Brothers Joe, Josh, and Ricky Frank are self-taught, multi-instrumentalists who began their musical journey as children. They’ve played together in various innovations over the past 15 years including performances at The Bitter End in New York City and the Pleasantville Music Festival where they shared the stage with major acts such as Blues Traveler and Living Color. In 2019, while teaching, recording, and producing music at a local music studio, the Frank brothers met Hawkins French who had come to the studio for voice lessons. The brothers quickly recognized Hawkins’ raw vocal abilities and his burgeoning stage presence and the foursome formed soon after as the Pop Rock outfit HAWKNS.
Within their first year as a band their debut single
"Lights Off" amassed 115,000+ streams on Spotify and they began to perform shows all around the East Coast.
