Daisy Hicks – Stay
Daisy Hicks – Stay
English-born and Australian-raised singer-songwriter Daisy Hicks brings you her 4th EP “When I’m Gone” from her upcoming new album set for release early in 2019.
Following on from her previous EPs “French Café”, “Upside” and “I Chose You”, the new EP builds on Daisy’s songwriting and vocal abilities as a truly contemporary soul and jazz artist with wide commercial radio appeal. Being the daughter of legendary jazz drummer Tony Hicks (Back Door) and closely related to international recording artist Chris Rea, Daisy’s music pedigree is truly undeniable.
“When I’m Gone” comes with a UK soul remix by Met Life (Michael Gray/Jon Pearn) and a stripped-down acoustic version. There is also a B-side “Stay” – a classic original jazz track written by Daisy and Malcom Maddock.
Daisy’s previous EP’s have all hit the charts – “I Chose You” hit #8 in the UK Soul Charts, currently at #10 on the Official European Independent Music Chart, “French Café” peaked at #2 on the Official European Independent Charts and “Upside” broke the Top 10 on the Official European Independent Music Chart and the Euro Indie Music Chart.
All 3 singles continue to have unwavering radio support in the UK, across Europe and in the US from Jazz FM, various BBC Regional Stations, Jamm FM, MiSoul, Delite, Solar, Starpoint and many more. In the last 18 months, Daisy’s tracks have had over 27,500 radio plays around the world and her videos on Facebook have received over 14M views.
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 Daisy 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 Capital Radio and great support from some key tastemakers. This foundation led to Daisy touring in Australia, Singapore and the Far East.
Daisy has worked with amazing people 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). She has worked with producers Matt Fell (multi-CMAA award winner, Sara Storer, Shane Nicholson), Curtis Schwartz and Gil Cang. And her music has had remixes by Tim Laws (Daryl Hall, Gabrielle), Pete Craigie (Billy Ocean, Seth Lakeman), Michael Gray and Jon Pearn (Met Life/The Weekend), The BodyBangers, Steve Moore, 7th Heaven, Almighty, Ruff Diamond, Sir Piers and Brian Power.
Daisy’s distinctive crystal-clear vocals always soar above the music and her music is played in thousands of shops, shopping malls, bars and airlines. Her track “So Much More Than Love” featured on the hit US TV series ‘Pretty Little Liars’.
Daisy’s cool, honey-sweet vocal style sounds effortless but she has the power to deliver her songs with a depth that makes both timelessly beautiful and addictive to listen to.
“When I’m Gone” will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon and all major digital platforms.
