GARRETH HICKLIN

GUITAR, KEYS & VOCALS

Influenced by the music from the likes of Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd and John Mayer, Garreth embarked upon his musical career at a very young age, learning a range of instruments in his spare time as a child.

In fact in order to fit them all in his bedroom, his parents had to customise a fold away bed for him!

During The Illegal Eagles show, Garreth plays electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, piano, drums and saxophone and sings lead and backing vocals. 

He is, however, a ‘master of all trades, jack of none’ and modest with it!
