RICKY has always been a driven performer and whilst BLACK STAR RIDERS is his main priority he also found time to mine his creative soul and created two new solo records. RICKY explains, “While we were working on the new BSR album, I just got into a very productive song writing zone. The songs just kept coming and coming”. RICKY writes songs in a number of styles and many of these tracks would not be at home on a BLACK STAR RIDERS album. So, he decided to record and to release these albums as solo projects.

The results are the beautiful acoustic album »Hearts on Trees« and the more hard-rock centred »When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues)« which will be released as a double album by Nuclear Blast.

RICKY comments "»Hearts On Trees« and »When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues)« were written by myself and my good friend Sam Robinson, both albums depict our experiences of growing up and coming from the Greater East Belfast area, not only experiences that have happened to us but historical references and stories that have been told to us by friends and family...in saying that both albums translate those experiences on to a global scale that hopefully anyone geographically can relate to.”

The release also boasts an array of acclaimed musicians with guests such as; Joe Elliot (DEF LEPPARD), Damon Johnson (THIN LIZZY/BLACK STAR RIDERS), Andy Cairns (THERAPY?), Billy Morrison (BILLY IDOL), Nathan Connolly (SNOW PATROL), Ginger Wildheart, Jake Burns (STIFF LITTLE FINGERS), Richard Fortus (GUNS N’ ROSES/DEAD DAISIES), Mark Thwaite (THE MISSION/PETER MURPHY)

RICKY put together a full band to bring these great songs to fruition on the stage contacting some of the amazing musicians he has befriended over the years and virtually overnight The Fighting Hearts were born. To kick things off, RICKY WARWICK & THE FIGHTING HEARTS will be supporting Belfast’s own favourite sons, STIFF LITTLE FINGERS on their UK tour in Feb/March of 2016.
