Born near Pittsburg, Pennsylvania took the young Rick Hornyak in that land of cornfields and old brownfield not really much to do would be. So he decided to opt for the adventure and his luck as a musician to go test in Austin, Texas, the heart of the country and Americana music.

In this new environment, he did a lot of inspiration for the songs he composed and which he is now on his debut album "Marigold" has collected for the purpose of sharing them with the widest possible audience. For the recording of this album, he also got the help of some established names from the country scene of Austin as Cindy Cashdollar, Lloyd Maines and members 'Asleep At The Wheel' and of the advisory group around Robert Earl Keen.

His warm voice is the first thing you notice when listening to the eleven songs on this album. Country rock song "So Many Times Before" which is started immediately illustrates what direction Rick Hornyak with his musical work will go. Fluent in catchy songs with a lot of typical country sounds from pedal or lap steel guitar and acoustic guitars.

More from this genre of music we get offered in songs like "See This Through", "Right In Front Of Me" and "Cigarettes" (see video) or with saturated blues tones "Homesick Blues". In the laid back presented ballad "Foolish Love" Rick Hornyak brings a real tearjerker on a tile to be danced and which singer Jaymie Graves makes for beautiful backing vocals.

That is the end of this debut album a little thin redone in the country ballad "Moving On (Without You)". The album "Marigold" for Rick Hornyak more than a successful entrance into the great world of the Texas country music. Now confirm a successor.
