Allen Hinds was raised in Alabama, exposed to blues early, trained in jazz, toured the world with top R&B and jazz artists. He's been on staff at Musician's Inst. In Hollywood for 20 years.
Obvious influences include Robben Ford, Alan Holdsworth, but has developed a style purely his own. Harmonically rich without being too academic, soulful without sounding cliché'.
Great tones as well as choice of notes. Melodies are the upmost importance in his songs and solos.
A nice and pleasant change from the all too prevalent "shredders" or "new blues sensations".
