Mike Hicks

Watching the energetic, spontaneous, and passionate musicianship of Mike Hicks on stage, one would find it hard to believe that this fiery keyboardist is reserved, introverted, and even shy off stage. A native of Warner Robins, Georgia and a current resident of Nashville, Tennessee, Mike brings a musical background rich in the culture of gospel music and the rhythmic stylings of soul and funk. Having met Keb Mo at a session for “Memphis Beat”, he began working with him on a daily basis and soon became the newest addition to Keb’s band. Quietly becoming a force in Nashville’s urban music scene, he produces and writes for various artists and he is the frontman and songwriter for Nashville’s newest force of funk, Funktional Punctuation (aka The Funk Puncs).
