The Hawkmen

The Hawkmen draw from an array of influences such as rhythm’n’blues, soul, and rock’n’roll which they bring together in a classic, rootsy, hybrid blend.

The band emerged as a full, live act in 2017 following the early successes of Craig Charles’ favourite, Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover (Record Kicks, Italy), a northern soul remix of Emma Beatson’s debut single Do It (selected by Craig Charles for the second volume of his Freestyle Records compilation series) and The Hawkmen’s blazing Keep On Working EP (Mocambo, Germany) which yielded another 45 and was widely played on BBC Radio 2 and Radio 6.

In 2017 Love Is Blind was released and features on the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club Vol.5 compilation and received more BBC 6 Music airplay. 2018 got off to a flying start with the release of the Chemistry Of Love single, yet more plays on BBC 6 Music, leading to a mini UK tour and concerts in Germany and France.

2019 saw the release of Soulful Dress, a huge dance floor hit, with 500 thousand views of the music video on YouTube. The Hawkmen’s self titled debut album, and the live video for ‘Baby Tonight’, which has gone viral on YouTube with over 1.3 million views and rising. In 2021 the band signed to booking agent Midnight Mango, who have since continually secured concerts and festival appearances for the band all over the UK and mainland Europe. 2022 saw the release of the bands second album ‘When It’s Gone”. Single releases taken from the album include Under Your Spell which has been another hit on YouTube, and Hawkmen Stomp, which sold out 7 inch vinyl is now super collectable among discerning DJs.

“Upbeat, extremely danceable, and ridiculously enjoyable sound that flows like sweet nectar” – UK Rock’n’Roll Magazine
