the Grammy award winning producer Phil “The Butcher” Nicolo (Bob Dylan, Ms. Lauryn Hill). Armed with a battered 1937 Gibson acoustic guitar that he amplifies mightily and strums like a machine gun, a politically astute mind that can't stop moving, and a mouth that can be profane one minute and profound the next, with TACKLE BOX, Hamell sets his sights on the new America and issues personal and spiritual.
