Songwriter Chris Hickey Goes On Kerouac: Inspired Writing Spree

Via on Jun 9, 2010

I recently wrote and recorded a song, each day, for about three weeks. The result is “Razzmatazz” (featuring “Kerouac”) – 16 songs, just vocal & guitar (and the wild parrots of South Pasadena), recorded in my bedroom on a hand-held voice recorder.

 “I only recently discovered Kerouac and I agree with Allen Ginsberg when he said that Kerouac’s work is ‘The most sincere and holy writing I know of our age.”-Chris Hickey

Here’s a link to listen to and/or download the song “Kerouac”:

 Here’s the video of “Kerouac”:

Chris Hickey has three previous solo records, was a member of the bands “Uma” and “Show of Hands”, and has appeared on records by Joe Henry, Michael Penn, Indigo Girls, and more.
