Newbury Singer-Songwriter Joe Hicks blends blues, funk, folk and pop influences, combining intricate guitar composition with classic pop song-craft. Having spent his earlier years in numerous different projects following a childhood of classical training, Joe released his first solo single 'Best Clothes' at the start of 2017. Soon after, the 28 year old was made 'BBC Introducing Artist of the Week' on the regional 'Georgey Tonight' radio program, receiving extensive airplay across the U.K. Third single 'Talk to Me' dramatically increased Hicks' audience, being playlisted heavily on Spotify and Soundcloud collections around the globe. Included in Sofar Sounds ‘Best of 2017’ Spotify playlist following acclaimed Sofar performances and fresh off the back of extensive BBC Introducing support for his new 'Blinding Light' Acoustic EP, Joe spent the bulk of 2018 gigging across the UK and will release new music at the start of 2019. 

"the songwriter has quickly developed a rabid following, with his keening melodies searing their way into your subconscious."
