Talking about the overall themes of his music, Wil Hinkson writes, “It often relates to the deeply emotional side of life and reflects internal needs many people don’t want to admit, but I thrive on it. Such music moves me to some kind of transcendent ideal that connects me to the positive side of life and the living.” Taking into account the manner in which Wil Hinkson came into music, it's easy to see how the music has taken its present sound and form. “Music just seemed to always be with me as far back as I can remember,” Hinkson says. “I had a whole different prior music-related life that unfolded before I was an artist myself, working with projects such as Rush, BTO, Liberace, Nana Mouskouri, Harry Belafonte, [platinum-selling children's artist] Raffi, the Rolling Stones, Michael Cohl … Eventually I started to learn about simple production and was surprised to see I could play at guitar sufficiently and sing my songs.” Wil Hinkson continued writing and recording for years “in the wilderness just recording when I could.” In time, he came to see his own fame. “Some songs took 16 years to complete,” he muses, noting that the reward did bloom. “I issued a CD single that took in about 2,000 radio stations in Spain and a six-track CD, all of which are now being remastered. Then streaming came along and everything changed: my songs went out to the world in a flash. Wow. I have a couple of years of tracks lined up to go to streaming with a multitude of new ones waiting in line.” To his listeners new and old, Wil Hinkson says he's got plenty to look forward to. “The songs continually flood me to the point where it is unlikely I can record them all. Perhaps a song lyric book of unrecorded songs may eventually be an eventual offering.” Spirit and Stone by Wil Hinkson on the Oh Keh Muse independent music label is available online worldwide from quality digital music retailers now.
