Micah P. Hinson

Singer/songwriter Micah P. Hinson was born in Memphis, TN into a strict Christian fundamentalist household. He began to experiment with music -- as well as narcotics -- upon moving to Abilene, TX in his teens. Despite serving jail time, fighting addiction, and declaring bankruptcy -- all before the age of 20 -- Hinson became immersed in the local music scene. His debut was recorded in the winter of 2003 with assistance from Texas chamber pop collective the Earlies, which provided a lush backdrop for Hinson's winsome tales of love, loss, and regret. Micah P. Hinson and the Gospel of Progress was released on Sketchbook Records in April of 2005. It was followed in 2006 by Baby and the Satellite, his first for Jade Tree. Hinson kept busy that year, also issuing the debut EP Lights from the Wheelhouse from his more experimental project, the Late Cord, and another album for Jade Tree, Micah P. Hinson and the Opera Circuit, that fall. For 2008's Micah P. Hinson and the Red Empire Orchestra and 2009's all-covers album All Dressed Up and Smelling of Strangers, he switched to the U.K. label Full Time Hobby. Micah P. Hinson and the Pioneer Saboteurs, his fourth album of original material, arrived the following year.
