Singer/songwriter Micah P. Hinson will play his first US solo show in 10 years at The Foundry, July 15 at 7:30 PM.

Descended in part from the Native American Chickasaw tribe, Hinson's gospel-influenced, alt-country music is best described as "Folk Noir". Micah P. Hinson and the Gospel of Progress, his first album, was produced in 2004 by the Earlies, Micah's friends, collaborators and sometimes tour buddies (where they play as his backing band). In 2005, his earlier 4-track recordings were produced and released properly as an album under the title The Baby & the Satellite. Micah has toured with and opened for artists such as Will Oldham, Iron & Wine, David Gray and Calexico.

Micah P. Hinson and the Musicians of the Apocalypse's most recent album When I Shoot At You With Arrows, I Will Shoot To Destroy You was recorded in 24-hours. There are many in this world that do not believe in The Apocalypse. There are many in this world that do believe in The Apocalypse. Yet, even with this, many would easily agree that life is made up of many starts and stops, many deaths, many rebirths -- physically and spiritually. Hinson focuses on this concept in his vision of the inevitable way of the human condition.
