Hinchcliffe, an L.A. local met Jesi Di Palo at an open mic night
in October of 2008 and have been writing and performing music
together ever since. They became engaged in 09, formed their
own record label in '11, Wini Flashdance Records, and then formed
Wini Flashdance Publishing a year later.
They just released their third studio album that was tracked
at the Village Recorder in Los Angeles. They produced, wrote
and performed with many talented musicians, along with a track
working with Grammy winner Pete Anderson and studio musicians
at Little Dog Records.
Their first album Raw was a collection of recordings from different
studios while on their road trip back to California after moving
to New York for a short time. Some of the studios included:
Jupiter Echo Beach Studios in Jupiter, Florida, where Jesi grew
up; Fudge Recording Studio in New Orleans, Louisiana; 5th street
studios in Austin, Texas; and Oceanside, CA.
For their second album, "Charley & Jesi," they
recorded at the Village Recorder and hired some of the top musicians
in Los Angeles including two-time Latin Grammy winning drummer,
Julio Figueroa, top session bassists, K.T. Tyler and Daniel
Baker, Glendale native that Charley met at jazz band at Hoover
High School. They mastered the record at Capitol Records by
Robert Vosgien, known for his work with No Doubt's Tragic Kingdom.
After self producing, promoting and managing both albums, they
decided to form their own record label. "Nowadays making
music is so accessible to anyone and being that we have the
do it yourself attitude, it just makes sense. We're not waiting
for someone to make our dreams come true, we're doing it ourselves."
They are now planning a tour of the Southeast United States.
