“So few truly original figures exist in pop music that Dan Hicks should be a national treasure.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“Dan Hicks is fly, sly, wily and dry!”—Tom Waits
“The eternal hipster, purveyor of the drollest and most swingin’ tunes the rock generation ever enjoyed.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune
Singer-songwriter Dan Hicks is truly an American original. Since the early 1960s, Hicks has deftly blended elements of swing, jazz, folk, and country music to create the appealing sound he sometimes calls “folk jazz.” The lyrics of his songs range from the simply sublime to the sublimely ridiculous, all presented with his uniquely skewed and inscrutable touch.
