Allen Hinds was raised in Alabama and now resides in California. His eclectic blends of blues/jazz/rock all mesh into a very distinct style of his own. Like a cross between Robben Ford, Alan Holdsworth and Jeff Beck, his music is intelligent, phrasing sophisticated and tone for days. Jimmy Haslip says "It SMOKES", Will Kennedy says "his songs are not based around notey licks, he's all about strong melodies, great phrasing"
Capercaillie have been around for 30 years now, playing their brand of Celtic music infused with the faintest tinge of New-Age studio wankery such as soft synth accents and the occasional tasteful sax solo. Both these elements are apparent in opening track “S’Och A’Dhomhnall Oig Ghaolaich”, which kicks off the band’s latest offering, At the Heart of It All, but so, happily, are the lovely vocals of Karen Matheson, whose voice is by far the more important element of the band’s sound.
