Raised in the rural market town of Newbury, 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 he’s built up a sizeable online following (+2.5 million Spotify Streams) helped on by extensive support from BBC Introducing and touring the UK and Europe, including appearances at CarFest, The Big Feastival, Are You Listening? Festival, Pub in the Park, over thirty Sofar Sounds shows and slots supporting Sam Fender, James Walsh and Starsailor.

New single ‘Mirror Mirror’ (24.03.22) was recorded at Studio 91, Newbury with producer Sam Winfield (Amber Run, Only Sun, Robin Trower).
