Derek, Nathan, & Spencer have been singing and living the musicians life since before they even had a choice. Having parents who sang as a duo together professionally impacted the Hinckley Brothers like nothing else could. From the time little Spence joined the trio at about age six these three bro’s have known that something very cool happens when they get together. These brothers were raised in East Tennessee where their blood runs Orange and White and where down home music lives.
Songwriting and performing are a family tradition for the Hinckleys as they've followed the lead of their parents who have written and performed professionally for many years including at Dollywood for 10 years, the Opryland Hotel, and way back in the day enjoyed moderate radio airplay in the southeast for songs they recorded. They tell the story about playing across the street from Randy Travis before he was "Randy Travis" and that he sent folks to Opryland to hear them!
Influenced by artists and bands such as the Eagles, Alabama, Bryan White, even R&B groups like Boyz To Men, The Hinckley Brothers have a wide ranging musical taste and it shows by the creativity that comes across in their songwriting and vocal arrangements. To them great music is whatever sounds good to the ear and feels good to experience...and of course it has to have harmony!
Derek lives in Nashville and together with Nate and Spe are in the process of recording some brand new material with Musician/Producer Kent Wells at his studio in Franklin, TN. They have teamed up with Kent, Dolly Parton's Producer and band leader, and are now mixing and finalizing their most killer music ever... recordings that really show off the vocal blend the Hinckley's are known for and showcase Derek's unique and polished songwriting.
In 2004 the group released their first full length studio album entitled "Everything I Need". This was a collection of mostly Faith-Centered material that had been written and recorded over the previous 3-4 years. Their latest release in 2011, "In Red and Blue", highlights the fan favorite "My Hero" and 13 other original country tracks recorded in Nashville.
Raised in Knoxville, TN, just down the road from artists such as Kenny Chesney and Rodney Adkins, The Hinckley Brothers breathe music and have for many years. They were mentored by an inspirational Powell High School choir director and left a legacy at the school of talent and a passion for performance. They have had the life experience of having parents who made a living performing and that has left an impression that is obvious. These three brothers will always play and sing together... It still remains to be seen how far reaching their influence and music goes.
