You may know him from his gig as the lead singer of The Walkmen for over a decade, but Hamilton Leithauser still has a lot to offer musically, even with the 2013 break up (okay, fine – “hiatus”) of his previous band. Now a solo artist, Leithauser has already released an album, Black Hours, under his own name.
I sat down with Leithauser on the rooftop of the Georgia Theatre during his tour with Broken Bells to talk about Black Hours, what it’s like to release songs as a solo artist, and his future plans.
Emily is an over-enthusiastic lover of music, books, movies, fashion, and culture in general. Her love of music spans across all genres (what is a genre anymore? she waxes poetic to herself), though she was nursed on true punk and will never understand “redneck country” music – tractors are not and cannot be sexy. Emily currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and considers herself to be a great wit, though she is still waiting on validation from a credible source.
