Happy New Year to one and all ... here's hoping it's a positive and productive year for everyone. No sooner will Steve have shaken off the over abundance of mince pies and Xmas goodies, than he will be heading down to Manchester and opening for local legends The Houghton Weavers at Over Hulton Folk Club on Wednesday January 17th. It will be a lovely evening. Get there early to catch his slot, doors open at 7.30pm. See GIGS page for more information.

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.

There is lots of information about the tour, including how to buy tickets on the Gigs page.
