Sara Hickman has garnered recognition as a captivating singer/songwriter, vocalist and musician, with artists such as Shawn Colvin, the Flatlanders, Robert Earl Keen, Willie Nelson and many others covering her songs.
As Rolling Stone puts it, “Tuneful, clever and carefully observed, Sara Hickman’s material has all the strengths expected of a contemporary Texas songwriter, plus one more – whimsy.” Sensitive and fearless, Hickman’s diverse and emotional songwriting capabilities appeal to a wide range of audiences.
Since she started performing at the age of seven, Hickman has been embraced by both followers and critics. The Associated Press proclaims, “Seek out her albums and club shows for her melodic sense, excellent guitar playing, rich voice and mix of sunny optimism with heartache.” Hickman’s home state of Texas loves her too, naming her the “Official State Musician of Texas,” joining luminaries such as Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett.
A guest performer on at least 25 albums by other recording artists, Hickman has toured with Billy Bragg, Dan Fogelberg and Nanci Griffith, and has opened for other artists including the Decemberists, John Hiatt and Lucinda Williams. She has also appeared in and sung on national ad campaigns for Walmart, Popeye’s, Daisy Sour Cream, Southwest Airlines, Fannie Mae and numerous others. And the journey is far from over.
