Julz Parker – Musician of the Year 2020
Although she is currently one half of award-winning blues n roots duo, Hussy Hicks, Julz Parker’s resume is impressive in its own right, beginning when she played in her first band at age 13. Since then, Parker’s career has had an upward trajectory, seeing her tour with Phil Emmanuel as his second guitarist; form ‘Project Winterhaven’, a band with her brother that toured relentlessly and played Glastonbury Festival 2004; then move to London where she played in UK indie band ‘The Crimea’, with whom she supported The Kings of Leon, Dashboard Confessional, Travis and Ash. Her talents also extend to production, having recently produced Beccy Cole’s Golden Guitar Nominated 2019 album, as well as Hussy Hicks’ upcoming album, due for release in 2021. As “the country’s top female player” (Australian Guitar Magazine), Parker continues to impress audiences internationally, from the stages of the world’s best festivals and venues.
