Kaz Hawkins Band
Winners European Blues Challenge 2017!
Northern Ireland’s multi award winning, song writing songstress Kaz Hawkins is no longer its best-kept secret. Multi-award winning and unique with 'knock your socks off' vocals from an equally delicious firework of a character. Full of life in her unmistakable trademark look and a stage presence that beckoned being more than solely a songwriter. Kaz’s stellar rise to success will be no surprise to fans around the world she has been wooing for years with her deep, powerful voice, original song writing and soulful tracks, the latest featured in the band’s Feelin’ Good album which won IBBA (International Blues Broadcasters Association) Album of the Year 2016 and number 3 IBBA charts for 2016. No mean feat for the woman who owes surviving a life of physical and emotional hardship to music and a larger-than-life personality that doesn’t take setbacks lying down! Described as high energy and emotional soul, Kaz takes you through her life’s journey in song and it’s an emotional one.
With a recent USA solo promotional tour in December 2016 in which Kaz wowed American audiences with her truthful no holds barred performances and KHB winning the UK Blues Challenge earning them the right to represent the United Kingdom, the band is on fire. KHB will go on to be the first band ever to represent the UK in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee in January 2017. They will also compete in the European Blues Challenge in Denmark in April 2017. Kaz will also be taking on a piano & voice tour when the band is off the road in July and will be collaborating with Sam York who has worked with Tom Jones, Ed Sheeran and more on a personal release in 2017.
