Hawkns is an Indie Pop Rock band from New Haven, CT. They burst onto the local music scene in the spring of 2019 and immediately began captivating live audiences with their sound and infectious energy. Featuring the unbridled exuberance and vocal prowess of the band’s frontman, 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 top-tier venues around the state including College Street Music Hall, the Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun Casino, Toyota’s Oakdale Dome, Fairfield Theatre Company, The SoNo Collection Mall, and Park City Music Hall.
Their originals are gritty guitar-driven, catchy pop songs characterized by innovative production while also capturing the raw and versatile vocal abilities of their singer. Influenced by transgressive artists, past and present, Hawkns strives to create work that feels as classic as it does contemporary.
