About Jason...

Jason Hinchey Silk was born in...

Born in rural Ireland

Born in rural Ireland

Jason Hinchey was born in rural Ireland in 1976. He lived in a tranquil farming community until he was ten years old. Although he was not in an urban setting he was touched by Irelands vibrant music scene which ranged from traditional Irish folk to scathing punk and pounding rock, but Jason's fondest memory is of his mother’s then favourite singer, Don Williams whose music was full of joy and heartache delivered in his memorable voice still conjures up images of a happy childhood with his mother and sister Rona in Ballincalloo co limerick.

Coventry

Coventry

In 1986 Jason and his mother moved to Coventry and he was engulfed by that city's diverse culture and its strange new sounds and tastes.

Christy Moore Encounter

Christy Moore Encounter

Jason encountered Christy Moore and he related immediately to the style and content of his music which touched upon their common Irish sensibility emotional and political aspirations.

In England

In England

In 2004 back in England, Jason's hedonistic life style caught up with him and brought him to his knees, and it was during this time of crisis and emotional devastation that Moore's music shone like a beacon, encouraging, supporting and urging him on until he regained a degree of serenity and equilibrium but now needing an outlet for his anguish and hope which he began to seek and discover in performance.
