In the run up to the release, Ryan has treated us to a lyric video for ‘4 Letter Verb’.

Ryan will also be hitting the UK in September for a House Party Tour, where he will get up close and personal with his adoring fans. There aren’t many tickets left, so get yours quick. Let’s hope there is no flash photography this time around!

Growing up in the heart of Texas, it would have been hard for acoustic singer songwriter Ryan Hamilton to avoid falling in love with music. Initially tasting nationwide success with the indie folk band Smile Smile, Hamilton found himself signed to a record label and out on the road supporting several successful album releases.

It was whilst performing at the South by South West Festival in 2010, that Ryan met Jaret Reddick (front man for Bowling For Soup). The pair struck up an unlikely friendship, which led to Reddick and Hamilton deciding to write songs together. The instant chemistry, and mutually similar influences growing up, led to the formation of People On Vacation.

The demise of Smile Smile gave both Hamilton and Reddick time to focus fully on their new project. In the short time POV have been together they have already released three full length albums, an EP and toured the UK on several occasions.
