Tim Hicks

Find out what Tim Hicks’ favorite song to play is and where he goes to eat in Ottawa!

To kick things off for the #GetLoud tour, @TimHicks did a hilarious Twitter Q&A. Here’s the run down in case you missed it:


Q: What song are you most excited to play?

Tim: I’m most excited to play “If the Beat’s Alright”!!!!


Q: What is the thing that you love the most about being on the road playing your wonderful music? What advice can you give to a musician/songwriter who is just starting out?

Tim: My favorite thing is playing live! I love it! My advice would be to get out in front of people as often as you can!! Take every gig!!


Q: What’s the most amount of shows that you’ve done in the least amount of time?

Tim: Back in my bar days I played 14 shows in 12 days! My voice was sore to say the least haha!


Q: What was your favorite toy as a kid that you still have? Or wish you did?

Tim: I have a ukulele from when I was 3! I guess you could say it was my first guitar.


Q: Are you doing any covers on tour??

Tim: No covers on this run!


Q: What’s the hardest part of being on tour?

Tim: For me, it’s being away from my family, not being able to help with the day to day work of raising the kids and running a household.


Q: Do all 3 of you travel in the same tour bus? Or does @Tebey and @MadelineMerlo travel separately?

Tim: Good question! We have separate busses because our bands and crew travel with us. 12 bunks on each bus!!


Q: Will your families be joining you on part of the Tour? Has to be tough on you guys…

Tim: My family will be at the st Catharines Show. @AmandaHicksRN will be at the Guelph show, but it’s tough with the kids in school and Amanda working full time.


Q: Is there anything in particular that has been more difficult or easier about prepping for this upcoming tour compared to past ones?

Tim: Good question! Working out the set was a little more difficult this time, trying to figure out which tunes we play and don’t play! Tough calls had to be made haha!


Q: Okay better question how many bottles of @TitosVodka will be consumed during this tour?

Tebey: TOO MANY! My friends at @TitosVodka are stocking my bus before the tour. Of course Il’ll share with @TimHicks and @MadelineMerlowinky face

Tim: Haha awesome! I guess vodka is kinda like Tequila’s Cousin, I’m down!


Q: What’s the weirdest compliment you’ve gotten from a fan?

Tim: Once a fan asked me to sign their Gator… that was a little strange haha!


Q: Any chance you might ever come back to your StompinGround at @barcrazyhorse some day?

Tim: We usually stop by there for dinner whenever we are in town!


Q: How many songs will you and @Tebey write on this tour?
