You may know him as the front-man to pop-punk outfit Bowling For Soup, but Jaret Reddick is also part of People on Vacation alongside Smile Smile guitarist and vocalst Ryan Hamilton. The band released "The Carry On EP" at the end of 2011 and are supporting Jaret and Erik Chandler on the Bowling for Soup acoustic tour, the duo will also play their first ever UK headline date at London’s Borderline on Sunday, March 25th. TNS caught up with Ryan Hamilton ahead of the tour: People on Vacation began when Jaret saw Hamilton’s band, ‘Smile Smile,’ perform at SXSW a few years ago. He explained: “I gave him a CD after the show. Before we knew it, Smile Smile was on tour with Bowling For Soup! Strange combination I know... BUT much to our surprise the BFS fans embraced Smile Smile and Jaret and I became fast friends.” “I approached him one day after the tour and asked what he thought about getting together and writing some songs. I was curious to see what it would sound like if combined our two different worlds/sounds." “We got together and wrote a song. It went so well, we wrote and recorded 15 more in about 10 days. It was, for lack of a cooler word, magical.” The name, “People on Vacation” came from a song-writing game that the band plays.
