    July 2014

    The concept of Ryan’s debut album is his story of growing up having two homes. While born and raised in Saskatchewan, Ryan has a large family in California. Through his life he spent most summers living the California dream of beautiful beaches and sun and coming home to Saskatchewan and riding his bike out on the prairies. This album is a love letter to both Saskatchewan and California; half of the album deals with a prairie theme and then the album travels south to California. Prairie Ocean is a roots pop album filled with beautiful melodies, harmonies that pay tribute to surf music and Canadiana. Produced by: Mark Schmidt. Recorded at: Blue Door Recording, Regina.

    February 2018

    Singer-songwriter Hicks worked three years on his latest release. Think of all of the thoughts and emotions that may come to us in the night and you’ll connect to this hard-hitting indie pop album, featuring memorable melodies with lyrical depth. After suffering the loss of his stepmother, who took her own life in 2014, Hicks went inward to look for meaning and his place in the world. Pulsing Colours is a star-studded record featuring Hicks, drummer Jeff Romanyk (Rah Rah), Michael Dawson (Library Voices), Amy Nelson (country artist) and many others. It gives a message of community, survival, love and hope. Recorded at: Studio One, Regina. Produced by: Ryan Hicks.
