Biography

Josh Hawkins has been roaming the rock venues of the Midwest with his band, The Hawk, for the past year and a half--building a powerful following around a ferocious live show and a front man with the range of Buckley and the brazenness of a carnival barker. Supporting his 2006 EP, Tied With Tiny Strings marked the debut recording by this genre-jumping band of musical misfits, Josh Hawkins will be embarking on his first solo tour that will take him throughout the Midwest, East Coast, UK and Greece through 2006.

Hawkins cut his teeth playing guitar with some of Louisville’s most well-known independent bands like dharmachine, the simple and Waterproof Blonde. Facing the decision to potentially step up into the limelight and front his own band, Josh immediately began writing a substantial amount of songs driven by a desire for diversity of style and melody… challenging the listener and the musician. While honing these new songs at smaller solo performances, Josh began building The Hawk member by member in late 2004.
