HERRICK's Rare demo recordings!
No tuning - All Rare Demos
Every ten or so years an artist or band comes along that is so unique, so fresh and so original sounding that it starts a whole new trend for rest of the music industry to follow. HERRICK is one such band.
With intricate harmonies and a distinctive sound that combines the best of country, rock and blues, Herrick shatters the current country music mold and creates a new path for it to follow.
Full of heartfelt lyrics, their music is dynamic and appealing, yet it is unconstrained by 'formulas' for hit songs. It's real, it's earthy and it doesn't pull any punches when it hits you right in the gut.
Herrick is formed by lead singer/mandolin player Donna and brothers Kerry (bass) and Kevin (guitar) Herrick. The Herrick brothers began as a duo, singing gospel music around their hometown of Spokane Washington. A few years later, Donna joined the group and they began to write their own music. Their never-ending energy and strong work ethic quickly led Herrick to playing rodeos, festivals and clubs all over the Northwest and performing with acts like Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, George Jones, Emmylou Harris, Hank Thompson and Ray Price.
"We found our music didn't appeal to just one kind of crowd, and that's because we write songs that are real and a reflection of how we are feeling musically at that time," says Kerry. His brother Kevin adds, "We don't write to a template or try and calculate how a tune might sell in some market. It just comes out of us naturally as we pull a song together. It's very organic."
"Of course it's great when someone comes up and tells you how much one of your songs touched them," comments Donna. "But we write music for us first, because we love it. It's the only way we know how to make music. And we've found that what we are feeling or going through is often what's happening to our fans too so it speaks to them as well."
When Herrick first came to Nashville, industry insiders labeled the band 'A breath of fresh air'. Different is very intriguing, and Herrick has been winning fans and music insiders over with every gig they play. With diverse influences like Boston, Ricky Skaggs, Merle Haggard, The Eagles, Emmylou Harris, Rush, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and more it's no wonder their music combines many elements from different musical styles into a new and unique blend.
Their innate instinct for creating high quality music has helped Herrick stand out from the crowd as they tour to Standing Room Only crowds across the country.
Herrick is now in position to take their music to a wider audience and stand beside their idols making their own distinct mark in the annals of music .
