The best kept secret in music


"Daniel Hawks is a young man, who like the rest of us, lives and walks with a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other. He is superstitious, he'll want to know what your sign is, and he generally believes in all sorts of hocus pocus. Born into a life of eternal exodus, Daniel has ventured all over this fine globe in search of a little peace of mind. I wish for him both humbleness and strength on this, his heroic odyssey. Daniel currently resides in the Pacific Northwest, where peace of mind is in abundance, I am told. I am proud of him as a person and also as an artist, and can therefore proudly declare myself his friend. . ."

Feeling a bit camera shy


Daniel has been playing guitar and singing since his mother died and the family moved to Uganda when he was 10. His father showed him 3 chords on his soon to be Yamaha FG-345ii and he began writing lyrics and songs of his own shortly thereafter.

Portland is now Hawks' home for the next few years as he lives and works in the thriving elemental music and art scene there, playing shows and meeting the people.

Growing up in central California, southern Florida, East Africa and the British West Indies really shaped D's wide capacity for rhythm and melody. His music making has been deeply inspired and continuous, reflecting his experiences, both physically and spiritually.
