Born Ronald Hulme in Everton, Liverpool, in 1931.

A former Butlin's Redcoat, Hamilton's first hit in the UK was "We Will Make Love", recorded in 1957 for Oriole Records. However, in the U.S., it was the B-side "Rainbow" became the hit because, according to Hamilton himself, it was due to the U.S. mistaking "Rainbow" to be the A-side of the single.

Hamilton followed his first success with another self penned item, "Wedding Ring" which managed to reach the Top 20 in UK. In 1960, he was invited to Nashville, Tennessee and signed up with MGM Records. His success with record releases did not improve, and by the early 1960s he had dropped away from the foreground of the pop music scene but continued to write, and were popular in Asia.

Hamilton died on 11 October 2008, at the age of 76, at his home in Buckley, North Wales.
