Tim Hicks has a voice that was made for country music. He has been playing guitar and singing professionally for 17+ years, and it shows. His seasoned tenor can be heard 4 to 5 nights a week, singing to audiences all over Ontario- every week, and he shows no sign of stopping anytime soon. It's what he was meant to do. Look for an independent release from Tim very soon.
After joining his first band at age 7, Tim hasn't looked back. He has performed with many bands at every level from bar-room cover bands, to tribute acts, to signed artists as a sideman, and has played all kinds of gigs from theatres to clubs, to coffee houses, and street corners.
