Critically acclaimed Australian act, Hussy Hicks are a tour de force featuring Leesa Gentz powerhouse soul vocals and Julz Parkers revered guitar skills. Prolific and accomplished musicians, Hussy Hicks have honed their sonic dexterity over the past 12 years with five studio albums, multiple industry awards and more than 1,000 live shows under their belts, from Australias biggest blues, roots and folk festivals to 15 plus international tours, which now sell out across Europe. Known for their emotive lyricism, energetic live shows and fiery, frenetic instrumentation, its no surprise Hussy Hicks have staying power. From Gold Coast Artist of the Year and Album of the Year wins to Queensland Music Award and Golden Guitar nominations, their critical accolades extend even further, with guitarist Parker being touted by Australian legend, Phil Emmanuel as Australias top female guitar player and voted fifth in Bluesfests Guitar Hero fan poll, among Santana and BB King. Signed to her first record label at just 16 years old, Leesa is excited to be moving into the next phase of Hussy Hicks, welcoming new drummer, Ali Foster, making the band an all-female force with long-time bassist, Tracy Bassy in the mix. Producing and engineering all of their new music themselves, Hussy Hicks are proving positive social change is happening right now with last single, Get Ready, foreseeing a future without sexism, racism, homophobia and xenophobia, but most importantly, without fear. Their new single, Take A Look Over is the breakup song to end all breakup songs, baring their heart and soul in their art. Almost 10 years after the release of their debut album Hussy Hicks are back with their fifth full length offering, On the Boundaries. A departure from their trademark live recordings, this album sees the Hussy Hicks experiment with their sound and production to create something familiar yet fresh. Its the Hussy Hicks embracing a creative approach and the results are nothing short of stunning.
