“One of the Twin Cities’ most sophisticated songwriters.” – Star Tribune
Musician and writer Dylan Hicks was born in Austin, Texas, in 1970, and has lived since 1983 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His most recent recording, 2022’s Airport Sparrows, was recorded with Small Screens, a six-piece band—Zacc Harris, Michelle Kinney, Christopher Thomson, Charlie Lincoln, Peter Hennig, and Hicks—that blends pop, jazz, R&B, folk, and chamber music. Other recent recordings include Accidental Birds and Munson-Hicks Party Supplies, a collection of Hicks’s songs mostly sung by John Munson. Hicks is also the author of two novels, Amateurs and Boarded Windows, and has written journalism, criticism, essays, and word puzzles for the New York Times, the Village Voice, Slate, the New England Review, the Paris Review Daily, and many other publications.
