Reviews: Austin Chronicle

After moving to the Dallas-Fort Worth area from the Midwest in the mid-’80s, Sara Hickman’s Piscean pluck immediately charmed most of the state right out of its Levis….in a live context she’ll make you hang onto your belt loops for dear life.

A former Dallasite who got wise and moved to Austin, Hickman never does what’s expected of her, but always does it well.

SARA HICKMAN: Hickman brings the kind of exuberance to her music that gives "female singer-songwriters" a good name. Even when exploring miseries, her sweet but not sappy voice really sustains her and gives her a kind of grace.
