Premiere: Tom Hickox - The Lisbon Maru

Shed Sessions...

Ships loom large in the imagination of Tom Hickox.

A story-teller, he seems drawn to epic voyages, to pitting his characters against the extremity of nature and physical endurance.

Always ready to move forward, Tom Hickox applies a literary virtuosity to his material, with each song seeming to be like a parable.

Stopping past the Shed Sessions to record a few live clips, the songwriter was no rich form. Strolling through 'The Lisbon Maru' he really makes the central character come to life - an old drunken sailor in a harbour bar, it's a romantic, windswept tale.

Check it out now.
