A collaboration of Hip-hop-flavored electro beats and the soul of the 70’s funk era sprinkled with an electrifying live show and the decadence of 80’s synth-pop.

Biography

Legend has it that there exists a sacred funk stone. Although the origin of the stone is unknown, it is said to possess great powers. It holds the key to link the future of music to the legacy of it’s past, giving the power to create the perfect balance between the two. Some suggest the stone is just a myth, while others believe it has been eternally lost. The truth couldn’t be further from the reality. FishHawk, extracted the powers of the stone allowing the band to create monolithic songs that bleed every inch of sanity out of you, fuse it with electric sex, and then drip it back onto your tongue.

FishHawk was formed during the summer of 2006 when guitarist Andy Slagle and vocalist Nick Nickerson stumbled upon the funk stone one fabled day. The result proved other-worldly. Almost immediately there began an endlessly flowing creation of life, death and altered reality pulled together with lyrics that are conveyed with soulful exuberance. Atmospheric based beats strained through a style of emotive and immaculate production would be woven around this energy to create a recipe for a new dawn, but not before adding guitarist Matt Williams, who, alongside Andy shares full co-producing responsibility. With the aggressiveness of Matt’s pastel guitars now warming the canvas, the stage was set for the live FishHawk experience to be repeatedly painted, erased, and then reinvented right before wondering eyes. The buzz has already started generating.

“No matter if it’s spacing out or popping and locking, it will be hard to keep any limbs and extremities still.” Though this quote in Southeast Performer magazine was meant to describe FishHawk’s first release, it epitomizes the band’s live show. With their newly developed hype in the Atlanta area, the band continues to draw an ample number of people to venues such as The Vinyl, Smith’s Olde Bar, and Seven Stages Theatre. As stated in the first lyric of their debut album, FishHawk is “most positively moving in the right direction!”

This collaboration of Hip-hop-flavored electro beats and the soul of the 70’s funk era may be new to some when sprinkled with an electrifying live show and the decadence of 80’s synth-pop, FishHawk and their funk stone have masterfully combined these elements together to form a fresh yet timeless experience. This experience, some say, is no more than just another fairy tale, but to others who have witnessed them in person, the FishHawk legend continues to spread.
