Scott Hinkson is the eyes, ears, brains and brawn behind the visceral and emotional terrain of his own blend of rock/pop/alternative material. Unique enough to poke its head through the common regime of mainstream radio, Hinkson's sound is quick to fight off any hasty categorizing or labelling. However, Hinkson's strong songwriting immediately appeals to the masses as he is sensible enough to understand the importance of melody, hooks, and catchy arrangements in a great tune.

A founding member of Winnipeg band "Far Gone", Hinkson honed his songwriting chops the old-fashioned way - bashing it out in basements and on stages all over town. In 1998, leaving behind a history of notable accolades and three albums worth of material, the band's two charismatic front men, Hinkson and Trevor Tuminski (who would later go on to form Jet Set Satellite) split up the project in favor of toiling away at their respective solo careers.

Since that time Hinkson has been surprising audiences, garnering enthusiastic response from high-profile performances at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival 2001 to 2003, Corefest, televised performances on Global News and A-Channel, along with regular club dates at the Pyramid, the Zoo and Academy Coffee House. Critics have embraced Hinkson's recording efforts during this time when 2003's "Music for the Short Film 'Man Alone'" showcased the darker, melancholy side of his talent.

Whether he's playing alone in an intimate setting or accompanied by a backing band, Hinkson is the axis upon which the music turns, often incorporating keyboards, loops and strange tunings to enhance his creations. Hinkson's material is diverse enough to conjure up power and raw emotion one moment, fragility and uncertainty the next. This duality is convincingly tied together by a compelling vocal with clever twists of melody and the backbone of acoustic guitar his songs are founded on.

Now, in late 2005/early 2006, Hinkson has finished building his formal introduction to you - his official debut album, "Tracking Outside In". His intention: to build up the already healthy fan base he enjoys, secure radio play in the commercial and non-commercial markets, and find an interested management, publishing, and distribution/label arrangement for the album and his future outings and career. The arrival of a strong songwriter like this is rare and Hinkson is sure to be a industry staple as a performer, producer, or whatever will come over the following years. Be sure you arrive with him.
