Micah P Hinson – What Does it Matter Now?

This one is from Micah’s 2022 album I Lie to You. He’s been around in my consciousness/record collection since about 2007. A haggard, harrowed voice like treacle over a cheese grater, he’s had a chequered past and by his own admission is a flawed individual who hasn’t necessarily made the best choices in life – a journey poured heart and soul into his songs that are raw and powerful.

I’d been listening to his music probably for a year or two before I got to see him live and was taken aback at how young he was. I’d been assuming this fella was in his seventies with a lifetime of woe behind him! Beautiful and heart-rending stuff.
