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. Having made a name for himself as a session guitarist, Hicks released his first solo single at the start of 2017 following a soul searching writing trip to a secluded Cornish Airbnb garage with no internet or phone signal. Soon after he was made 'BBC Introducing Artist of the Week’, receiving extensive radio play across the U.K and also a CLASH ’Track of the Day’ feature. Since then the songwriter has built up a sizeable online following (+1 Million Streams) helped on by extensive support from BBC Introducing and touring of the UK and Germany, including slots at the Big Feastival, over 30 Sofar Sounds shows and a support of BRITS critics choice winner Sam Fender in Oxford.
New single ‘Swim’ was recorded at Studio 91 in Joe’s home town of Newbury with producer Sam Winfield (Amber Run , Fickle Friends).
