Hussy Hicks will return to light up #AgnesBluesFest in 2023 after their electrifying Marquee Stage
performances in 2020.
Critically acclaimed Australian act Hussy Hicks are a tour de force, featuring Leesa Gentz’ powerhouse soul vocals and Julz Parker’s revered guitar skills.
Straddling the line between Folk, Blues, Country, and Roots, Hussy Hicks have earned themselves a mighty reputation, growing from Festival openers to Festival favourites, with the group now appearing at the biggest blues and roots festivals in Australia, The USA and across Europe while selling out their own tours across all three continents.
The band, led by the duo of Leesa Gentz (vocals) and Julz Parker (guitar) have spent the last fourteen years touring and forging their place as one the most treasured and celebrated working musical duos, whilst also being equally comfortable performing as a trio or in full band format, having taken home the Gold Coast Artist of the Year and Album of the Year honours.
The band have released seven studio albums and played 1000’s of gigs, festivals, carving out a global reputation for their emotive lyricism, energetic live shows and fiery, frenetic instrumentation.
Hussy Hicks are not without adversity and it’s been a tough year for Leesa and Julz from the group, who had their studio and home destroyed in the devastating 2022 Northern Rivers Floods, coming off the back of two years of industry shut-down from COVID.
Onwards and upwards, Hussy Hicks continue to strive forward as a band with their notorious mischievous streak. They keep pushing against the odds as they carve greatness from adversity into 2023 and beyond, preparing to release new material, apps and even try their hands at video game.
According to Sarah Howells of Double J “Some artists need to be seen to be believed, and Hussy Hicks fit that category.”
