Micah P. Hinson and the Nothing, is his first release on French label, Talitres and comprises a collection of songs written before his car accident, whilst touring Spain during the summer of 2011. The songs took on a new light during his recuperation and he began sending them off to people around the world including The Twilight Sad and his Texan side-kick, T. Nicholas Phelps. With their help Micah began to create a record.
Micah was subsequently invited to record in Santander, Spain, at Moon River Studio. For two weeks and two days, with the assistance of engineer by Fernanda ‘Mac’ Macava, Micah realised what was to become ‘Micah P. Hinson and The Nothing’, working with local musicians - The Aquattro String Quartet.
According to Micah, “A grand amount of time and a grand amount of love was put into every song.”
