  • 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.

I saw you walking in the bar, you went back to where the pool tables are, you were hoping that I wouldn't see.
A couple weeks ago we buried that man, he was your lover and my best friend and what you do makes no difference to me.

Some hearts nee a lot of lovin', that's you....

I didn't stick around, I didn't have a drink, I thought I'd take a walk I needed to think, the night was warm I felt it in my soul.
If I know him he'd say to you, you got to be happy whatever you do, don't waste your time angry or alone.

Some hearts need a lot of lovin' that's you...

It's a good size town with a lot of places, a lot of bars and familiar faces and that's one place I needn't hit again.
If me coming round makes you think of him, I won't set you back so you can begin, I hope you know I think I understand.

Some hearts need a lot of lovin' that's you...
And he was the same way too...
