The much loved Tennesse-born singer-songwriter returns to Brighton to celebrate the tenth anniversary of his classic album The Gospel, as well as promoting his new project Broken Arrows.
Americana musician Micah P. Hinson began his musical experimentation in his late teens when he was living in a small town in Texas. The isolation allowed him to become extremely engaged in the local music scene and in 2003 he teamed up with a musical collective called The Earlies who created the backdrop to his creative music.
With albums under his belt such as The Baby and The Satellite, The Opera Circuit, The Red Empire Orchestra, The Pioneer Saboteurs, and The Nothing, along with others, we can still find him pushing forward with new work spilling out of his hands, always looking for the new melody or the new song for the People.
With the birth of his first born son, there seems to always be something going on in his life that would attempt to hinder his productions, such as broken spines, near fatal van accidents in strange lands, the temporary loss of his arms and split nerves; Hinson however never lets that creative torch flame dwindle nor let a plume of smoke be seen instead.
With Hinson’s new tour of Europe this coming Spring, he his glad to be able to begin playing live what will be his newest LP, as well as promoting his project Broken Arrows, which has been called anything from ‘Desert Metal’ to a ‘Santo and Johnny Acid Trip’. 12 years is quite a long stint in this modern age, with the masses always seeming to bend an ear and eye to everything new and shiny, but only Father Time knows, or will tell, when that stretch will coming burning and crashing beneath him.
“a unique songwriter capable of converting lyrical gloom into musical glory.” – BBC ****
“There are few voices in contemporary alt-country quite so adept at wresting consolation from the depths of despair as Hinson’s sonorous baritone.” ****
