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". His lyrics range from the simply sublime to the sublimely ridiculous, all presented with his uniquely skewed and inscrutable touch.
Dan's irresistible sense of rhythm, hip lyrical styling, laid-back vocalizing, and infamous on-stage wit will make most who listen fans for life. He's a snappy dresser, too!
The new album "Tangled Tales' includes David Grisman, Charlie Musselwhite and Roy Rogers playing on Hicks' signature swing.
"Tangled Tales" mashes the outlaw swing music, insightful charm, and brilliant melodies that have endeared Dan to audiences and fellow artists for four decades with his signature understated melancholy that could only be born from a creative genius.
