Hunter and the Wick'd
Hunter and the Wick’d is a Southern California based Americana duo. Its members consist of Virginia native, Miri Hunter, and California native, Thom Merrick. After playing together for several years, they released their first self-titled debut recording.
Hunter and the Wick'd explore country/desert melodies and bring them into a contemporary folk style that explores a wealth of music. Over their journey, the band has recognized several fan favorites on their debut CD collection including the three singles “Tumbleweed Connection, “Dance All Night in California,” and “I Don’t Wanna Talk Right Now.
"This music is all about giving yourself up to the wisdom and creativity that the desert imparts to you…at whatever emotional and spiritual cost. Thom and I come from varying musical traditions. He grew up during the punk music era and I grew up trained as a classical pianist. Within the realm of music, we unite as a team to create a montage that is representative of Americana music influenced by desert dreams,” - Miri from Hunter and the Wick'd.
