Micah P. Hinson To Releases New Album 'Micah P. Hinson And The Nothing' On March 10th 2014

Micah P. Hinson was born in Memphis, Tennessee, USA, into a strict Christian fundamentalist household. He began to experiment with music upon moving to Abilene, Texas in his teens. In the relative isolation of this town, he became immersed in the local music scene.  In 2003, Hinson teamed up with Texas collective ,The Earlies, who provided a lush backdrop for his winsome tales of love, loss and regret. 

'Micah P. Hinson and the Gospel of Progress', his debut full-length, was released on Sketchbook Records, late 2004. The album received excellent reviews from a number of critics, captivated by Hinson's stark exploration of the emotional fall-out from a failed relationship. The following year his early recordings were given a proper release on Jade Tree, under the title 'The Baby and the Satellite'. Tours followed, with the young artist opening for acts such as Will Oldham, Calexico and Iron & Wine. 

2008 saw the release of  'Micah P. Hinson And The Red Empire Orchestra' - his first album for the UK label Full Time Hobby - followed by the covers album 'All Dressed Up And Smelling Of Strangers' - a collection of songs with obvious personal resonance - and in 2010, his most recent, the stunning, 'Micah P. Hinson And The Pioneer Saboteurs'. 

'Micah P. Hinson and the Nothing', his first release on French label, Talitres, comprises a collection of songs written before a bad car accident, whilst touring Spain during the summer of 2011. Flown back to Texas, doctors were consulted and the future use of Micah's arms hung in the balance. With this in mind, he began listening to demos he'd made before the Spanish trip. The songs took on a new light and he began sending them off to people around the world  including The Twilight Sad and his Texan side-kick, T. Nicholas Phelps. With their help Micah began to create a record without the use of his arms. 

Micah was subsequently invited to record in Santander, Spain, at Moon River Studio. For two weeks and two days, with the assisitance of enginer by Fernanda 'Mac' Macava, Micah realised what was to become 'Micah P. Hinson and The Nothing', working with an astounding array of local musicians - The Aquattro String Quartet.

According to Micah, "A grand amount of time and a grand amount of love was put into every song."
