Dylan Sticks Hicks is originally from right outside of Chicago, Illinois. He started studying drums in Jr. High School, and began private lessons with Don Skoog. He played in his school bands, as well as attending Jazz jam sessions all around the Chicago-land area. Then he attended The Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp, and would go on to tour twice with their International Jazz Band in two, one month tours. He then went on to join the Midwest Young Artists jazz program, an intensive jazz performance program masterminded by the great Chicago guitar player/composer, Frank Portolese. Another tour of Scotland took place with this group.
