Miqael Persson aka Hicks is the first Swedish country artist to land his first two singles in the New Music Weekly Top 10, (“Hayride,” “Mama’s Kitchen”) and the first to reach the Music Row Top 80.  Hicks is also an award-winning songwriter from the south of Sweden, with multiple Gold and Platinum records to his credit. His rock-edged songs have been recorded by artists like Jimi Jamison (Survivor), Giant (Dann Huff), Bobby Kimball (Toto), Little River Band, and many other Grammy- winning artists.  In addition to his songwriting credits, Hicks is an Independent Country Music Association award winner, and the British Country Music Association’s 2013 European Country Act of the Year.  He has been nominated for the New Music Awards, Indie Music Channel Awards, International Music and Entertainment Association awards, and the Nashville Universe Awards. His latest, “I Belong To You” was co-written by Hicks with Erik Martensson, and hit songwriter, Jorgen Elofsson, writer of two smash hits for Kelly Clarkson (“A Moment Like This,” “Stronger.”)  With its anthemic, soaring vocal hook, Mumford and Sons-like rhythm section, and enough fiddles to inspire a river-side hoe-down, “I Belong To You” is a breath of much-needed fresh air for summer playlists. www.hickscountry.com
