Tom Hickox to support Richard Hawley at London’s Troxy 23rd of Feb

Tom Hickox has been chosen to support the formidable Richard Hawley at Troxy on 23rd February.

Tom has previously recorded with Hawley, and last year saw his songs appear on the high profile Dr Martens campaign.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.” After studying English at Manchester University Tom went on to do an M.A in sound recording and self-released a DIY album, Fear In A Handful of Dust, mixing strings and electronica that won him many admirers. He has now picked up a publishing deal with Warner Chappell.

Tom has now completed his debut album ‘War, Peace And Diplomacy’. Watch the effortelessly mournful ‘The Angel of the North’ below.
