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 whom 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 the Kaz Hawkins band on fire after winning the UK Blues Challenge, they earned the right to represent the United Kingdom in Memphis, being the first British band ever to compete in the International Blues Challenge in Tennessee in January 2017, where they won a well-deserved place in the semi-finals. April 2017 saw another huge success for Kaz and the Band in Denmark, winning the European Blues Challenge - the first time in the event’s history, that a UK band has won.
