Originally from Roanoke, Virginia, Charlie Hamill has been writing music and playing rock shows with numerous bands for 20 years. Early in his career he was performing and living in Charlotte, NC, while working at Reflection Studios. In 1992 he moved to Austin, Texas, where he opened his own studio, Lizard Tracks. While living in Austin he began forming his unique style of writing and guitar playing that can be best characterized as hard rock with catchy, pop hooks. Early incarnations of the Charlie Hamill Group were formed in his 5th Street warehouse studio around the corner from regular gigs at the legendary Steamboat, Emo’s and Maggie Mae’s. Charlie has released 4 records since 1995 all leading up to the 2012 release of Late Night at Hamill’s. Charlie currently lives in Roanoke, Virginia, where he can be found playing local and regional venues. In 2012 Hamill purchased The Rock&Roll Diner Food Truck, and stays busy part time cooking and running the truck. Entertaining is truly his passion whether it is on stage or in a kitchen. Often you can find Charlie in Key West, strumming the acoustic or tearing it up with his electric band. In 2014 Hamill is returning to performing live music in a newly formed acoustic trio, as well as a new electric project. Stay tuned!!
