Hamiltones started out as the backing singers for singer Anthony Hamilton, but this Grammy-Nominated vocal trio has developed their own soul sound, combining sweet falsetto croons and smooth round harmonies with some funky grooves and trap beats, and a little vintage-sounding swagger in the production. Their 2020 release, called 1964, references the year that the Civil Rights Act was signed. What began as a Juneteenth song expanded into an album of song and story combining sampled speeches and interludes with tunes that reflect the Black Experience in America. Hear intimate arrangements performed remotely by the Hamiltones from North Carolina.
