Music At The Unicorn are very pleased to be able to bring Joe Hicks to The Unicorn Theatre. He will be performing in his trio format which will bring keyboards, a second guitar and backing vocals to the show.

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 (+1.5 million Spotify Streams) helped on by extensive support from BBC Introducing and touring of the UK and Europe, including appearances at the Big Feastival, Are You Listening? Festival, over 30 Sofar Sounds shows and a slot supporting BRITS critics choice winner Sam Fender.

Joe’s self-titled album (06.03.20) was recorded at Studio 91 in his home town of Newbury with producer Sam Winfield (Amber Run, Fickle Friends).

“This guy is absolutely smashing it, we can’t wait to see what’s next for him!” – Linda Serck, BBC Introducing Berkshire
