Hammydown has made your salad, and scooped the foam onto your cappuccino. She's scrubbed your splattered walls and vacuumed the dust from beneath your bed on her hands and knees. She's delivered your pizza. A boss will say time and time again that it doesn't cost anything extra to give service with a smile. With her quirky, lyric driven garage pop, Hammydown (aka Abbie Morin) digs at the true price that she and so many people like her have to pay. Gritty guitar, and wry humor capture the plight of the millennial slacker - those who button up and drag their way through the work week, try to pursue creative passions, but still just feel like losers. Based in Northampton, Mass, Hammydown will release the debut EP Pizzaface on July 21, 2017.
Before Hammydown, Morin fronted a self-titled folk rock project based in Burlington, VT. During that time she shared the stage with Lucy Dacus, And The Kids, Palm, Mal Devisa, Wild Child, Susto, Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas. Following an extensive tour of the United States, she could no longer make it through a show without breaking a string on her acoustic from playing so hard - causing her to leave it behind in favor of a Fender Jazzmaster, and a newly inspired sound.
