Ric Hickey is a wildly adventurous guitarist with a unique style that seamlessly blends Country, Blues, Jazz, Bluegrass and Rock with untethered humor and a deep reverence for American roots music and songcraft. Keith Richards meets Willie Nelson meets Frank Zappa.
A fixture on the Cincinnati, Ohio music scene for nearly 3 decades, Ric Hickey has been heralded as one of the finest guitarists the city has produced. While Hickey's blazing electric guitar playing is frequently compared to the work of Adrian Belew, Angus Young, and Jimmy Page, his acoustic instrumentals slash and sparkle with a wholly unique approach that has been compared to Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges. Hickey's acoustic vocal tunes cleverly blend Chicago Blues, New Orleans' Jazz, Kentucky Bluegrass, and the more traditional Country & Western sounds of Nashville, TN and Austin, TX.
