Maryann Price

At long last the voice behind Dan Hicks And His Hot Licks, The Kinks and Asleep At The Wheel is taking center stage. Jazz vocalist Maryann Price leads her own jazz trio and is one half of the eclectic duo Ethylín Methyl, along with Asleep At The Wheel alumnus Chris O'Connell. After singing commercial jingles in her native Baltimore and jazz in Las Vegas showrooms Price moved to San Francisco in 1969. She was immediately hired by the most original band in town, Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks, becoming one of the most popular groups on the west coast. Upon hearing of the Hot Lick's breakup in 1973, the Kinks' Ray Davies asked Maryann to move to England and join the legendary British rockers. Davies penned several songs for Maryann and she stayed with the Kinks for a year, touring extensively and recording "Preservation Act 2". Returning to America, Maryann formed The Girtones with former Hot Licks guitarist John Girton and in 1980 Price was contacted by longtime fan Ray Benson, leader of the legendary band "Asleep At The Wheel" and soon she was logging countless road miles. She stayed with the "Wheel" for two years and recorded "Framed" with them before embarking on her solo career. In 1991 Maryann organized the first reunion in 17 years of the original Hot Licks. The show packed Austin's Paramount Theater and culminated in an appearance on "Austin City Limits" which generated unprecedented viewer response. Maryannís voice can be heard on numerous commercial jingles and along with Chris O'Connell she appeared on the Southwest Airlines television commercials. Maryann now resides in Austin, Texas where she performs regularly and her recordings are much sought after. Price's long awaited first solo album entitled "Etched In Swing" received critical acclaim as did her live, autographed CD "Hot 'n' Cole". Jazzland, released in 1998 features many of Maryann's favorite musicians and songwriters. "Milagros" is Texas Roots Music at its best, featuring Maryann and late husband Tary Owens. "Lone Star State O' Grace" was released in 2003 and in 2004 Maryann teamed up with fellow "Lickette" Naomi Ruth Eisenberg for a live album at the bay area club Freight & Salvage, but whether it's boogie, ballad, or jazz, the unifying element is the one-of-a-kind voice of Maryann Price.
