Discography

  • Prairie Ocean

    Various Artists

    July 2014

    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. “Keep On Moving” tells the tale of returning home with pounding drums and strings in the background. “The Same Air” reminds us that despite our differences, we all breathe the same air. “I-5”, the heaviest track on the album, explodes as a musical journey down the I-5 freeway in California.

    Various Artists

    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.
