Page Nye Hamilton (born May 18, 1960 in Portland, Oregon) is a singer, guitarist and record producer, mostly noted for his work with alternative metal band Helmet. Most of his work has been in the heavy metal or hard rock styles, but Hamilton has an experimentalist streak, and has worked in other genres. Raised in Medford, Oregon, Hamilton moved to New York to study jazz guitar. While there, he "discovered distortion" and joined Band of Susans. Hamilton worked with composer Glenn Branca, after which he started Helmet. Helmet's albums at that time included Strap It On, Meantime, Betty, and Aftertaste.
