Cooper Hickmott (Born December 6, 1989) picked up his very first guitar at age 19 where he began to teach himself to play and has been playing ever since. Cooper Hickmott is completely self taught. Since then he has written 40 originals but only plays 10 of those when performing, the remaining 30 he keeps in a secret and safe place for his eyes only. The inspiration behind the making of Cooper's originals, come from seeing how happy people are and can be, touching the hearts of loved ones/friends and watching people enjoy their nights. This has fueled Cooper's passion to write catchy and heartwarming songs. All of Cooper's originals are a based around his life story, friends, family and the love for his partner. It is Cooper's dad ( Phillip Hickmott) that gave Cooper the idea to pick up a guitar and find what is today his passion. To quote "I just wanted to play guitar". Wanting to one day open his own recording studio where musicians can come and record their songs and also purchase any musical item that they desire. Lucid Wings is the name of Cooper's open band. Cooper is Lucid and the musicians that play with him are his wings. Cooper has gained the help fro his partner (Samantha Harrison) who has drawn up designs and logos for Lucid Wings. The pair have put their heads together to come up with some amazing artwork.
Cooper aka Lucid has played at may venues and pubs around the local town of Mackay including the Wintermoon festival.
Outside of music, Cooper is a devoted partner and a loyal friend. He has been with his partner Samantha Harrison since ANZAC DAY 2015, where he continues to show her love and plan out their future. The couple really are a power house team/couple.
