Heavy Hinges is a sublime ruckus... a beautiful collision of rock, soul, and gospel. Heavy Hinges initially gravitated toward playing traditional songs, unearthed from field recordings of chain gangs, gospel groups, and fishing boat crews. They found the coarse and rustic nature of the music and the dark, yet hopeful imagery of the lyrics suited them rather well. While songs from the distant past proved inspiring and fruitful, it was never their intention to travel down a musical path quite that narrow. So, they began crafting their own ideas into a catalog of original material, frequently referencing the gospel groups, chain gangs, and fishing boat crews from those old recordings, but at the same time, remaining true to their existing foundation of r&b, blues, and rock & roll.
