Hinda Hicks is a Tunisian born singer with British nationality having moved to West Sussex as a child. Hinda originally sang with an R'n'B band called the Fabulous Fug Band and at one time sent a demo of her vocals alongside Aretha Franklin's Giving Him Something He Can Feel to the artist Phil Collins. However she continued to remain unsigned and moved to London working as as a secretary and singing with a band called Mixed Fruits. Eventually she was introduced to Jazz Black, a London music producer, and auditioned to Randy Crawford's One Day I'll Fly Away which led to interest from a number of record companies. She signed to Island Records and her first single I Wanna Be Your Lady was released in late 1997 followed by her first album, eponymously-titled Hinda in 1998. Hinda's first released single failed to make the UK singles chart although a more concerted promotional campaign by her record company saw "If You Want Me" chart at 25 in February 1998. She followed this up with the release of "You Think You Own Me" in May of the same year which reached 19th. Her fourth single, a re-release of "I Wanna Be Your Lady" achieved her highest chart position to date, at 14th in August of 1998. During the summer of 1998 Hinda promoted both her single and her album on mainstream TV and radio shows in the UK and she took supporting roles on tours with Boyzone amongst others. By the end of the year "Truly" had charted at 31 and the brief bubble of success had appeared to burst. Having begun work on her second album Hinda released a new single, "My Remedy", in 2000 but alleged difficulties with her label including Island Records' merger with Universal Records and an apparent lack of promotion saw it fail to chart in the regular Top 40. The second album was slated for a late 2000 release and titled Everything to Me. A handful of promotional copies and limited releases were made available but commercially the launch was pulled and Hinda and her record company parted ways. In between record companies and albums, Hinda nevertheless found time to record vocals on other artists' tracks including "Let's Do It Again" with the late Lynden David Hall which featured on his album "Other Side" and a compilation album (Pure R&B Volume 2)[1] together with Brand New Day with Terri Walker, appearing on Walker's Untitled album [2]. Hinda's 'second' album was finally released in July 2004, titled Still Doin' My Thing on a small R'n'B label, Shout Out Records. The single "Up Up" from the second album was released in summer of 2004 and once again Hinda failed to repeat her successes of six years previously and did not make the Top 40. In February 2007, Hinda announced on her official MySpace page that her long awaited third album, titled 'Where You Belong', is near completion and is due for a late 2007/early 2008 release on an independent label.
