Killick Erik Hinds

Killick Erik Hinds (born 1972) of Athens, Georgia is active as a composer, performer, and promoter of a wide range of music. He plays quartertone electric guitar, as well as Big Red harp guitar and the H'arpeggione, an 18-stringed upright acoustic instrument with sympathetic strings, both built by Fred Carlson. Equally influenced by improvisational music and "composed" sounds, Killick's style blends primitive folk, heavy metal, and sacred musics from around the world into a distinct voice. Killick has played with improvisers including Susan Alcorn, Susie Allen, Brent Bagwell, Colin Bragg, William Buchanan, Jeff Crouch, Chris Cutler, Jeremiah Cymerman, Ernesto Diaz-Infante, Lisle Ellis, Tony Evans, Drew Gardner, the Georgia Guitar Quartet, Vinny Golia, Frank Gratkowski, Leslie Helpert, Blake Helton, Carl Ludwig Huebsch, Ben Kennedy, Harald Kimmig, Habib Koité, Peter Kowald, Craig Lieske, Marshall Marrotte, Jeff McLeod, Tatsuya Nakatani, Larry Ochs, Brian Osborne, Ravi Padmanabha, Dennis Palmer, Dave Rempis, Blaise Siwula, Carl Smith, Bob Stagner, Sándor Szabó, Ken Vandermark, Matthew Welch, and Eric Zinman.

Killick started Solponticello Records in 2001, and he released a solo H'arpeggione cover version of Slayer's "Reign in Blood" in 2005. He changed his name from Erik Hinds to Killick Erik Hinds in 2006, and now performs as just Killick.
