KAZ HAWKINS Hallelujah Tour 

Mount Stewart Summer Garden Party

KAZ HAWKINS BIO

Mostly underground for years as a secret songwriter. Kaz Hawkins from East Belfast is now established as one the biggest singers ever to come out of Northern Ireland, called “A Vocal Force” on stage, she envelops the fighting spirit of a true powerhouse singer. With comparisons to her idol Etta James, Mavis Staples, Janis Joplin, Kaz is loved for her down to earth attitude; she brings fun to every performance & is loved not only by her fans but anyone who meets her. She has lived and sang “The Blues” but has much more to offer across different genres in her song writing so is now embarking on an exciting mix of genres she has written for her debut album.

With her Band O ‘Men in tow and the release of her debut album ‘Get Ready‘ the bands UK Tour in September 2014 was an accomplished success, with her 2015 spring tour already being worked on and a special invite by BOSTON UNIVERSITY for Kaz to perform & lecture at a special Global Music Seminar in December representing Eastside Arts this formidable lady is rising and rising fast. Kaz Hawkins is a singer songwriter with a difference, she captivates an audition with her vocal range & emotional portrayal of her life. She is one of Belfast’s true characters.

With support gigs under belt such as Van Morrison, Nanci Griffiths, Chris Farlowe, Matt Andersen, Kaz has also guested with top Irish artists such as Brian Kennedy, Pat McManus, Eric Bell. Kaz has the backing of many influential representatives in Belfast with a presentation from The 2013 Lord Mayor of Belfast Máirtin Ó Muilleoir quoted saying “Belfast is proud of your talent & we know you will go on to great things & we will support you in all you do”..

#SleepTonight by +Robb Murphy 
https://robbmurphy.bandcamp.com/track/sleep-tonight
( #download   / #CD   / Limited Edition Double #Vinyl  

The album was written in Italy in the summer of 2012 and it has grown into something much more than the initial plan of recording a relatively quick, acoustic solo album. It took months of recording, preparation & hard work, but result is there! An amazing album featuring musicians such as the +Ulster String Quartet  (Danny McCann-Williams, Sian Hetherington, Nicholas Rippon and Thomas Jackson), Amanda Agnew and Percy Robinson.

You can order the album through Bandcamp.
Several #exclusive  options available!

Robb is a singer songwriter from Belfast. The second studio album, 'Sleep Tonight', will be released on Feb 28th 2015 ‘”Technically masterful and clear-cut”.... Goldenplec “Starting as a piece of gentle acoustic pop, with hints of Jose Gonzalez and Damien Rice before cascading into synth-laden electro is no easy task, Robb makes fusing the two seem easy” ....

KAZ HAWKINS BIO

Mostly underground for years as a secret songwriter. Kaz Hawkins from East Belfast is now established as one the biggest singers ever to come out of Northern Ireland, called “A Vocal Force” on stage, she envelops the fighting spirit of a true powerhouse singer. With comparisons to her idol Etta James, Mavis Staples, Janis Joplin, Kaz is loved for her down to earth attitude; she brings fun to every performance & is loved not only by her fans but anyone who meets her. She has lived and sang “The Blues” but has much more to offer across different genres in her song writing so is now embarking on an exciting mix of genres she has written for her debut album.

With her Band O ‘Men in tow and the release of her debut album ‘Get Ready‘ the bands UK Tour in September 2014 was an accomplished success, with her 2015 spring tour already being worked on and a special invite by BOSTON UNIVERSITY for Kaz to perform & lecture at a special Global Music Seminar in December representing Eastside Arts this formidable lady is rising and rising fast. Kaz Hawkins is a singer songwriter with a difference, she captivates an audition with her vocal range & emotional portrayal of her life. She is one of Belfast’s true characters.

With support gigs under belt such as Van Morrison, Nanci Griffiths, Chris Farlowe, Matt Andersen, Kaz has also guested with top Irish artists such as Brian Kennedy, Pat McManus, Eric Bell. Kaz has the backing of many influential representatives in Belfast with a presentation from The 2013 Lord Mayor of Belfast Máirtin Ó Muilleoir quoted saying “Belfast is proud of your talent & we know you will go on to great things & we will support you in all you do”..

PRESS:
Often branded Belfast's answer to Etta James & Janis Joplin, Kaz is known for her unique vocal sound. 

“Rising Star Award 2014″ Kaz Hawkins will make a welcome festival addition" (Simon Redley, Blues & Soul Magazine)

“She blew the audience away with her soulful, intense, expressive singing of repertoire almost entirely composing of original compositions” (Trevor Hodgett, Blues Matters Magazine)

“Shes my favorite Singer/Songwriter around at the minute” (Marie-Louise Muir, BBC Radio Ulster Arts Extra)

“What a wonderful attitude to life she has, a great artist” (George Jones, Downtown Radio)

“What a Voice” (Gerry Kelly, BBC Radio Ulster)

“One of our True Blues Stars” (Ralph McLean, BBC Radio Ulster)

“Your amazing in all you do & Belfast will support you, I know you will achieve great success” (Belfast Lord Mayor Máirtín Ó Muilleoir )

From the school of Janis Joplin, this woman has a set of pipes that would intimidate a church organ”(Paddy Whacked Radio USA)

“She makes Beth Ditto look like your shy, retiring auntie and boy can that girl sing, even at her most vulnerable during ‘Lipstick and Cocaine’, it’s still a huge vocal performance which reverberates” (Scott Edgar, Folk & Tumble Blog )

“Close your eyes, listen to Kaz and be transported back to a golden age of great female vocalists. Aretha, Dusty, Gladys, Etta – you’ll hear shades of them all.” (Mark Halsall, Musicians Together Magazine)

“She walks the jagged edge of broken and dysfunctional relationships with people and substances through her words and makes it all real with the kind of confident and worldly vocals that are decorated with nothing more than sheer authenticity. In these artificial times, there is something positively refreshing about Kaz’s down to earth approach. ” (Bluesbuddy, Bluesbunny Independant)

“Every so often, us man-children at CYOF get a firm slap across our legs, get told to shut off the punk and listen to grown up music.” (Paul Kavanagh, Chew you own Fat Blog)

Some call her Mama Kaz. Some call her Kaz Hawkins. The name doesn’t really matter when you bring this much sass and attitude to the stage. The metamorphosis to rockabilly-blues diva Kaz Hawkins is complete and today’s set is a masterclass of blues renaissance. There are moments of beautifully tender blues that Otis Redding would’ve been proud off” (Scott Edgar, Folk & Tumble Blog @ Gig in the Garden Festival)

“Kaz is more than ‘just’ a voice and she wants the world to know it. She exudes the fighting spirit of someone who has fought all their life to be accepted for what they are and what they want to be”.
(Al Gilmore, Chordblossom Reviewer)

” Kaz may be from Belfast but her soul and inspiration lies elsewhere in a soulful, less convention strangled era”
(Claire S Kane, Music Reviewer, Ireland)

How often does an artist blow you away on first listen? Kaz has a powerhouse voice on par with the late Etta James with an astonishing vocal range and passionate approach to her performance, Kaz grabs your attention and does not let go. (Review by Kevin Carney, Music Review Unsigned Magazine)
