Jamie R Hawkins

Jamie R Hawkins is an Award Winning Singer Songwriter whose songs have won him critical acclaim in the UK and around the world.

His song 'Bloody Good Xmas' won the acoustic/folk category in the 2011 UK Songwriting Contest and went on to achieve a #2 position in the Amazon download charts. He has since gone from strength to strength, forging for himself a dedicated and growing fan-base in the U.K, particularly in the Southwest of England - His songs are receiving regular airplay from local and regional radio stations around the UK.

Jamie has been described as "a powerful mixture of storyteller, philosopher and poet", his lyrics as "poignant and witty" and his performances, "emotive and captivating".

January 2016 saw the release of his well received second EP, 'Capacity To Change' and in March he embarked upon his first solo European Tour. His successes overseas secured him a return tour in August where he began recording his much anticipated third EP with independent Swiss label, Funk Street Records with plans to release another in the UK in April 2017.
Jamie can usually be found either in the studio scribbling away in his dog-eared note book, or performing his songs to the masses armed with only an acoustic guitar, stomp block, loop pedal and a set of lungs....
