Tangled Tales - CD Release Party!
Revered by such legendary artists as Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Bette Midler, Brian Setzer, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffett, Linda Ronstadt, Rickie Lee Jones, and tons more iconic legends of music, Dan Hicks’ serves up his unique fashion, attitude and swagger that are embodied in his eccentricity and discontent with mainstream rock. His counter-culture appeal, which has twice landed him on the cover of Rolling Stone, has always been rooted in his songwriting. His lyrics have been touted as some of the sharpest-tongued, driest-witted, and subtly hilarious bits of irreverence ever committed to rhyme. He sets these lyrical gems to quirky tunes that trade on a bagful of jazz chords and an irresistibly propulsive rhythm. This music gets under your skin, and the lyrics are set loose upon your unsuspecting brain. It's one hell of a good time.
With his latest CD, Tangled Tales, Dan is at it again with a brand-new collection of compelling and witty tunes. Featuring the same swinging music and insightful charm that has endeared him to audiences and fellow artists alike, Tangled Tales features a world-class collection of musical talent, like the legendary David Grisman, Charlie Musselwhite, and slide-guitarist Roy Rogers, and eight great new original tunes that feel like instant Dan Hicks classics (and some choice cover tunes too).
