Herrick is the patchwork of two lives long lived together.
Sewn up in organic composition and exquisite harmonies, theirs is a
fabric held together with steel thread.
Nearly every single successful band who has ever been will tell you that the relationship between band members is very much like a marriage. When you spend hours, days, months and eventually years together, sit side by side through mile after mile as you travel the country, and watch as your creations are born and breathe the breath of life, then you pretty much have a true understanding of marriage. For Kerry and Donna Herrick, that bond was sewn with a double threaded needle being that they are, in fact, married, both literally and musically.
Their partnership started all the way back in junior high school, a couple of kids growing up together in Spokane, Washington. Even then their love for each other was painfully obvious, both knowing they fit together perfectly in the great puzzle of adolescence. Kerry grew up with his 5 brothers and sisters surrounded by southern gospel music. His sister and cousin were professional musicians that comprised The Herrick Family Gospel Singers, so it was pretty much inevitable that music would carve a path under his feet. Donna was born a truly gifted singer, but her mother was the only person on the planet who knew it. Painfully shy, she wouldn’t dare open her mouth to anyone else…that is until Kerry came along. Finally joining in and lending her voice as she watched him and his brother sing in their ritual jam sessions, Kerry could not believe his ears.
At that moment the die was cast and their musical chemistry set in motion. Herrick is the patchwork of two lives long lived together.
Sewn up in organic composition and exquisite harmonies, theirs is a fabric held together with steel thread.
Their migration to Nashville started with a fluke kind of situation. They released some songs online and one of those songs “If You Don’t Have Love” hit the Top 20 on the Christian Country Music Association Chart. After traveling to Nashville to perform at the CCMA Awards show, and taking sage advice from an industry mentor, they then made a permanent residence in Music City. You could fill a book with the stories of all that has happened since then. With pen in hand they very nearly signed a major label deal early on, but due to merging of companies, that fell through. Instead of waiting for new interests to develop, they went full blown DYI releasing music independently. Their lack of major label support did not hinder the impact their music was having. Their 2012 debut album “New Dance” co-produced by Donna and Kerry, Michael Bonagura and Buddy Cannon delivered two singles that hit the Music Row Chart and a music video that hit the Top 20 on The Country Network’s Countdown. Their second album “Cottonfields” followed in 2016. High praise from some of the most coveted music critics hovered around them with regularity over the years including music historian Robert K. Oermann of Music Row Magazine and award-winning journalist Chuck Dauphin of Billboard Magazine, both citing Herrick as “the real deal.” Chuck Dauphin continued by saying “Herrick may very well contain the next great female voice of this generation in Donna Herrick.” The band boasts an impressive list of music awards including two IAMA International Acoustic Awards, “Folk/Bluegrass/Americana “Group of the Year ,“ and most recently, “Entertainer of the Year” and “Female Vocalist of the Year” at the JMA Awards, and a Bronze Telly Award.
The lack of restrictions on their creative process has endeared them to music fans that make up a large base across the country. With so much noise in the world coming from every direction, the rise of Herrick’s music above the din is most definitely attributed to their rich melodic persuasion and signature harmonies. Their brand new album “Sunderland Road” is a masterful representation of that. The album is co-produced by Herrick and Multiple Platinum Award winning Engineer/Hall of Fame Inductee engineer Ron "Snake" Reynolds who has worked on 100 plus multi-platinum albums. His ability to capture all the little nuances in Donna’s extraordinary voice brings forth a monster country release worthy of the genre’s ancestors.
The much-anticipated new album that will no doubt stand as Herrick’s tour de force.
"What’s that sound? Oh yes, I remember. It’s called country music. And I don’t mean the overly polished kind that Music Row usually serves us. I mean the Real Deal. Herrick is back to warm my hillbilly heart with ringing reminders of what old-school country can mean.
-Robert K Oermann, Music Row Magazine
"Donna has the uncanny ability to breathe emotion into a song and make the listener feel something. It's that moment when the lyrics of a song become more than just words.
Every member of this band play an important role in their sound. The instrumentation and arrangement of the songs is superb."
- No Depression Magazine
"This little girl can really sing!"- George Jones
"When Herrick take the stage you see them and the spell is complete.
You see them where they truly belong - where they are meant to be...
Donna's pioneering vocal, a kind of audible kiss, a blurted confession backed by a fierce mandolin.
Kerry's legendary bass beats combined with his tight harmony blend.
All of this through a dizzying, hour-long crescendo until the final band
"With intricate harmonies and a distinctive legendary
sound that combines the best of folk, rock, blues and
country, Herrick shatters the current country music mold and
creates a new path for it to follow."
"The songs written by Herrick run the gamut of emotions,alternating at times
between seething rage and a bruised
vulnerability. With Donna's powerful vocals, pummeling mandolin riffs, and swaggering attitude, It sounds a bit
like what might have happened had Led Zeppelin been fronted
by "a chick."
"The band has diverse influences like Ann Wilson (Heart), Ryan Adams, Dwight Yoakum, Merle Haggard, The Eagles, Emmylou Harris, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Waylon Jennings, The
Band, Evanescence and more... it's no wonder their music
combines many elements from different musical styles into a
new and unique blend. Fans label the band "A Breath of Fresh Air". Different is
very intriguing, and Herrick has been winning fans and music
insiders over with every show they play. Their innate instinct for creating high quality music has helped Herrick stand out from the crowd as they tour to standing room only
crowds across the country."
Herrick has a musical and vocal sound with its own identity. A rarity these days.
"If you haven’t worked with HERRICK yet, now is the time. Terrific group and awesome to work with.
I highly recommend them for your venue."

"Donna sings with THAT voice again, taking you away to the days of Carey, Houston, Dion and Yearwood."
- James Daykin/Lyric Magazine
"Sunderland Road leads to realms of wistful reflection. It paves the way for a moving set of songs, which, in itself, leads to a most satisfying sojourn overall."
- American Songwriter Magazine
"This little girl can really sing!"
- George Jones
"Sometimes - given the high volume of CD's that pass across my desk, it's tough to get anything on the first listen. You typically have to go back, and listen to a disc a few times before you realize whether you 'get' the act or not. I only needed one listen to tell you that Herrick is the real deal, and may very well contain the next great female voice of this generation in Donna Herrick."
- Billboard Magazine
"The dynamite new partnership on the Americana scene today, Kerry and Donna Herrick, follow up their critically acclaimed debut New Dance with this ten song set. It isn’t entirely fair or accurate to pigeonhole what it is that Herrick does. The partners have outstanding collaborators with Jefferson Rogers playing a triple threat of guitar, lap steel, banjo and Jeff Bradshaw keeps everything a steady tempo, but they scarcely confine themselves to aesthetic purity. This is a trio that can flat out rock at crucial points and they aren’t afraid for you to know it. The final amazing part is how they can conjure such sonic power with comparatively weak instruments. Their sophomore album Cottonfield is relentless. It never stops trying to entertain and connect with you from the first song."
- Skope Magazine
"What’s that sound? Oh yes, I remember. It’s called country music. And I don’t mean the overly polished kind that Music Row usually serves us. I mean the Real Deal. Herrick is back to warm my hillbilly heart with ringing reminders of what old-school country can mean. My enthusiastic encouragement goes out to all of these folks for doing their jobs so well. Again. I’ve praised them all before in this column, and I am happy to do so once more.
Herrick/Do You Love Me. Writer: Kerry Herrick/Donna Herrick; Producer: Herrick & Michael Bonagura; Publisher: Herrick KDK Music, BMI; Breakaway Entertainment.
I have praised this foursome effusively in the past. Lead singer Donna Herrick penetrates this percolating track with passion, while her own mandolin sets the throbbing pace of the production. This has drive, dynamism and drama. Play it."
-Robert K Oermann, Music Row Magazine
"Cottonfields establishes Herrick as one of the best Americana pop/rock bands today flying under mainstream radar.
There are a number of songs included on Cottonfields tailored for mass consumption from first note to last, but there’s more, thankfully. There’s honesty to this music coming off every song and the band’s lead singer delivers them with a passion few can match."
- Vents Magazine
"The ten song collection explores traditional American music, but builds off the band’s debut and extends their reach as well. The album production reflects that vocalist and mandolin player Donna Herrick is the album’s indisputable sonic heart, but Herrick isn’t a glorified solo act. The remaining three members are obviously top notch talents in their own right and give Herrick the best possible vehicle for reaching global acclaim."
- Band Blurb
"The quality in the delivery of lead vocalist Donna, of Herrick, the lady knows how to keep an eye on her date and the Roots sound of the band's drive ‘New Dance’ with soul, country and rock moves. “Heaven Don’t Let Me Down” has rafter lifting vocals tempered with some teasing moans left over from Saturday night. That middle ground between polish and grit is a well- traveled path for Herrick. Grooves blow like the wind the stirs the spirits around on “Hangmen’s Hill” and move between sway and stomp in “Hey Savanna”, as the track trades lead vocals growls with guitar bites. Herrick rock their country and leave a lot of the natural country feel of blue-eyed soul and soulful blues in place and noticeable."
- Alternative Root Magazine
"The group’s intricate harmonies are the icing on the cake, if you will, of a sound that merges “the best of folk, rock, blues and country.” The result thereof is a musical style that breaks from the country mold to forge a direction all the lineup’s own."
- Country Music Examiner
"Herrick continues to grip music fans and industry professionals alike with a dynamic live show combined with compelling songwriting and comprehensive instrumentation, posing a triple threat affair that has established the band with a stronghold on the touring circuit."
- Today’s Country Magazine
"I was excited when I learned that Herrick would release a new CD this April. After listening to the tracks from the new project, I realized that Donna's voice has gotten even better over the last few years. She could probably sing the phone book and make it interesting, but that's not the only thing that makes it unique. Donna has the uncanny ability to breathe emotion into a song and make the listener feel something. It's that moment when the lyrics of a song become more than just words. In addition to Donna, Herrick is made up of Donna's husband Kerry, Jeff Bradshaw and Jefferson Rogers. While most people that review Herrick's music (includingmyself) often rave about Donna's vocal abilities, every member of this band play an important role in the band's sound. The harmonies on "Cottonfields" are wonderful. In addition, the instrumentation and arrangement of the songs is superb. The music helps bring the words to life and it goes a long way help develop the tone of the entire CD."

"Herrick is simply one of the best live shows you will ever see. And Donna Herrick has one of the greatest voices in music today. But don't be fooled by their "country" designation- think Heart with a mandolin."
