Product Notes

With roots sunk deep in the same storytelling tradition of Texas singer/songwriters like Steve Earle and Townes Van Zandt, Donal Hinely speaks in a voice that is both intimate and authentic. Spinning tales of hard luck, love, missed opportunity and die-hard hope, Hinely writes songs that skirt the outer fringes of country, folk, and straight ahead rock. Dave Higgs, host of NPR's syndicated Bluegrass Breakdown, put it simply: 'this is really good stuff--sharp, insightful writing married to memorable tunes.' His breakthrough CD, We Built a Fire (2003, Scuffletown Records) establishes Hinely as one of the premier Americana artists today. Co-produced by David Henry (Cowboy Junkies, Josh Rouse), We Built a Fire features appearances by Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Kim Richey, guitarist Will Kimbrough (Todd Snider, Rodney Crowell), and members of Wilco, the Edwin McCain Band, and Hayseed Dixie. Some recent praise for We Built A Fire: 'sharply written Americana rooted in the tradition of brilliant blue collar observers like Springsteen and Earle.' -Choice Cuts 'one of the best singer/songwriter albums of the year...5 stars' -Roots Revival 'just brilliant...has the rare ability to completely engross the listener and transport him or her to another place and time' -Dave Higgs, Nashville Public Radio 'this record should bring many new fans into the fold' -Paste 'a considerable new talent' -Folk World '5 stars...extraordinary' -Twang Tone Magazine 'quality songwriting...simply great' -Pop Matters Magazine 'a genuine master...it's time for Donal Hinely to break out of the pack' -Dagger Magazine 'a cocktail of humor and heartbreak' -Americana UK 'what really impresses is Hinely's songwriting' -Country Music People (UK) 'a fine eye for the truths of the ordinary and the shadowy sides of life' -Roots66 Magazine 'much better than anything to come from mainstream Nashville since the Garth Brooks,anti-Hank crowd took over.' -Indie Music 'a breath of fresh air for folks looking for the art form to expand...literate countrified poetics along the lines of Robert Earl Keen, Jr.' -Joe Sixpack's Country Music Guide.
