Raised in the rural market town of Newbury; English Singer-Songwriter Joe Hicks blends pop, blues and folk influences, combining intricate guitar composition with classic pop song-craft.
Picking up the guitar at the age of 8, Joe has been able to build a highly individual musical identity, spending his earlier years as a guitar player in numerous varied stylistic projects following a childhood of classical training. Hicks released his first solo single at the start of 2017 and soon after was made 'BBC Introducing Artist of the Week’, receiving extensive radio play across the U.K and a CLASH feature. Since then the songwriter has built up a sizeable online following (500K Spotify streams) and 2018 saw him support BRITS critics choice winner Sam Fender in Oxford, play a slot on the BBC Introducing stage at the Big Feastival and over 15 Sofar Sounds shows. Joe released his new single ‘Hollow’ on the 16th May, 2019.
