Brian Hinson & the Story of Today
Brian started his music career in Richmond, VA with The Limit, touring the East Coast playing over 200 shows a year and ultimately winning Best Unsigned Band in the country (DC 101). The Limit released “Eyes for You” and enjoyed light East Coast airplay, sharing the stage with numerous national acts, including Eddie Money, Joan Jett, Robin Trower, Hoodoo Gurus, The Producers, Patti Smyth and ELP (Richmond Coliseum.)
Hinson moved on to record “Oh So Black” with The Boneshakers (Cellar Door), touring the East Coast and enjoying light air play (“In A Heartbeat”). The Boneshakers were also featured on MTV Basement Tapes.
Brian’s work includes additional successful projects, such as The Painters, where he produced and performed on the critically acclaimed “Decelerate.” The Painters performed several major label showcases in Nashville and L.A.
With Story of Today, Brian has released two albums to date “Through the Light” and “Restoration,” which includes the song writing of Brian Hinson with Bruce Crump (Molly Hatchet), Mark Schultz and other amazing friends through the years.
Brian stepped back from touring and live performance to focus on family. Now 15 years stronger, Brian returns to the stage in support of two upcoming Story of Today records (2019/2020).
Reviews from listeners
Read Interview from Art Locally
“One of my favorite CDs of all time :)"
"Lots of influences including early Elton John, Pink Floyd, Beatles... but in the end, unique. Headphones on and a rainy car ride or evening”
“Your story is so beautiful. Thanks for following your heart!”
“This one's a keeper! I have read a lot about what influences can be heard in this music, and there is a lot of truth to the comparisons. I felt more of a sense of inspiration than influence. This CD is a rare find, and is tough to put away. Great stuff!”
“Head phones required! The music made me laugh and made me cry, it brought joy to my soul. What an incredible gift.”
