Ryan Hicks’ “Kaleidoscope” Calls for Unity

Ryan Hicks is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer from Regina, Saskatchewan. He cites Ron Sexsmith, Father John Misty, and David Bowie as influences for his melodic, cinematic, alt-pop music; as if Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson, and Fleet Foxes made music for David Lynch.

In anticipation of his fourth studio album, Experience, dropping on March 24th, Hicks shares a message of hope: “My dream is that like the kaleidoscope, all people can come together and see how beautiful the world is with all of our differences together.

His lush new single “Kaleidoscope” captures the spirit of peace and love in the ‘60s/‘70s, while sounding fresh and contemporary with its distinctive melody. The drum pattern of the verses sets up the satisfying and powerful chorus.

The psychedelic video evokes wonder and beauty, an affectionate nod to flower power.
