What’s not to like? Ryan Hamilton has a solid rock and roll C.V. and Chuck Prophet writes great songs – and this is a perfect example. All the more surprising then that it hasn’t been recorded before by Chuck himself, but there you are that’s the way it is. How did Ryan Hamilton get his hands on the song? Well, there’s a story behind that but it’s a bit lame. We hasten to add that Ryan Hamilton describes it that way, we just call it the modern world: “Chuck and I have a lot of mutual friends, but the truth is… we became friends on Twitter. How lame is that? Haha. We started tweeting each other, and that led to emailing each other, exchanging phone numbers etc… What a world we live in now.”
This could be the start of something bigger – Ryan would certainly like that: “I would LOVE to collaborate with Chuck more. ‘Big Man’ turned out amazing, and I think it may be the beginning of something more. Who knows. I think a tour together would be wonderful. It’s been discussed a little bit, and I think it should happen. I actually just signed with a new, big, awesome Agency here, AMG (Atomic Music Group) and it appears I will be touring A LOT next year. Gotta do something with Chuck! ”
