Micah P. Hinson

"The Baby and the Satellite"

Jade Tree Records

With fragility only the lonely, heartbroken or strung-out can produce, Micah P. Hinson's "The Baby and the Satellite" sounds better the second time around.

Somber, disheartening, addicting and drug-induced, "The Baby and the Satellite," containing songs originally composed and released in 2000, has been re-recorded and released.

Minor chords, accented with a tumultuous string of vocals, reminds of Leonard Cohen, Hinson's fragility simple and easy to relate. His novelty voice with storyteller essence of Bob Dylan has instant appeal.

Chronicling life as a 19-year-old living in the country of Texas with his "Black Widow" smoking, boozing and recording on a 4-track, Hinson produced a young epic twice his age.

Having the chance to share these songs on a larger scale through Jade Tree has given new life to the dramedy, a tragic Middle America story of addictions, bankruptcy and imprisonment.

"Despite all the things that I have done, you've come to rescue me," wavers Hinson, perhaps thanking his audience, a muse that brought him a different life.
