Album Notes
"[Evokes] the jangly guitars of the Byrds and the California dreaminess of the Mamas & Papas...sweet vocal harmonies." --THE WASHINGTON POST

"The lovechild of early R.E.M. and The Softies...[with] the slightest hint of Americana/alt-country." --MUSIC MONTHLY

Rich with harmonies and rooted in rock, The Hickories offer "warm, inviting songs that [combine] the best of folk and country" -- according to The WASHINGTON POST. The Arlington, Virginia-based band forges its signature sound with jangly guitars and lush harmonies, evoking influences like the Byrds, early R.E.M. and the Cranberries.

And people are taking notice: The band has been featured at many festivals and conferences, including the National Cherry Blossom Festival, the Millennium Music Conference and the Six Points Music Festival (which featured Army of Me in 2006). They play to packed houses at DC-area venues such as IOTA Club and Cafe, and open for acts with national audiences like Lizzie West and Emmett Swimming. And the BILLBOARD Worldwide Song Contest has awarded the band six Honorable Mentions since 2003.

The Hickories released their debut recording, Lost in Pennsylvania, in the fall of 2005 with former drummer Michael Leger and former bassist Brian Vradenburg. One listen, and you're hooked by the "tuneful songs that are hard to forget" (ON TAP Magazine). Whether on a recording or in live performance, if the gorgeous voices of Michelle Volpe and Meghan Sharp don't pull you in, then Mike Conner's tasteful guitar lines or Dale Hailey's and Phil Dennison's tight rhythm section will.

2006 finds The Hickories busy touring the East Coast to promote Lost in Pennsylvania and working on new material.

WOW, what a great CD! ...can't wait for more!
I haven't been this enthusiastic about a CD in years!

Editor's Pick,

Stellar inside and out.
The Hickories never rest on their laurels. Instead, they punctuate their songs with Americana-infused rock-n-roll and girl-group harmonies. For the Arlington area of Northern Virginia, The Hickories find their neighboring city, Washington, DC, can't keep a secret--whether it's political or, in their case, a talented girl-fronted pop-rock outfit. Because believe me, people will be talking about this band. Once word gets out about how crafty they are with multiple layers of harmony, there's no doubt that they'll become more than just one of the more popular bands on The Washington Post's MP3 site. Stellar inside and out. -- J-Sin

I really liked Lost in Pennsylvania:

...tuneful, edgy singing and playing
...complex harmonies
...general chiaroscuro effect.

Congrats on a fine piece of work! I look forward to hearing more.
