Rick has a busy year planned for 2017. He's currently in the studio recording his second album--find him on Facebook for updates. 

About Rick

Rick Hornyak had it all: a house, a car, friends, family, a union job. But he wasn't happy, something was missing, lost. He knew it couldn't be found in Clarks Mills, PA. And it wasn't long after that, that he woke up, went to work, and didn't work. He quit. So long, farewell, ADIOS.

He had the biggestRick Hornyak tall headshot yard sale in the history of Clarks Mills - house included. Everything must go. Most especially Rick. He left town with a couple of guitars, a bunch of scribbled songs, and a dog named Buddy. He figured Buddy deserved to come along, considering that Buddy was the only one who hadn't told him he was crazy.

White lines and road signs, America zipping past his window. Road signs that kept announcing Austin, Texas, Home of Guitar Heroes. The place where all the songs that he had rushing through his mind would emerge free and wild. The people, the scenes. The clubs.

It's an amazing feeling to come home to a place you've never been before. But then, this is an amazing guy. And the best way to get to know him is through his songs. So check out his schedule. Check out his show. Stop by afterwards and say hello. You might have a yard sale of your own one day.

Where You Can Hear Rick Perform
