A band of accomplished and powerful women, Hussy Hicks have made a name for themselves locally and on the international stage the old fashioned way – by playing their music and connecting with audiences one passionate performance at a time.
Julz Parker is widely recognized amongst her peers as one of Australia’s finest guitar players, with a tone and approach that sits stylistically between Jimmy Page, Peter Green, Django Reinhardt and Tom Morello. Leesa Gentz’s powerhouse stage presence, soaring vocals and massive smile will steal your heart, have you hanging on every note and leave a tingle dancing down your spine.
Almost 10 years after their debut album Life Plays Out – Hussy Hicks are currently on the road introducing fans old and new to their fifth full length offering, ‘On the Boundaries’. This album experiments with their sound and production to create something familiar yet fresh and was awarded Album of the Year at the 2018 Gold Coast Music Awards.
The Hussies run the gamut of musical genres incorporating blues, folk and riffy rock with gypsy, surf, alt country and soul, all cheekily woven together with beautiful vocal harmonies.
