Son of highly acclaimed British orchestra conductor Richard Hickox and a talented singer/ songwriter himself, Tom Hickox releases his stunning new track 'Angel Of The North' complete with hard-hitting visual metaphors in the shape of its video counterpart. It has been taken from his upcoming debut album 'War, Peace And Diplomacy' which is set for release in 2013.
The visual effect of the video is, albeit simple, beautiful yet sensationally dark. It uses footage of birds, beaches and the sea as well as a pretty actress to convey this romantic but slightly eerie song which is heavily emphasised by Hickox's raw, deep vocals which have a touch of the classical about them. Adding to the intensity of this fantastically written song is the quiet but rhythmic marching beat in the background alongside violin solos and other classical style instrumentals.
Tom has been recognised as original and innovative by several publications with comparisons being made to some of the biggest voices of acoustic music including Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Randy Newman. From someone who initially had no interest in music having been brought up around it and associating the business with his own feelings of being unstable in the inconsistent lives of his parents, Tom has changed into someone who pours out his emotions and literary interests into songwriting and is set for some huge successes for it.
