One of Australia’s best live blues ‘n’ roots bands, Hussy Hicks are a tour de force featuring powerhouse vocalist, Leesa Gentz and award-winning guitarist, Julz Parker. Prolific and accomplished musicians, Hussy Hicks have honed their sonic dexterity over the past 14 years with multiple studio albums, a swag of industry awards and thousands of live shows under their belt
Straddling the line between Folk, Blues, Country, and Roots, HussyHicks have earned themselves a mighty reputation, growing, from festival openers to festival favourites, seeing the group now appear at the biggest blues and roots festivals in Australia, The USA and across Europe while selling out their own tours across the three continents.
Hussy Hicks are not without adversary, Leesa and Julz, from the group had their studio and home destroyed in the devastating 2022 Northern Rivers Floods, which was off the back off two years of industry shut down from COVID. Onwards and upwards the group strives forward, with their notorious mischievous streak whilst pushing against the odds as they carve greatness from adversary, into 2023 and beyond as they prepare to release new material and head to a stage near you.
