Venice Beach based Will Hawkins hails from the original ghost town of Sleepy Hollow, NY. The critically acclaimed songwriter has made a name for himself with his vivid storytelling and haunting voice. His debut release Next Stop Bedford Avenue was a favorite on BBC radio that helped define the Americana music movement in the UK in the early 2000's with hits Around and Breathe with AAA radio in the US.
His follow-up release Ghost Town was a dark, melancholy look at loss, redemption and forgiveness in a post 9/11 world and brought him to the attention to a whole new listenership. The song Johnstown received nationwide airplay and Will had multiple television appearances thanks to his heartfelt story of a injured soldier returning home to face a new life. The song was also adopted by Pennsylvania Congressman John Murtha's successful reelection bid in 2008 and will performed at his nationally televised rally on CNN.
Always known for his powerful live performances, keep an eye out for Hawkins out on tour with his band The Good Intentions.
