Chris Hawkes is a native Texas singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. In 2007 Hawkes released a much anticipated solo effort "Guitar and Voice" with the single "Falling Into Doubt" featured on MTV shortly after the debut.
Hawkes can be described as a rock guitarist with a dynamic voice. Think Robert Plant to Chris Martin. His lyrics are meaningful, personal and straightforward. When asked to describe his music Hawkes noted,
"My favorite part of creating a song is open expression of something very personal or getting a specific message across. Stepping back and going “yeah, that’s exactly what it feels like.”
His drive for expression doesn’t end in songwriting. Chris also pours himself into each performance both recorded and live.
As you’d expect from the title of his first EP “Guitar and Voice”, the recording features solo acoustic performances. It’s an intimate moment between artist and listener as if he were singing the song directly to you.
Working both as a producer and independent musician creates an interesting blend. “I feel extremely blessed to have my music, my relationships and creative energy all intermingle. It gives me so much freedom to express and constantly challenges me to bring something to the table. I guess it’s my job but it never feels like work.”
