Hailing from a small town in Kansas, Anna Hamilton has made her way up to the big leagues. Her latest single, “Me For Barcelona,” showcases her earthy, acoustic tones and is already delighting listeners across the globe.
Hamilton’s journey began at just 14, when she began playing songs around the campfire for friends and family. She has transitioned from a guitar and banjo into an acoustic indie alternative pop, while maintaining her homespun, real sound. Hamilton has proven herself as both a singer-songwriter and a storyteller, making a name for herself on TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube. She also debuted on season 2 of NBC’s “Songland,” earning her even more recognition.
Bet the sky was pouring rain
Picturing where you would stay
In the city
Where you first let go of me
Why’d you have to choose
Why’d I have to lose
God I’m trying
To forget you were mine
“Me For Barcelona” explores feelings of heartbreak and loneliness after a breakup. These lyrics encapsulate the broken feeling, and how the city where love once blossomed became the city where it was lost.
Fans of Alex Porat or Jada Facer should check out Anna Hamilton for her acoustic, grounded tracks.
