Ryan Hicks – Am I Going To Die (Hot Windy Palms)

“At some part, verse, reminded of James Bond theme songs from the last century. Having that same epic momentum that will stay in your mind for a long time. Vocal is amazing, same goes to the music, guitars solos, whole production, amazing one. ”


Regina, Saskatchewan’s Ryan Hicks found the inspiration for his new single in an unlikely place, overhearing a conversation between a mother and daughter while on a songwriting trip to Palm Springs.

The daughter showed her mother a cut on her knee and asked, “Momma, am I going to die?”

Her mother’s comforting response was a feeling that Ryan chose to return to in “Am I Going To Die (Hot Windy Palms),” his wistful new single which blends folk and pop influences to capture love, caring, and a sense of wonder at the world and its unknowns.
