Hinton at the Monkey Bar, Mandurah on Friday

BLENDING the storytelling of folk and roots music with some of the more hard hitting attributes of modern rock, Perth singer-songwriter Robert Hinton is hitting the road throughout WA in support of his new album There Are No Winners Here, Only Beginners Here.

Hinton, who has shared the stage with Oz legends including James Reyne, Mental as Anything and Darryl Braithweaite, appears at The Monkey Bar, Mandurah on Friday August 31.

Having just shared the video for current single Boat in a Bottle, the track portrays a theme found throughout the album that everyone is just a beginner doing their best, facing their fears and taking risks while navigating through the crashing waves of life.

Growing up in Craigie, and still a stone’s throw from the ocean, it’s no surprise the surroundings have had a strong influence on Hinton’s lyrical content.

There are No Winners Here, Only Beginners Here is a solid 10-track offering and Hinton’s third album following Winter Sun (2013) and Explaining Colour (2015).

A regular live fixture up and down the West Coast, Hinton performs solo and with a four-piece band.
