Swedish country rocker, Hicks was recently interviewed for Musician’s Friend’s ”The Hub” column. Hicks was asked about his tips for “making it” in the music industry:
Don’t take no for an answer. Don’t let naysayers and haters get you down. Stay true to who you are. Find your own sound, so when someone hears your song they know that’s your song—that YOUR sound comes across. Be inspired by others, but do your own thing.

The duo of Bradford Loomis (guitar, vocals) and Beth Whitney (ukelele, vocals) began as a casual co-writing experiment. From the first time they played together, along with Beth’s husband/collaborator, Aaron Fishburn, the chemistry has been powerful. The combination of Beth’s delicate, pure, and melodious voice and Bradford’s soulful, growling tone makes for a beautifully heart wrenching harmonious blend. With equal parts sweetly anthemic, pop tinged folk, provided by Beth, and Bradford’s gritty, passionate Americana Roots sound, The Banner Days is an intrepid step for both artists. They are currently West Region finalists in the 2014 Mountain Stage NewSong Contest.
