TALENTED teenager Jack Hinks is looking forward to a busy few months, with time in the recording studio being coupled with more gigs.
Jack, who recently made the move from Biggar to Edinburgh, will return to the studio in February to work on a new EP with his backing band.
With a growing collection of songs and a small army of fans, the 19-year-old is fast becoming a favourite in the Edinburgh club scene.
Jack said: “Last year I released the three-song acoustic EP but this time around I’ll be working with my own band, which will give the songs more energy. I write by myself but when the band start working on a song they can take it in a different direction.
“I like having songs that I can perform acoustically and with the band.
“Last week we played a gig in Sneaky Petes in Edinburgh and before that we met up for a session.
“I played a tune for the guys at the end which I only thought would be an acoustic one but they did it in a totally different way.”
