Canadian Country Music Sensation, Tim Hicks, Rolls Into Town With His ‘Get A Little Crazy Tour’ On Friday, November 27, 2015 At The Scotiabank Convention Centre In Niagara Falls
September 8, 2015 (Niagara Falls, Canada) -- With 5:01+ (Open Road Recordings/Universal Music Canada), Tim Hicks is sure to cement his reputation as one of Canada’s most dynamic new Country artists. Tim Hicks Get A Little Crazy Tour presented by KX94.7 is bound to get a little crazy with special guests Cold Creek County and Jason Benoit. This fall, Tim Hicks will be coming to the Scotiabank Convention Centre, in Niagara Falls, on Friday, November 27, 2015.
On this, the follow up to his hugely successful 2013 debut, Throw Down, Hicks serves up ample helpings of the grit, humour and good time anthems his audiences have come to expect, but still finds room to stretch out some; showing substantial growth as a singer, songwriter and recording artist. “Throw Down was very much a party record,” Hicks says, a product of the fact he and his band spent so many years playing the bars and providing the soundtrack for countless other people’s party nights.
On 5:01+, however, Hicks was determined to show off a different side of himself.
While Hicks loves to bring the rock on stage and on record, 5:01 also features more introspective, personal songs like his co-write with fellow Canadian songwriters Gordie Sampson and Steven MacDougall, ‘You Know You’re Home.’ It’s a track he describes as “three chords and the truth” and one that dwells heavily on his experiences growing up in the Niagara region; a theme he picks up again on album closer ‘Too Young to Care.’
Front to back, with its wailing guitars, screaming B3s and the St. Catharines based, country singer/songwriter’s signature, high energy vocal performances, 5:01 never lets up. “You have to understand something about me,” Hicks says. “It took me a real long time to be comfortable in my own skin as an artist. I always hid behind a band name growing up, but now, as a grown man with a wife and two kids, I thought it was time to tell some more of the truth about who I am and where I came from and ‘Too Young To Care’ really is about how I was growing up.”
