  • Hamell not only records music, performs live, does independent writing, he also paints. All of the images below, and many you see as the accompanying artwork on the digital releases, are Hamell paintings. These vary in size and price, but are all acrylic on canvas. Hamell paints scenes inspired by the 'underground' and 'disenfranchised' of our society. Ed uses bold and bright colors in his paintings which contrast the darker subject matter, championing the underclass, drawing you into the characters he depicts, endearing you to them and sparking emotions one might not anticipate.Hamell is also available for specific painting commissions.

When I was just a little lad, they'd spank me when I was bad, I wouldn't even turn my head. they say 'When you gonna straighten out? ' But rather than scream and shout, well this is what I said...
I said 'Hoo!'

When I was just an adolescent, my energy it was incessant and occasionally I would seek criminal means...
When explanations were required, authority's would often perspire, to hear from the mouthy of a teen...
I'd say 'Hoo!'

Then I found my instrument, that's when all the guardians went, 'well hopefully it'll head him in the right direction!'
But you get a little bit older, than you get a little bit bolder and I've never been particularly impressed by perfection.
It makes me go, 'Hoo'.

Then I saw the world from a car, and you don't know how far off you are when say, 'Hey Hamell, that must be livin'!'
I had to quit I had malnutrition, but now I'm inspired by all the competition, I say, 'Good Lord what a headache it's givin'!'
Then I turned a hundred and three and I can only speak for me but I feel alive with the fire.
people say 'Is all this Hoo Hoo done?' I say, 'Oh no man, I'm just starting to have fun, and what would ever make you think I'm ever gonna tire?'
I go 'Hoo!'
It makes me go 'Hoo!'
