Bio

Billy Hawn is a freelance drummer/percussionist based in Los Angeles, CA. Before relocating to the West Coast in 2001, Billy lived in Minneapolis, MN where he recorded, performed, and toured with various artists, honing his skills to become one of the most sought after multi-percussionists in the Midwestern United States today.

Billy has shared the stage with such artists as: The Indigo Girls, Jackson Browne, Kendall Payne, Sister Hazel, David Crosby, Shannon Curfman, Charlotte Martin, The Gin Blossoms, Peter Erskine, Giovanni Hidalgo, Huffamoose, Pat McGee Band, The Nadas, Marlee MacLeod, Hello Dave, Nina Storey, and many others. When “off the road", Billy can be found playing various gigs and studio sessions with some of the best musicians in the Los Angeles and San Francisco area.

Billy developed his love for percussion and drumming in his early teen years when he was introduced to the world of marching percussion. It was this overwhelming love that eventually led him to become a member of the world renowned Madison Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps, where he studied under the likes of Mr. Jeff Moore and Mr. Chris Thompson. During this same time, Billy began his studies of hand and concert percussion with Dr. Terry Vermillion.

In 1993, Billy began teaching high school marching percussion where he remained for five and a half years, teaching, inspiring, and encouraging countless high school students throughout the Midwest. During this time, Billy diligently built his own personal percussive reputation both live and in the studio.

Billy is known among his peers in the music business for his unique fusion of kit, hand drums, and percussion. Billy’s tremendous passion for adding just the right amount of percussive “spice” to any style of music—whether on stage or under the mic—continues to be his defining trait, and one that makes him a perfect addition to any artist’s sound.
