Dan Hicks Is Back

(PR) Dan and his Hot Licks are at it again with a brand-new collection of compelling and witty tunes on his latest CD, Tangled Tales, due out March 24, 2009 on Surfdog Records.

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, including instrumental virtuosos David Grisman, Charlie Musselwhite, and slide-guitarist Roy Rogers, and 9 great new original tunes that feel like instant Dan Hicks classics (and some choice cover tunes too).

Revered by and also having collaborated with such legendary artists as Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Bette Midler, Brian Setzer, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffett, Linda Ronstadt, Rickie Lee Jones -- 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, quiet, quagmiric tunes that trade on a bagful of jazz chords and an irresistibly propulsive rhythm.

Produced by Grammy-winning roots music producer Chris Goldsmith, the warmth of the recording and the quality of the songwriting are evident throughout. It's sure to be one hell of a good time.
