Twenty-year-old guitar prodigy and singer Solomon Hicks - known by some fans in Harlem as “King Solomon,” “‘lil B.B.” or “East Montgomery” - has been playing guitar for 14 years.
After 2 years of songwriting and recording with his producer/manager, Jeff Levine (a Joe Cocker veteran musical director and keyboardist), his new album entitled “Carrying on the Torch of the Blues” was released June 2015 on the Organic Recordings™ label. It includes a blues rendition of a pop Beatles song.
Special guest Southside Johnny plays harmonica on the cover version of “Homework”, a roots classic made popular by Otis Rush and The J.Geils Band.
Jake Clemons, (current member and the nephew of the legendary Clarence Clemons from Bruce Springsteen’s E. Street Band) is featured playing saxophone on the title track.
The album "Carrying On The Torch Of The Blues" and the first single, “Fooling Around”, are currently available for download at the Organic Recordings Music Store, as well as iTunes and CD Baby worldwide. The CD is available at Amazon.com
