The Band

thaband2 (20K)Laid on the foundation of CR Hamilton's love of the keys, 1 Down is a neo-soul jazz band made up of the Hamilton family. CR Hamilton (keyboards), Colin Hamilton Jr. (Lead Guitar), Timothy Hamilton (Bass Guitar), and Xander Hamilton (Percussions). 1 Down formed in 2008 in Richmond, VA. as a jazz group with a fusion of soul.

The Sound

The keyboards are the main ingredient in the group. Laying down smooth chords and rhythms laced with smart piano solos. The bass brings a funky and soulful mix to the keys and quickens the neo-sound in all the songs. Acoustic and electric guitars strum and pick into the songs adding melody, character, and a touch of pop to the music. Lastly, the percussions give boost to the 1 Down sound making it all that the listener hears and enjoys.
