In The SF Examiner Today!

1 Sep

Today, The San Francisco Examiner printed Leslie Katz’s super-cool feature about The Exited Door, its creation, and Thursday’s show!  Leslie rules – it was a blast to talk with her about the album.

“I wanted to bring all the different types of music I love into one album,” says the songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, whose first musical success was as a jazz saxophonist (he earned a degree in jazz performance from the University of Miami School of Music). He doesn’t mind if his music is compared to that of Tom Waits, Sufjan Stevens, Stephen Sondheim or The Decemberists.

Still, “The Exited Door” remains a distinctly personal expression: “It’s a little autobiographical,” Hamilton says. “It’s about my early passionate rushes of music and romance. It’s songs about my experience.”

One thing it’s not is the culmination of his career.

The Inner Sunset resident — who loves being near Golden Gate Park — says, “I’m already thinking about newer, bigger things. I haven’t made my rock opera yet!”

Ha – yeah, wow, I really said that…  I guess the only thing to do now is write a rock opera, (and play it at Great American Music Hall).  Okay, it’s on.

Getting excited about Thursday’s show yet?  I sure as hell am.
