Micah P. Hinson: At first blush

Dear Readers,

I fell in love with a song this morning. It’s by Micah P. Hinson, who writes and sings beautiful folk music about love, growing up in Texas and coming of age in a time of great change. I’ll tell you readers, I had no idea Micah’s music existed until a few days ago when I saw his name and thought “for some reason I feel like that could be a great musical discovery.” Well this morning, my assumption was proven correct. I watched the video (which you can find below) and was blown away by its simplistic passion and elegance. It was just a strumming of the guitar and Hinson’s wounded, weary voice. But it was something special. It was given as part of a 180-song compilation to benefit Amnesty International. On his fourth record, due out in two weeks, he plays with a wonderful cast of characters called The Pioneer Saboteurs. And I wanted to share it and a couple other gems with you. Because I love you.

Love,

Sean from TWJ
