Lost Together with Matt Wardlaw, Episode 21: John Hampson (Nine Days)


Jun 22, 2016 Comments are off

This week our guest is singer/songwriter John Hampson from the band Nine Days.

More than fifteen years after their major label breakthrough The Madding Crowdwas released, an album which spawned a massive Top 10 hit for the group with “Absolutely (Story Of A Girl),” the group is back in business with their latest album, Snapshots, which will be released on July 8.

Fans can pre-order the album via iTunes and get several advance tracks, including the “Sweet 16” version of “Absolutely (Story Of A Girl).”

During the interview, Hampson shared with us the story about how this new album came together.

“The band never broke up. We’ve known each other for a long, long time and you know, we went through a lot of different hoops,” he says. “Obviously, we had major label success and then we went through a very sort of cliche major label meltdown story where our label imploded and our follow-up record never really got released. It had been a long road going through all of that, even though it wasn’t a long time.” read more
