Pete Hicks is an established singer/songwriter with an international reputation. He is probably best remembered as the original vocalist with ex-Genesis guitarist, Steve Hackett’s first touring and recording band and also as a guest artist on a number of significant Progressive Rock albums.
When he’s not working in the studio or ‘guesting’, he’s making solo appearances at various festivals and venues playing original Americana-style songs, (some of which have been described as ‘Thrash Folk’), depicting those identifiable situations and recognisable characters that we’ve all encountered.
His songs are sometimes ‘quirky’ and often ‘melancholic’, but always vividly portrayed through entertaining lyrics and music. His current album Cadbury-Hicks, (recorded with old friend Dik Cadbury), was selected as Album of the Week on Country Music FM and had tracks played on Radio Kent.
