    Guitarist David Hinckley releases his new double single “Your Man (On The Inside)” / “Western Nights”

    Composer/guitarist David Hinckley releases his new double single "Your Man (On The Inside)" and "Western Nights". The tracks are modern takes on 70's instrumental symphonic soul informed by the cinematic sounds of Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes, and Adrian Younge. Great composition, excellent string arrangement, and his guitar sounds so beautiful, a bit nostalgic, and very cinematic. This man needs more recognition! Hinckley's guitars call to mind everyone from Wes Montgomery and his smokey octave melodies to Ernie Isley's psychedelic solos. The string arrangements, composed by Hinckley and engineer Elio DeLuca, are straight from the playbook of Thom Bell and his iconic work with The Delfonics and The Stylistics.   Watch…
