English-born; Aussie-raised singer-songwriter Daisy Hicks brings you her first single “French Café” from her brand new album which will be with us in 2017. Being the daughter of legendary jazz drummer Tony Hicks (Back Door; legendary Jazz Trio who were formed in the 1970’s) and closely related to international recording artist Chris Rea; Daisy has a pedigree that is undeniable. After being classically trained and beginning her career in jazz; Daisy decided to deviate from her roots and explore her musical horizons. By the age of 19 Hicks had been signed by Concept Music; where she released her debut album ‘Mistress’. The album broke in the UK; Japan and European markets with radio play on the likes of KISS; Radio 1 and Capitol Radio and great support from some key tastemakers that built a good foundation that had Daisy touring in Australia; Singapore and the Far East. Daisy’s crystal-clear vocals that soar above the music have been played almost everywhere you can think of; including thousands of shops; bars and airlines around the globe and her track “So Much More Than Love” featured on the hit US TV series ‘Pretty Little Liars’.She didn’t stop there and collaborated internationally; writing with Aron Friedman (Backstreet Boys;Take That); Stefan Örn (co-wrote 2011 Eurovision winner; Anders Bagge; Westlife); Jeff Franzel (Josh Groban; Taylor Dayne); Malcolm Maddock (James Brown; Lionel Ritchie) and worked with producers Matt Fell (multi-CMAA award winner; Sara Storer; Shane Nicholson); Tim Laws (Daryl Hall; Gabrielle; Lighthouse Family) and Pete Craigie (Billy Ocean; Seth Lakeman) to name a few. A majority of Daisy’s new album was recorded on Elton John’s old piano from his house in Beverly Hills that now resides in Curtis Schwartz’ Berry House Studios (Stacey Kent). Daisy has a cool; sweet jazzy vocal style that is effortless but at the same time has the power that delivers her songs with a depth that makes them such beautiful and addictive listening. Having lost her dad 10 years ago to lung cancer Daisy found the recording process particularly emotional as her father had recorded at Berry House Studios on many occasions. “French Café” – written by Daisy comes with 3 mixes – the first by Met Life who are actually (Full Intention’s Jon Pearn and Michael Gray); the St. Tropez mix (Aron Friedman) and the Original version (Curtis Schwartz) all deliver her stunning vocals and illustrate Daisy’s song writing prowess. She has more singles to follow and a host of fantastic videos to watch on her Facebook page please check her out…
