MICAH P. HINSON

Micah P. Hinson’s new album “Presents The Holy Strangers” is described by the artist as being a “modern folk opera.” Telling the story of a war time family, going from birth to love, to marriage and children, to war and betrayal, murder to suicide – spanning all of the strange and glorious places life can lead. We follow their story, we see their decisions, we see their faults and their beauty. We live with them, we die with them.

Two years in the making, Micah wrote and recorded The Holy Strangers in Denison, Texas, incorporating ancient reel to reels, analogue keyboards, old Tascam and Yamaha desks. The recording only entered the digital realm once pre-mastering took place.

Split across two pieces of the vinyl, the 14 tracks which make up The Holy Strangers are at times sparse and haunting; at other times luscious, maybe even euphoric. From the Johnny Cash-style country single “Lover’s Lane,” to the album’s broad, spoken-word centrepiece “Micah Book One”,

The Holy Strangers covers a lot of ground over the course of its hour long running time, appealing to both long-time fans and new ones alike.

L.A. SALAMI

Lookman Adekunle Salami, who performs under the abbreviated name L.A. Salami, is an all-round artist and philosopher, know for creating magnetic post-modern blues.

His love for music began when he first heard Bob Dylan on the radio, subsequently leading him to explore more blues and folk music and inspiring him to write his own songs; unfortunately, however, he could not afford his own instrument and wasn't
introduced to one until he was given a guitar for his 21st birthday.

Over the course of three EPs and one album L.A. Salami has built up a loyal following around the world, with notable support at both US & UK radio from the likes of Bob Boilen and Lauren Laverne. His debut album, Dancing With Bad Grammar, was listed in NPR’s Top Ten Albums of 2016.
