Hinkson disappeared into the fade in 2009 and 2010 taking a much needed break after his 2nd release, THE TORRENT SESSIONS - the album's highlighted success in "Contamination Day", a pounding rocker that earned a spot CTV/NBC's "The Listener" and Power 97's "River City Rawks" compilation and #61 out of their Top 97 songs for the 2008 year. Also, "Surrounded" was featured in Sean Garrity's top film "Zooey and Adam".
Scott has returned refreshed and with a varied sound on 2011's release ONE BESIDE TWO, his 3rd album balanced with half new and old material. The result is a more organic sounding record, highlighting Hinkson's voice and writing abilities. More mellow and slightly darker than the other two releases, ONE BESIDE TWO paints landscapes of loss, recovery, and struggle within all through a simplified sound overall still accented with his ambient, haunting leads and moodiness that define his production style.
Guest musicians include John Huver (the Perms), Mike Onufreychuk and Nicole Poklitar (both Main Street Exiles), and Trevor Whatman. The album finds some first co-writes with Murray Krawchuk and Clinton Hough and Hinkson behind the drum kit for most of the tunes.
