I spoke to The Hawkmen about bringing a duo option on to Music At My House, they were dead keen – but wanted to make it more than just a duo. I explained that we needed to keep costs down – they agreed, but they just want to play and they already have an acoustic project called Hawkmen TV! So we’re looking at a three or perhaps even a four-piece set up for the same price you would get them for a duo. Result!
The Hawkmen draw from an array of influences such as rhythm’ n’ blues, soul, and rock’n’roll which they bring together in a classic, rootsy, hybrid blend. The band emerged as a full, live act in 2017 following the early successes of soul 45 and Craig Charles favourite, Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover.
The Hawkmen’s video ‘Baby Tonight’, went viral on YouTube with over half a million views and rising. Their live concerts were going from strength to strength and then the dreaded virus forced them off the road…
