Bio

Jimmy Hawk is one of Melbourne’s well-regarded folk-psych treasures. An always shifting exploratory songwriter, Jimmy sings songs about faded romances and kaleidoscopic affairs, reminiscing on youth and desire through his soulful melodies and swaggering charm.

In 2006, Jimmy’s debut EP ‘For You Blue’ garnered much interest internationally and landed him festival spots in the US at the Mid-West Music Summit and International Pop Overthrow. With the tour that followed he supported favourites such as Cold War Kids, & Silversun Pick Ups. In Australia, Jimmy Hawk has also been fortunate enough to share the stage with such artists as The Shins & Temper Trap.

The seeds for Jimmy Hawk's recent Album 'Echo Park' were planted when he rented a room in Echo Park, an artistic area of Downtown, L.A. Tailing from the swirling breakup of his long time band, he escaped to the vibrancy of Echo Park and surrounded himself with records, a guitar, and sunshine. He lived there for three months, filling his days listening to records by Dylan, Johnny Burnette and the Neil Young. This special time slowly began feeding an uninhibited new musical focus and became the seeds for Jimmy Hawk's upcoming debut album, Echo Park.
