FAME PRESENTS: TOM HICKOX – “I’M AM UNTRAINED MUSICIAN BUT…”
Download for free, the beautiful and moving track ‘The Angel Of The North’ by Tom Hickox, taken from his upcoming debut album ‘War, Peace And Diplomacy’.
Tom Hickox is a serious talent for serious times. Tom’s late father Richard Hickox CBE was one of Britain’s most renowned conductors, a Grammy award winner with over 280 recordings to his credit.
Tom’s mother was an orchestral timpanist. Tom, however never had formal lessons. “I knew as a kid I couldn’t possibly compete with my dad, and I didn’t want to. My parents let me doodle on instruments around the house. Really, I am untrained musician but I have a lot in my guts and in my ears that I picked up by osmosis.”
During his teenage years Tom sought solace in literature getting into Beckett, Pinter and Orton. As his passion for literature became more prevalent he joined a school rock band and began writing his own music.
“I wrote my first song using a poem in the back of the Big Issue and I got a lot of joy out of that.”
Tom’s debut album ‘War, Peace And Diplomacy’, is coming soon.
Tom Hickox is One To Watch this year and next!
