Aaron “The Wolf” Hice began his bass career around the turn of the millennium while attending Cal State Fullerton. Within six months, Aaron was performing professionally with his first Reggae band, Operation Roots and Culture (aka O.R.C) and was soon thereafter recruited to join Higher Lion, a hot LA-based Reggae band. With Higher Lion, Aaron performed up and down the coast of California with some occasional performances in Arizona.
Affectionately known as “Wolf” to his friends and other musicians, Aaron took advantage of every opportunity to perform with other bands and musicians on the California Reggae scene and shared the stage with such Reggae artists such as Rebel Rockers’ “Princess” Deborah Lee Sullivan, Chaka Demus and Pliers, Eek-a-Mouse, Shinehead and Dakeye. In 2010, Aaron was recruited to join a Rock and Roll cover band and got some great experience performing wide variety of Rock covers while also continuing to perform with Higher Lion.
“After viewing many hours of live concert footage of Eric Clapton, Ray and I heard (and had) numerous ideas and resolved to incorporate them into our show. We charted out new enhanced backup vocals, keyboard parts and especially Nathan East’s R&B flavored updates of the original rock bass treatments which proved considerably more difficult to execute. We were very fortunate to connect with Aaron who was able to apply his Reggae skills in an R&B context and groove these challenging new arrangements.” — Randell Young
