Josh Roberts and the Hinges find inspiration in David Bowie
"We're really going all out with this one."
A ‘Mighty’ long time

Josh Roberts and the Hinges - Record Release
It’s late, past midnight on a late-August Tuesday. Josh Roberts is taking a smoke break on the back porch of Front End Audio in Rosewood. He’s here with his friend Alan Moon, trying to get the final mixes right on Mighty Old Distance and Murky Old Time, Roberts’ third record with his backing band, the Hinges.

“Really, I made the record because of the show,” Roberts says. “It’s a Storytellers kind of thing, and I was like, ‘Well, you know what, I’ve got plenty of that stuff that nobody knows.’ It’s never been recorded, and I only play it randomly when I have an acoustic guitar in my hands. It’s not really Hinges stuff, per se.”
Josh Roberts and the Hinges/My War Cry is Amor - Twangville
The most highly anticipated local release of this year (in my book anyway…and by local I'm referring to Columbia, South Carolina) was the sophomore effort of Josh Roberts and the Hinges which hit the streets last month. ...
