As cheesy as it might sound, answering an ad on Craig’s List has changed the lives of Jessika Hickman and the members of Sacred, a self-described “alternative metal” band that is building a following regionally. And now, the band is enjoying the release of its first album “Ashes to Ascension.”
Hickman, who is active duty military at Hurlburt Field, plays bass for the band and lives in Navarre with her husband, John, who is also active duty at Hurlburt and is the band’s drummer. Wayne Pinkerton, who retired from the military earlier this year, is one of the band’s guitarists along with Hanna Cotton. Cotton’s husband, Adam, is the group’s singer.
