This acoustic album is the first of three so far, all penned by Singer/Songwriter Cinqui (pronounced Sinkie, aka Ian Sinclair) , a singer /songwriter who has been performing for many years and was a signed artist under his own name. He has distilled his original sound from his earlier influences. Originally and acoustic artist but, for this album' teamed with a long term friend and musician, Stuart Dixon, whose musicianship and technical expertise were essential in the development of his music.
Hailing from the Midlands he merges Soul; Funk; Country and Blues and everything else you can imagine. The result is a fresh and unique sound that truly invites the listener in. Imagine Dobie Gray mixed with some Bill Withers and Keb Mo, add a touch of Foy Vance then thrown into a pot with Union Station, Lightning Hopkins, Shawn Colvin and Patty Griffin and you are beginning to get warm. Cinqui has now evolved into a five piece band comprising of talented and established musicians to perform at any level, although acoustic is still an essential part of the unique formula.
