More about the artists
The Greasy Slicks
They formed in 2012 through a mutual appreciation of traditional and contemporary blues rock and strive to create the songs that don’t sound like anyone else; the results reflect just how unique they are as musicians and songwriters. Evidence of this can be heard on the track ‘Street Queen’ – all seven minutes of it received radio airplay on Tom Robinson’s 6Music Introducing Mix-tape. Their passionate live shows have been described as the soundtrack for “a bourbon-soaked bar brawl” and are where they strive to ensure audiences are captivated by the Slicks energy, commitment and musicianship.
