Steve releases a new CD double album 'Muscle Memory' on Friday September 29th on Lucky Smile Records / Proper Music Distribution. It will be available in digital and CD formats with hard copies of the album available for PRE ORDER now by going to the Gigs Page. This is an album that steps forward whilst looking back. Originally the project was to be a revisit, remix and rework of Steve’s debut album ‘Eventually’, previously only available on vinyl. Inspired by Giles Martin's work remixing Beatles records, we were able to employ cutting-edge Machine Learning (ML)technology to break down stereo mixes into their constituent components, enabling us to rework, remix and remaster the songs. You will find these on Disc 2; newly restored, enhanced, polished and pristine for the digital age. Muscle Memory has grown into a collection of newer songs and timeless Steve Jinski classics ,together with some gems which were (inexplicably!) overlooked at the time of their original inception, and for which only demos or half-finished tracks survived. Once again, ML technology opened up vast new horizons in terms of creative possibilities...
A single 'The Art Of Conversation' taken from Steve's forthcoming double album 'Muscle Memory' is to be released on Friday August 11th. It will be available on all online platforms through Lucky Smile Records/Proper Music Distribution. Lyrically the song is a series of short narrative vignettes that look at how people sometimes fail to understand each other and are unable to express their feelings or resolve their dilemmas. It's often the simple things that are the hardest to get right ... We will post some direct links in the next couple of days where you can either stream or download the track.
Steve will be taking the high road, low road and every road in between as he sets off on the first leg of Scottish tour. We kick off on Wednesday July 26th at Irvine Folk Club. It's a really friendly little club, lovely people, come along you will be made very welcome we can assure you. There is lots of information about the tour, including how to buy tickets on the Gigs page.
Radio Skye ... Ticket giveaway for two lucky people!! The gig is The An Crubh Venue on Friday July 28th. The station will be playing tracks all week from Steve's 'Hope Street' EP and we believe there may also be a sneak preview of the soon to be released single 'The Art Of Conversation'. The gig is part of Steve's Scottish tour which begins a couple of days earlier on Wednesday July 26th at Irvine Folk Club.
Whilst not doing too many gigs so far this year, Steve has nevertheless been pretty busy. So, over the next few days we will post a number of short news items bringing you up to date with all that Steve has been working on over the last few months. The main news aside from 'live' performance updates, centres around a double album that Steve will be releasing in September called 'Muscle Memory'. The record will be available as a Double CD and as a digital download. The first download single taken from that album is due for release at the end of July and it is called 'The Art Of Conversation'.
Steve's gigs in Scotland this year will take a slightly different format. Instead of the usual big summer trip, Steve will be doing two shorter tours, one in July and the other in October. We have four shows confirmed so far including a welcome return to Irvine Folk Club and the An Crubh Venue on the Isle of Skye. We expect more to be announced in the next few weeks. All the details can be found on the Gigs page.
