Bill Hickman is an intense, lyrical singer/songwriter from Wellington, New Zealand. A long serving stalwart of New Zealand stages, Bill has played in bands (The Shot Band, Billy Bones, Parcel of Rogues and King Lazy) and as a soloist all over the country and further abroad.

A self described ‘folkie with a chip on his shoulder’ Bill’s songs run the gamut from murder and outlaws to absent friends, love and gratitude. With a strong, gravel dragged voice and country inflected acoustic guitar; fans of Warren Zevon, Johnny Cash and Townes van Zandt will find touchstones in his songwriting and selected covers.

But don’t be fooled into thinking this is a set of gentle melancholy, Bill's primary approach is ‘gutsy’. He has done his time howling above the clamour and is always capable of stepping it up a notch when the occasion or story requires.

2018 has seen Bill writing and recording towards a new record ‘Crossbones’ and a recent successful Kickstarter campaign has the wheels turning for a release in early 2019. Bill’s live performances range from pin drop intimacy to the ring of feedback and shots fired. Bill Hickman, a ghost of gravel and smoke.
