Hinkley


Hinkley, formed in 2000, is a Rochester, NY band whose influences run deep in traditional American music but are often likened to contemporary independent artists such as The Shins, Sparklehorse and Wilco. Formed after another Rochester Band, Muler, was dropped from Dedicated Records in 2000, Hinkley originally started as a recording project consisting of Will Veeder, Sean Leahy (Bass and Drums in Muler) and Stacey Ackerman (Will's wife who provides much needed guidance and background vocals).

Hinkley, formed in 2000, is a Rochester, NY band whose influences run deep in traditional American music but are often likened to contemporary independent artists such as The Shins, Sparklehorse and Wilco. Formed after another Rochester Band, Muler, was dropped from Dedicated Records in 2000, Hinkley originally started as a recording project consisting of Will Veeder, Sean Leahy (Bass and Drums in Muler) and Stacey Ackerman (Will's wife who provides much needed guidance and background vocals). The output of these early recordings was released later in 2000 under the title "Listening for the Breathing". In an attempt to play the recorded material for a live audience they solicited members of other fine Rochester bands for help. Their first show consisted of Will Veeder - Vocals/Guitar, Sean Leahy - Vocals/Guitar, Jona Toll (Visionstain) - Guitar, Keith Parkins (The Quitters,Tiger Cried Beef) - Bass and Charles Leport (Pengo, Visionstain) - Drums. Sean left the band to raise three boys sometime in 2002.

He was replaced by Otto Hauser (Espers, Vetiver). Hinkley recorded a number of songs on their own and put out an E.P. titled "Frail and Poker Faced" in 2004. Otto moved to Brooklyn to play with Espers and was replaced by Matt Brauch (BirdCircuit) who was then replaced by current member Gregory Paul (Autumdivers). In Spring of 2005 Hinkley started working on their latest CD, Estate Sale, with the help of Adam Lasus (Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah, Clem Snide, Yo La Tengo).

Recorded in both Brooklyn and Rochester, the mixing and production duties of the record were split between Adam and Hinkley (Adam mixing half the record remote in Los Angeles and Hinkley mixing the other half in Rochester). Each mix was carefully constructed and well though out, in some cases changes to the arrangement or instrumentation occurred after all the tracks were recorded and mixing was well underway. This approach gives the record a unique feel. Musically Estate Sale encompasses a wide variety of ideas weaving between country, 60's pop and indie-rock, while still grounded in the distinct sound that has given Hinkley its name.

After about a year of recording and mixing Hinkley is excited to be releasing Estate Sale on the Carbon Records Label in spring of 2006. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
