Once in a lifetime an artist or band comes along that is so unique, so fresh and so original that it starts a whole new trend for the rest of the music industry to follow, Herrick is one such band. With intricate harmonies and a distinctive sound that combines the best of folk, rock, blues and country, Herrick shatters the current country music mold and creates a new path for it to follow. A true One-Of-A-Kind Band.
While other independent artists sit in the shadows, waiting for their “big break”, Herrick is out there working. Herrick has already seen things that most artists could only dream of. And surprisingly, they have done all of this with no record deal.
Herrick music is so catchy and their drive to succeed made us want to place their music on our site. Many musicians say they want to make it but when they see the work, many fall away. Herrick is not that type of band when they saw the work needed they strapped up and started hacking their way to the top. Check out this interview we had an opportunity to do with them while still being road warriors from California to Texas in the next few days.
