Sicard Hollow's Parrish Gabriel & Matt Rennick - Twice As Nice

We are so excited this week to have Parrish Gabriel and Matthew Rennick of Sicard Hollow joining us on No SImple Road!


Nashville’s psychedelic punk-grass rockers, Sicard Hollow, grew up sick of any existing institution telling them who and what to be. Now, as they navigate adulthood, they’re equally tired of the music institutions telling them what their music should sound like—so they dunked it in patchouli and a skate-and-destroy ethos that brings an enduring sound into the modern age.


Before the band met in 2018, none of the members ever considered playing bluegrass. Matt Rennick (violin) was working on electronic music, Will Herrin (mandolin/vocals) was playing guitar in rock bands, and Alex King (guitar/vocals) was barely playing music at all. After a few jam sessions, the bluegrass just kind of happened. Since adding Parrish Gabriel (bass) in the Fall of 2019, the band has been on a journey of self discovery within the genre while challenging themselves to make it their own.


We talk with Matt and Parrish about coping with the realities of being on the road, the importance of having a network of friends and family that you can rely on when not touring, how it feels to actually be breaking genre molds with your music, Matt's side project 'Magec' and his personal struggles with mental health and what he's doing to keep his head on straight, Parrish's love of driving, and a whole lot more!
