New and upcoming artist Angelic Siren provides the younger generation a new way to appreciate and understand music in today’s society. Born Robert Hicks, the 28 year old New York native has been currently working on his EP, and also has two successful businesses. One of his companies, Angelic Siren Music Group, LLC, provides written songs to aspiring music artists that are moving forward in the music world. The other company provides childcare to local families in the greater New York areas.
Angelic Siren has performed in multiple cities, including California, Philadelphia, and New Jersey. His songs are also on multiple music sites that include Tidal, Spotify and ITunes. The name “Angelic Siren” originated from family and friends that always referred to his voice as “angelic” and sounding like a special angel from heaven. In the future, Angelic Siren will be working towards creating a non-profit organization that will help support those who have been through domestic violence, child abuse, suicide and depression. This affects many Americans on a daily basis, and this foundation will help those who are in need.
