Rod's original musical elements are rooted in Blues, Garage Rock and Early Country. Low-fidelity, dark storytelling and Eerie American Folk Music make up the songwriting process. He creates a sound that can be likened to artists such as, Skip James, Captain Beefheart, and Charlie Patton, and more current acts such as The White Stripes and Tom Waits.

In February of 2012, Rod joined the ever popular Swamp Blues Hillbilly Rock and Roll band, Th' Legendary Shack Shakers. Touring all over the nation and Europe, he always seems to be playing guitar somewhere. Also, joined the band The Dirt Daubers, with band mate JD Wilkes.

“Creative Loafing Atlanta's Best of 2011- "BEST LOCAL BLUES ACT" (Critics Pick). "An Atlanta guitar slinger with a swooping pompadour, Rod Hamdallah has swiftly risen through the ranks of Atlanta's die-hard blues scene by taking cues from such hometown icons as the late Sean Costello and Donnie McCormick. With a blend of delta blues, electric roots and garage rock girth, Hamdallah has tricked out a sultry sound and presence that's recharging the blues. He's what the old heads who lurk in the shadows at the back of the bar refer to as the real deal, and they ain't lyin'.”

Framed for murder in the 1930's and sentenced to death by electric chair, Tim Lowman a.k.a "Low Volts", would not exist today if his traveling gospel singer great grandfather had not escaped his electrified fate. A little old lady served as a key witness which resulted in the pardoning of 'Doc Lowman', thus ensuring the musical family tree would grow even stronger. Three musical generations later, three time San Diego Music Award winner, LOW VOLTS is giving the music world a much needed shock to the heart. Often referring to himself as ‘us’ and ‘we’ at live shows, this one-man, dirty-blues-rock n’ roller provides a wild performance like none other. With a gritty old slide-guitar, thunderous kick drum laden with tambourines, and dark, howling vocals, LOW VOLTS creates a thick and heavy sound equivalant to a five piece band. Stripped down, stand up original music. Combining a timeless mixture of blues, rock and soul, LOW VOLTS has managed to encompass the American sound in a raw and extremely unique way.
Think ‘1955 meets 2055.’ ‘Early Elvis meets Evel Knievel.’
The 2011 debut record, ‘TWIST SHAKE GRIND BREAK’ has seen music used by Showtimes's 'WEEDS', Stone Brewing Co., Sector 9 Skateboards and also won 'Best Blues Album' at SDMA's.
