PressStunning New Single “Some Kind of Lonesome” By Herrick; A Brilliant Prelude to Much Anticipated New Album
For immediate release: Contact Brandy Reed (615) 830-3508 email@example.com
Nashville, TN (January 12, 2021)-Christened by Music Row Magazine and Billboard as “the real deal” and “the next great female voice of this generation,” husband and wife duo Herrick returns this year with their third studio album “Sunderland Road.” The first single “Some Kind Of Lonesome” will be released on January 18th, a stunning ballad that is equally as heart-wrenching as it is majestic. Its inspiration was born out of Donna Herrick’s loss of her mother this year and the loneliness through a calendar year that feels, to many, to be the very definition of the word. The profound imagery of the music video turns many tides of the soul yet it is not without the life raft we all cling to, which is each other. “Some Kind Of Lonesome” is a brilliant prelude to the much-anticipated new album that will no doubt stand as Herrick’s tour de force. “Sunderland Road” is slated for release in the summer of 2021. In anticipation of the album’s release, fans can get a revolutionary music experience by signing up on the band’s website where they will receive Herrick perks directly to their email inbox. Over the course of four days, you will receive a free digital copy of their new single before it is released, behind the scenes footage of the making of the music video, printed lyric sheets, songwriting memos, and more.

Nearly every single successful band who has ever been will tell you that the relationship between band members is very much like a marriage. When you spend hours, days, months and eventually years together, sit side by side through mile after mile as you travel the country, and watch as your creations are born and breathe the breath of life, then you pretty much have a true understanding of marriage. For Kerry and Donna Herrick, that bond was sewn with a double threaded needle being that they are, in fact, married, both literally and musically. Their partnership started all the way back in junior high school, a couple of kids growing up together in Spokane, Washington. Kerry grew up with his 5 brothers and sisters surrounded by southern gospel music. Donna was born a truly gifted singer, but her mother was the only person on the planet who knew it. Painfully shy, she wouldn’t dare open her mouth to anyone else…that is until Kerry came along. Finally joining in and lending her voice as she watched him and his brother sing in their ritual jam sessions, Kerry could not believe his ears. At that moment the die was cast and their musical chemistry set in motion. Herrick is the patchwork of two lives long lived together. Sewn up in organic composition and exquisite harmonies, theirs is a fabric held together with steel thread.
Their migration to Nashville started with a fluke kind of situation. They released some songs online in the early stages of the internet revolution and one of those songs “If You Don’t Have Love” hit the Top 20 on the Christian Country Music Association Chart. After traveling to Nashville to perform at the CCMA Awards show, and taking sage advice from an industry mentor, they then made a permanent residence in Music City. You could fill a book with the stories of all that has happened since then. With pen in hand they very nearly signed a major label deal early on, but due to merging of companies, that fell through. Instead of waiting for new interests to develop, they went full blown DYI releasing music independently. Their lack of major label support did not hinder the impact their music was having. Their 2012 debut album “New Dance” co-produced by Donna and Kerry, Michael Bonagura and Buddy Cannon delivered two singles that hit the Music Row Chart and a music video that hit the Top 20 on The Country Network’s Countdown. Their second album “Cottonfields” followed in 2016. High praise from some of the most coveted music critics hovered around them with regularity over the years including music historian Robert K. Oermann of Music Row Magazine and award-winning journalist Chuck Dauphin of Billboard Magazine, both citing Herrick as “the real deal.” Chuck Dauphin continued by saying “Herrick may very well contain the next great female voice of this generation in Donna Herrick.” The band boasts an impressive list of music awards including two IAMA International Acoustic Awards, “Folk/Bluegrass/Americana “Group of the Year ,“ and most recently, “Entertainer of the Year” and “Female Vocalist of the Year” at the Josie Music Awards, and a Bronze Telly Award. They have also been nominated for two Americana Music Awards.
The lack of restrictions on their creative process has endeared them to music fans that make up a large base across the country. With so much noise in the world coming from every direction, the rise of Herrick’s music above the din is most definitely attributed to their rich melodic persuasion and signature harmonies. Their brand new album “Sunderland Road” is a masterful representation of that. The album is co-produced by Herrick, David Walker and GRAMMY Award-winning engineer Snake Reynolds who has worked on 100 plus multi-platinum albums. Kerry and Donna believe Snake to be a missing link in their recording process, a new chapter to their musical story. His ability to capture all the little nuances in Donna’s extraordinary voice brings forth a monster country release worthy of the genre’s ancestors.
“Herrick’s new single, ‘Some Kind Of Lonesome,’ finds the band singing a great new song with the same fire and conviction as they always show. Do yourself a favor and check it out. Herrick has been a favorite of mine for a long time."- Buddy Cannon/Multiple Platinum Award Producer/Songwriter
“Love, love, love the new single ‘Some Kind of Lonesome.’ Great production and vocal! I've been a fan of Herrick for years and they always live up to my expectations with their talents."- Snake Reynolds/Multiple Platinum Award winning Engineer/Hall of Fame Inductee
"A moving and powerful performance with uplifting lyrics and stunning harmonies to match. Although the subject matter is one that could be said to be rather somber, the beauty of the vocal melody and the strength of the songwriting puts the message across in such a way that makes the listener smile reflectively from ear to ear – something that we all need more of in our lives right now. Fantastic!"- Nick Campling/Director G7th, The Capo Company
"What’s that sound? Oh yes, I remember. It’s called country music. And I don’t mean the overly polished kind that Music Row usually serves us. I mean the Real Deal. Herrick is back to warm my hillbilly heart with ringing reminders of what old-school country can mean. -Robert K Oermann/Music Row Magazine
"This little girl can really sing!"- George Jones

Herrick – Cottonfields
It’s wise to be a little weary when young bands start talking about “roots records”, particularly if you’re aiming for respect as a songwriter. Including traditional folk or blues music on your second release and adopting it as an album title might mean you follow your Muse wherever it leads. On the other hand, it could mean the songwriting impetus behind your first collection has dimmed. Herrick’s fans are spared that fate with the band’s sophomore release Cottonfields. The ten song collection explores traditional American music, but builds off the band’s debut and extends their reach as well. The album production reflects that vocalist and mandolin player Donna Herrick is the album’s indisputable sonic heart, but Herrick isn’t a glorified solo act. The remaining three members are obviously top notch talents in their own right and give Herrick the best possible vehicle for reaching global acclaim.
Herrick doesn’t mess around and starts off with the title song. The cut, popularized by blues artist Huddie Ledbetter, is an audacious choice for an opener. Instead of lulling novice listeners into the band’s musical world, Herrick opts for a statement of purpose. Listeners over a certain age are likely to know this song, but outside a relatively small coterie of people, most under thirty years old are likely unfamiliar with the song. Herrick doesn’t care. They plunge over the cliff with a charging, white-knuckled reinvention of the song Donna Herrick tears into with force and deep emotion. Herrick steps away from the rock posing back into something much more traditionally minded on “Hurt like Heat”, but even the mandolin can’t hide their steady aiming for airtight pop structures, melody, and memorable choruses. Herrick’s rousing vocal is the spark that lights up “In California”, but the accompanying guitar and mandolin, the tempo’s assertive mid tempo stride, and strong lyrics are ideal matches for her. It’s obvious “Life in a Song” aspires to the album’s most thoughtful track and, in a number of ways, the gambit succeeds. Pairing Donna Herrick alone, sans mandolin, with Jefferson Rogers’ acoustic guitar gives this selection a rare intimacy. The lyrics reach a little too far at some points, but the ambition to say something more is laudable and, even if it isn’t entirely successful, it’s one of the album’s indisputable highpoints.
The band’s ambitions return to earth with “Like a Disease”, a relatively simple straight-ahead rocker with some clever songwriting. Herrick really tears into tracks like this with unbridled rock and roll zest which makes the contrasts all the stronger when she shifts gears for songs like “Your Love”. The soft but undeniably deep yearning she conjures with her performance supersedes formula. The album’s closing cut, “Together”, ends the album with a Donna Herrick showcase seconded only by piano. The loping lyricism of the piano playing provides excellent counterpoint for Herrick’s range and powers of dramatic interpretation. It finishes the release on a decidedly classy note that emphasizes the band’s artistry rather than their commercial intentions. They deserve to make lots of money and there’s a lot here worth pushing. Herrick second album, however, establishes beyond doubt that this is a band hoping to write and record quality music capable of standing the test of time.
8 out of 10 stars.
Herrick in Vents Magazine by Lydia Hillenburg
CD REVIEW: Cottonfields by Herrick
Herrick’s sophomore effort, Cottonfields, represents a consolidation of the virtues heard on their debut. This is a band thoroughly committed to recording and releasing modern music that, nonetheless, draws from the deep well of the past without ever merely regurgitating it. Invoking traditional forms can be a cul de sac. If a band doesn’t have a certain amount of distance from the material and/or their own fiercely guarded identity, pastiche results. Herrick straddles that line with a great deal of success.
The above point is perfectly illustrated in the opening song. The album’s title cut is a traditional recast here as light hard rock. Herrick’s members keep the car between the lines – the music pushes towards its conclusion with a great deal of velocity. Vocalist Donna Herrick rips out a stinging lead vocal over the top. Those familiar with this traditional song might initially quibble with the approach, but as the album deserves repeated listens, so do individual tracks like this. This cover is a good example of how bands the caliber of Herrick can bring their own personalities into other material. “Hurt like Heat” is an appealing guitar/mandolin propelled rave up with an exuberant Donna Herrick vocal. Kerry Herrick’s supporting role has a second vocalist should never be underplayed. It’s wholly unique to find two voices so well suited for one another, but more importantly, they demonstrate time after time that they understand how to best use their shared gift.
The band’s rambunctious, rock and roll heart beats strong on “Uh Oh”. Donna Herrick’s voice veers between a foot stomping bluesy bray and softer, almost shirking passages. The band doubles down on that bluesy feel with brief slide guitar flourishes, but the track’s fundamental underpinning remains Herrick’s mandolin and Jefferson Rogers’ taut guitar. Jeff Bradshaw’s drumming, however, deserves mention for its superb job of maintaining a steady tempo while also adding more drama to the track. “Like a Disease” isn’t a particularly cheerful lyrical take on matters of the heart, but the band sets a brisk tempo from the start and doesn’t dawdle. There’s a quasi-punk rock attitude here – replace the mandolin and acoustic guitar with two distorted guitars and you have a mean, brief rock and roll song. The lighter touch that the band’s instruments bring does diminish its attitude.
“Your Love” is a cut of rustic pop bliss. The lap steel lines and other smaller affectations never change the track’s indelible truth – this is a highly accessible ballad aimed for mass market success. This fact doesn’t necessarily sabotage its sincerity or merit. Donna Herrick, once again, redeems any deficiencies with a heart-wrenching vocal and the band, especially guitarist Jefferson Rogers, acquits themselves admirably. The album’s penultimate track “Said and Done” is a final outright blast of blues rock and, arguably, the best example on Cottonfields. Rogers shines on slide guitar again and Herrick’s vocal seems to draw inspiration from his often snarling guitar lines. Drummer Jeff Bradshaw and bassist Kerry Herrick drop the final ingredient into this track with their authoritative swing.
Cottonfields establishes Herrick as one of the best Americana pop/rock bands today flying under mainstream radar. It’s a shame. There are a number of songs included on Cottonfields tailored for mass consumption from first note to last, but there’s more, thankfully. There’s honesty to this music coming off every song and the band’s lead singer delivers them with a passion few can match.

4/5 Stars By: Jason Hillenburg
The dynamite new partnership on the Americana scene today, Kerry and Donna Herrick, follow up their critically acclaimed debut New Dance with this ten song set. It isn’t entirely fair or accurate to pigeonhole what it is that Herrick does. The partners have outstanding collaborators with Jefferson Rogers playing a triple threat of guitar, lap steel, banjo and Jeff Bradshaw keeps everything a steady tempo, but they scarcely confine themselves to aesthetic purity. This is a trio that can flat out rock at crucial points and they aren’t afraid for you to know it. The final amazing part is how they can conjure such sonic power with comparatively weak instruments. Their sophomore album Cottonfield is relentless. It never stops trying to entertain and connect with you from the first song.
The album opens with its title track. Herrick revitalizes this traditional song and reshapes it into a lean, unblinking rock guitar gut punch. Donna Herrick is a dominant vocalist. Her performance here doesn’t recall Reba, Tanya Tucker, or Emmylou Harris. Herrick is in full blues rock mode, ala Janis Joplin, and her unique tone gives the vocal eye-popping passion and momentum. Guitar and mandolin join in the highly melodic “Hurt like Heat”. The singing lacks some of the vinegar heard in the opener, but it shows Herrick’s talent for tailoring her vocals accordingly. “In California” illustrates Herrick’s ability to write focused character-driven songs with strong melodies. The mandolin occupies a prominent position in the mix once again and it gives “In California” an added bounce.
“Uh Oh” brings Herrick back to bluesier territory. The whiplashing riff driving the song gives Donna Herrick a great “hinge” of sorts upon which to hang her vocal. Her voice is in fine form, as always, and bears down hard on every line.”Life in a Song” is a bit of stylistic departure from what came before. The song’s second half is laced with unusual instrumentation and an atmosphere of practically religious calm pervades the tune. Herrick’s singing has enormous sensitivity and dramatically glides through the lyric. While some might decry the words as being burdened with cliché, others will hear plain-spoken poetry driving to the heart of common experiences. “Like A Disease” is another blues-rock stomper with a particularly emotive lap steel guitar solo, but the lyrics are one of Herrick’s few outright missteps. Many will find them to be entertaining and no distraction, but others might hear them as crippled by cliché.
“Freedom Love” begins idiosyncratically with a flurry of sound and chiming guitar notes. It soon settles another mid-tempo marriage of mandolin and guitar hammered home by simplified and cavernous drumming. Herrick wants a solid foundation for their songs and, once achieved, builds from that with their powerful vocal chemistry acting as final key ingredient. Their harmonies are quite strong on this song. The album’s finale, “Together”, opens with Donna Herrick accompanied by nothing piano alone. Kerry Herrick dips in for occasional light backing vocals. It’s a fitting and emotionally naked ending for Cottonfields. Donna Herrick has outstanding talent around her helping to give it its merit, but she truly owns this collection. Every vocal, even on the lesser songs, is an absolute showstopper and worth the price of purchase alone.

ALBUM REVIEW: Herrick’s “Cottonfields” Delivers with Emotional Songs
BY RICK AMBURGEY :: The Roots Music Authority :: No Depression Magazine
The Washington-based band Herrick has been on my radar for a while now. They have been touring now for probably close to two decades. I was very impressed with their 2012 CD “New Dance,” which contained great songs such as “Cry Memphis” and “Walk A Mile.” Even then, the band’s live performances were very impressive.
One thing that makes Herrick stand apart from other bands is the powerhouse vocals of Donna Herrick. She is more than simply a great singer. Donna’s voice is one that demands that you listen. I’m certainly not the only one to think Donna’s voice was special. Chuck Daupin, a writer for Billboard and Music News Nashville, has called Donna “the next great voice of our generation.”
I was excited when I learned that Herrick would release a new CD this April. After listening to the tracks from the new project, I realized that Donna’s voice has gotten even better over the last few years. She could probably sing the phone book and make it interesting, but that’s not the only thing that makes it unique. Donna has the uncanny ability to breathe emotion into a song and make the listener feel something. It’s that moment when the lyrics of a song become more than just words.
In addition to Donna, Herrick is made up of Donna’s husband Kerry, Jeff Bradshaw and Jefferson Rogers. While most people that review Herrick’s music (including myself) often rave about Donna’s vocal abilities, every member of this band play an important role in the band’s sound. The harmonies on “Cottonfields” are wonderful. In addition, the instrumentation and arrangement of the songs is superb. The music helps bring the words to life and it goes a long way help develop the tone of the entire CD.
Fans should be advised that they won’t find a lot of slow songs on “Cottonfields.” The slowest song on the CD is probably the final track, “Together.” For people who have followed Herrick since “New Dance,” this won’t be surprising. Their band of music is positive and upbeat.
The first track on “Cottonfields” is a song that will probably sound a bit familiar. The title track is a cover of a Credence Clearwater Revival song. I think it was an excellent song selection. First of all, it does a good job at setting the tone of the album. If you aren’t a fan of their take on the song, you aren’t likely to like the other 10 tracks on the album. However, if you are like me and think the song is awesome, the tracks that follow aren’t likely to disappoint. Secondly, the song does a good job at showcasing their harmonies.
Except for the title track, all of the other songs were written by members of Herrick. Three songs on the album are a songwriting collaboration of all four Herrick members.
There are also three songs on the album that have been around for a while, having been written and published prior to the recording of the “New Dance” CD. I’m glad these songs were finally recorded. One of these songs, “Your Love,” is a beautifully-crafted love song.
The members of Herrick started writing the new songs on “Cottonfields” in 2014. The songs on this album are very strong and it shows growth in the band’s songwriting abilities. I really like the band’s approach to writing love songs. They resisted the temptation to make love song slow songs and the temptation to fill the songs with clichés that seem to appear in many love songs. These songs are heartfelt and emotional.
One of the standout love songs on the CD is “Life In A Song,” which features the lines “I am yours to hold/Every breath of mine is yours.”
Another stand out track on the CD is a uptempo song that explores the other side of love. In “Like A Disease,” Donna sings, “You keep pushin’ me away, pullin’ us apart, breaking my heart in two.” This song is a perfect example of the great music on this CD.
Throughout this collection of songs, Herrick keeps their sound fresh and original. However, it sounds like they may have been influenced by some of music’s greatest bands, from The Beatles to Fleetwood Mac.
“Cottonfields” will be released on April 15. More information can be found about the band and the new CD on their website, www.herricklive.com.

Sometimes – given the high volume of CD’s that pass across my desk, it’s tough to get anything on the first listen. You typically have to go back, and listen to a disc a few times before you realize whether you ‘get’ the act or not. I only needed one listen to tell you that Herrick is the real deal, and may very well contain the next great female voice of this generation in Donna Herrick.
It’s all in how you interpret it, but in Herrick I hear a mixture of Jennifer Nettles’ phrasing, as well as the rock and blues swagger of one Faith Hill. That afore-mentioned swagger comes across on cuts like “Cry Memphis” and “Walk A Mile,” which was incidentally co-penned by Herrick along with Karen Staley – one time band member for Faith.
Donna is equally at home with more pop-sounding tunes such as “Wicked Maria” and “Love And Misery,” as well more traditional-sounding tunes as “Satan And Grandma,” and the emotionally-charged “Drive.”
The band themselves are just as tight together as Donna is vocally, and when they all get cooking, like they do on “Do You Love Me” or “Too Much Of Too Little,” the results are nothing short of a slam dunk! Simply said, all Herrick needs is to be heard. Soon!

BillBoard Magazine : Herrick Try a 'New Dance'
There's an old saying that if at first you don't succeed, try try again. The members of the rising group Herrick took that old saying to heart, going back and re-cutting parts of their current album "New Dance" several times before arriving at the final result. Lead singer Donna Herrick says it was definitely worth it.
Read MoreStrum Magazine - HERRICK'S "NEW DANCE" IS MIGHTY REFRESHING STUFF
There has been no shortage of female artists with powerful voices in country music. Now, you can add Donna Herrick to a list that includes such artists as Martina McBride, Jennifer Nettles and Dolly Parton. Herrick also includes Kerry Herrick, Jefferson Rogers and Zach Ballard, all of which are great musicians and add to Herrick’s unique sound. However, it’s Donna’s vocals that manage to set Herrick’s music from other bands. With the release of the CD, “New Dance,” Herrick has established itself as a high-energy band that’s very diverse. The CD has a combination of country, classic rock and R&B that is very refreshing. This is one of the CDs you can just play all the way through, and listen to over and over again.
It’s been almost three years since I first heard “Walk a Mile.” It still remains one of my favorites, and I’m glad the band decided to use the story to make it the first track on the CD. It sets the tone for the entire album and gives a new listener a sneak preview of the range of Donna’s voice.
Herrick’s new single, “Do You Love Me,” is a story to which many couples can unfortunately relate – staying in a relationship and going through the motions, while wondering if the other person’s feelings for them has changed. It’s a familiar story, but the vocals on this song make it heartbreaking when Donna pleads, “Do you love me/Baby, I just gotta know/Do you love me, do you love me/If you don’t, then let me go.”
I also love the superb instrumentation in “Do You Love Me”. It just feels like the addition of a mandolin on the song makes the sound complete.
Another of my favorite songs is “Drive,” which talks about wanting to back to the hometown. Donna sings, “Sometimes I miss my hometown/I know my friends are still around/I’d like to go back there again.” The lyrics and music of this song just seem so haunting and reflective that it’s hard not to think about where you’re from while listening. The description of the town in the song paints a peaceful image, and it’s seems that going back would provide the perfect remedy for the hustle and bustle of a fast-paced life.
When I listen to a CD, I like to hear unique songs or at least a new perspective on an old idea. There’s a lot of that on this CD, but one of the best songs is “Satan and Grandma.” It’s one of those titles that catches your eye when you look at the track listing. I know I was very curious about this song. It’s actually a sweet song that tells the story of a woman’s faith. Donna sings, “He tried his best to test her faith/When he put grandpa in his grave/And he talked my grandma into blamin’ herself/ Yeah, Satan knew my grandma well.”
This a complete album that is sure to satisfy most musical tastes. Through strong vocals, great music, and emotional lyrics, Herrick has released a winner.

Nashville-based band Herrick, thanks to its “Cry Memphis” tune, recently captured the Country Song Award in the 11th incarnation of the Independent Music Awards.
Per the act’s PR camp, the group’s intricate harmonies are the icing on the cake, if you will, of a sound that merges “the best of folk, rock, blues and country.” The result thereof is a musical style that breaks from the country mold to forge a direction all the lineup’s own.
Prior to the May 2012 IMA honor announcement, Herrick has been a popular draw on national tours, having opened for the likes of Miranda Lambert, Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney, Hank Williams Jr. and others. The quartet also played the Grand Ole Opry and will return to the BamaJam Music Festival this year as the winners of the 2010 BamaJam Battle of the Bands.

As for the IMA win, the Herrick players—Donna Herrick (mandolin/lead vocals), Kerry Herrick (bass/ vocals), Zach Ballard (drums/percussion) and Jefferson Rogers (lead guitar/lap steel/acoustic)—they’re optimistic the newly secured trophy will fuel their career.
“We are so, so excited,” Donna shared with Examiner.com on May 11. “There are so many incredible independent artists out there. To have ‘Cry Memphis’ chosen by the (IMA) judges as the best of the best means the world to us. There’s a lot of love and hard work in that song.”
Moreover, “We’re headed back to BamaJam in June,” added Kerry of the well-known music festival. “It’s going to be great to head back out on the road with a win like this under our belt.”
The “Cry Memphis” track will be contained on Herrick’s first full-length album, New Dance, which is slated to be unvelied June 4 at this writing. The disc is an independent release from BreakAway Entertainment.

The quality in the delivery of lead vocalist Donna, of Herrick, comes very close to Country Pop. Luckily, the lady knows how to keep an eye on her date and the root sound of the band
drive "New Dance" with soul, country and rock moves.
"Heaven Don't Let Me Down" has rafter lifting vocals tempered with some teasing moans left over from Saturday night.
That middle ground between polish and grit is a well- traveled path for Herrick.
Grooves blow like the wind that stir the spirits around on "Hangmen Hill" and move between sway and stomp in "Hey Savanna", as the track trades lead vocal growls with guitar bites.
Herrick rock their country and leave a lot of the natural country feel of blue-eyed soul and soulful blues in place and noticeable.

Tight Harmonies and Well-Crafted Songs Characterize Herrick
Nashville, TN (September 14, 2009) --- International Acoustic Group of the year, Herrick is so fresh and so original, it nearly defies description.
With intricate harmonies and a distinctive sound that combines the best of country, rock and blues, Herrick is nothing short of compelling. Full of heartfelt lyrics, their music is dynamic and appealing, real and earthy.
With a new album slated for November, Herrick releases the moody and vocally-rich single, “Cry Memphis,” co-written by Herrick and co-writer David Walker and produced by Buddy Cannon.
"We found our music didn't appeal to just one kind of crowd like the cowboys or the jocks, and that's because we write songs that are real and a reflection of how we are feeling musically at that time," says Kerry.
Kerry adds, "We don't write to a template or try and calculate how a tune might sell in some market. It just comes out of us naturally as we pull a song together. It’s very organic."
"Of course it's great when someone comes up and tells you how much one of your songs touched them," Donna chimes in. "But we write music for us first, because we love it. It's the only way we know how to make music.”
Herrick is one of the most requested bands in the Nashville area. Citing influences like Ryan Adams, Ricky Skaggs, Boston, Merle Haggard, The Eagles, Emmylou Harris, Rush, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, Herrick has a flavorful recipe for a brand new musical blend.
The band is passionate about dynamic live performances, and they play with boundless energy and originality. With more than 2,500 shows in their career, Herrick has sold more than 20,000 CDs independently.
"Everyone in our band is able to burn his instrument down to the ground," notes Kerry, matter-of-factly. "We are blessed with the people we play with. They are just top notch."
“Cry Memphis” impacts radio today, just before Herrick launches a promotional tour of the Pacific Northwest. Their new album is slated for release in early November.
