Lucky Joe’s Wine is ready to go on stage
LUCKY Joe's Wine (and Other Tales From Dog River) is the name of the upcoming release by the Hussy Hicks.
When you think of the USA's Deep South, you think of bluegrass and country, rhythm and blues, but when you think of the Gold Coast it's all about the surf. The Hussy Hicks have taken the best of both and brought them to life with their new album.
Hussy Hicks have a strong connection to Alabama, drawn there regularly in the past ten years to perform, record and revitalise between tours of Europe, USA and Australia.
The Bluesfest Busking Competition Winners of 2010 had spent a few weeks at the magical Muscle Shoals Sound Studios recording Raise the Dead by Kristy Lee and were keen to get back to Alabama to cut some Hussy Hicks tracks.
Hall of Fame legend Rick Hirsch (Wet Willy, Cher, Greg Allman, Joan Armatrading) played host to the Hussy Hicks in his Alabama studio, where they gathered a few musician friends to collaborate on a seven-track mini album.
The duo will be playing at Bluesfest 2016 this Easter.
The Hussy Hick's new album will be out on Saturday, February 13.
