Tom is recording a new solo acoustic album!

This week I plugged in my guitar at Blueprint Studios in Manchester, with Gary Hadfield at the recording desk, and recorded a new solo album, tentatively titled ‘Hymns for the Hungry’. It should be available online and in shops for this Christmas. A sister album to last year’s ‘I Love My Job’, it contains acoustic versions of the songs featured on its predecessor. Its sounding light and fresh (even if I do say so myself!)

This weekend sees shows and typical mad Hingley routing in evidence once again as on Friday I play Warrington’s Live Bar whilst Saturday sees me 400 miles northwards to Peterhead at the Rescue Hall with Undercover Oasis. On Friday I’m playing a private party in Lincoln. Glad I’ve got my car serviced!

This week my wife and younger kids are away on a holiday in the Lakes, so I’m supposed to be doing my accounts and writing my new book, but I’m actually catching up on some valuable Netflix bingeing (but don’t tell anyone). Ex Machina Psycho and Midnight Cowboy have already been given the once over.

A new show announcement – I’m playing the Junction Inn Pontefract Road WF7 5AR on Sunday September 1st at 5.00pm.
