They burst onto the Connecticut music scene in the spring of 2019 and immediately began captivating live audiences with their precision sound and infectious energy. Featuring the unbridled exuberance and vocal prowess of the band’s front man, Hawkins French, and the unparalleled, virtuoso guitar playing of lead guitarist, Joe Frank, this foursome has quickly become a highly sought-after live act. In a relatively short time, they’ve gained a large following and have performed in over 40 venues around the state including the Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun Casino (two shows), Toyota’s Oakdale Dome in Wallingford (CT Craft Brew Festival), the Fairfield Theatre Company (FTC), The SONO’s Collection Summer Concert Series (Norwalk), Captain’s Cove Seaport (Bridgeport), Park City Music Hall (Bridgeport), Crystal Bees (Southington), Tiernan’s (Stamford), and Stonebridge (Milford).

Influenced by transgressive artists, past and present, Hawkns strives to create work that feels as classic as it does contemporary.
