Northern Irish blues and soul darling Kaz Hawkins to launch new album on 28th May
The Belfast born singer-songwriter’s high energy, original shows, her 1950’s style swing-dress-meets-Dr Martens look and her ability to closely connect with the audience, make Kaz Hawkins one of the most popular blues artists in the UK right now.
Underground for years as a secret songwriter, Kaz Hawkins is now established as one the biggest performers to come out of Northern Ireland. Locally called “a vocal force” on stage, she envelops the fighting spirit of a true powerhouse singer.
Kaz is much-loved for her deep, powerful voice, original songwriting and down to earth attitude; she brings fun to every performance & is loved not only by her fans, but anyone who meets her. She has lived and sung ‘The Blues’, yet has much more to offer across differing genres – soul, rockabilly, folk & more.
Kaz hopes the new sound of her forthcoming album will show a modern twist to the blues and roots she adores, alongside newly penned songs written, as ever, to inspire, excite and move.
Kaz’s new album Feelin Good promises to be not just a collection of songs; it’s a progression of Kaz’s work, a representation of how far she has come as an artist.
Feelin Good will be officially launched on Saturday 28th May at Belfast’s iconic Empire Music Hall, before the band head out across the UK for their biggest tour to date. Feelin Good albums will be available for sale via the band’s website after 28th May 2016, with digital downloads to follow.
