Music 

"It's called Austin rock. [He] knows how to hold a crowd and move them at the same time."

                                                                                      - Billy Block, Western Beat

With his first record, Marigold, Rick Hornyak threads bittersweet lyrics through strong, warm melodies, inspired by American rock. The result: a true, classic American sound that resonates with all audiences. And while his sound has a soft, Bruce Springstein feel, he can get an entire room of people on their feet. 

Rick's music is inspired by The Avett Brothers, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Ray LaMontagne, James McMurtry, John Prine, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Neil Young, Johnny Cash, John Lennon, The Who, The Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac, Wilco, and so many of the new artists that are contributing to the resurgence of Americana music.
