Micah P. Hinson " All Dressed Up And Smeling Of Strangers"

Micah P. Hinson is a singer-songwriter hailing from Texas. His gravelly voice and sometimes out of tune way of singing make him quite peculiar. There is no denying the man has got talent though.

Hi new double album All Dressed Up And Smelling Of Strangers compiles 16 covers given the Hinson treatment.
Classics by John Denver, Leonard Cohen, Roy Orbison, Leadbelly and others are revisited here. Some with better results than others [ I'm not sure how to rate his My Way cover just yet]

There is no official single or video yet but here's his version of Centro-Matic "Not Forver Now"
