about

On the full-length follow up to his critically acclaimed The Baby and the Satellite EP, MICAH P. HINSON offers a substantiated account of misery and triumph, evoking translucent memories and physical struggle. Recorded, arranged and produced mainly at home in Abilene, TX during an ironically twisted period of heavy medication and physical torment brought on from recent back surgery, Micah P. Hinson and The Opera Circuit is the product of rallying above physical torment, facing proverbial closeted skeletons and discovering eventual resolution through the power of euphonic connection. Supported by a revolving cast of seasoned players, including Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers), The Opera Circuit imparts a newfound, expansive and virtual basement jam quality to Hinson's trademark no man's land take on hushed, emotive balladry. At the end of the tunnel, Micah P. Hinson and The Opera Circuit is a veritable reminder that progress through pain can be intimate, heartfelt and epically necessary.
