Sydney-based singer/songwriter Elliot Hamilton Brown set the bar high for pop musicians earlier this year with the debut release of his pop/dance EP, Heart Attacked. Now, the 28 year old is raising the stakes again with a remixed release of one of his hottest hits: 'Yeah Baby (KG vs PLCe Remix).'
Inspired by modern songwriters such as Bruno Mars, Gotye, Frank Ocean and Ellie Goulding, Hamilton Brown aspires to 'evoke people's attention' with catchy hooks and dance beats seen in many of today's chart-topping hits.
Elliot Hamilton Brown - Yeah Baby (KG vs PLCe Remix)
Moving from a small town in the north-western suburbs of Brisbane to the bustling city life of Sydney's CBD, Hamilton Brown aspires to put his ideas into action. Making the most of what the city has to offer, the songwriter is now developing his music at a rapid pace, working towards his dream career as a full-time singer and songwriter. The move is what Hamilton Brown describes as a 'birthing experience for his music'. For the past five years, he has established himself in alternative industries in a long-term approach to set up a successful music career. Opting out of a Bachelor of Music degree, Hamilton Brown instead took on a Nursing degree - a noble occupation which he describes as 'something [to do] in the mean time to gain life experiences ,help people and provide both work and a good wage to help fund my music development.'
Now qualified, Hamilton Brown has the ability to simultaneously work as a theatre scrub nurse, and pursue his passion for pop and dance music. His multi-tasking skill in both the creation and production of the Yeah Baby remix is impressive to say the least. Networking with like-minded artists from across the world, Hamilton Brown has had a large amount to organise with the release of the remixed single, and a debut album to be released within the month. Working with Japanese DJ's PLCe and South African born Melbourne rap artist KG, Hamilton Brown collaborated 'effortlessly' with the two to create the track using social media and online platforms - an avenue that he describes as 'a potential for greater success'. Having past success online with the release of Heart Attacked (2013), Hamilton Brown is looking to target an international fan base specifically with the release of Yeah Baby. 'I think it is particularly hard to get noticed as an artist who... creates pop music in Australia. For some reason pop music isn't well respected here in Australia. Australians love the roots and blues and alternative genre styles.'
'However... being amongst the pop genre overseas can be a whole other ball game...I actually received more plays [with Heart Attacked] from overseas radio stations [than in Australia] which was exciting,' he says. Nevertheless, battling as an Australian pop musician in a musically diverse country does not stop Hamilton Brown from reaching success. with over 5000 followers on Twitter, many of which being Australian based, Hamilton Brown seems to defy the odds as fans wait in anticipation for his new release. 'I think you can really achieve all you want as a musician anywhere really. With technology today, achieving this is quite easy anywhere,' he says. Yeah Baby KG vs PLCe Remix is set for official release on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon on 21 August, 2013.
