Jack Hinks @ Sneaky Petes

We think this is album cover material!

Last Saturday the Urbanity team went to Sneaky Pete’s in the Cowgate, Edinburgh for a fantastic evening of live music. Here we have access to exclusive pictures from the event’s official photographer Skye Lyon, and Jack’s reaction to his new bands’ debut sold-out gig.

Mad Gerald and The Litigators played great sets, but the headliner Jack Hinks stood out for us. A talented guitarist and vocalist, he was supported by a lively sextet of gifted musicians and cheered on by a packed crowd of music lovers.

The violins added a new, creative spin.

 Jack on his origins and inspirations: “Ever since I first picked up a guitar, I’ve been obsessed. It started off as a very personal, introverted experience, but some 7 years along the line I have a 6 piece band and now openly see music in everything I do.My process is very much the same, but the band has now allowed me to realise what I’m hearing in my head, and that’s a very exciting thing after years of being predominantly an acoustic artist.”
