Barry Hawk

Rock // Dublin, Dublin

Taking cues from Beck, Keith Richards, and CSNY Barry Hawk purveys an eclectic brand of power-pop which is as fresh as it is classic.

Born in Cork, Hawk shares his birthday with other pop visionaries such as Damon Albarn, Ric Ocasek and Yvette Marie Stevens. Beginning as a vocalist in a school concert in his native Cork globetrotting troubadour Hawk has soaked up various influences after spells in NYC, Barcelona, Turin, Copenhagen and London. Along the way he has become proficient on guitar, bass, keys and harmonica. In 2009 he put out his first album "21st Century Bluez" - a Prince influenced collection of rockers and ballads. At present based in Dublin, Hawk is currently working on material with collaborators Darkin, Belmondo and Peppino.

The current fruit is the single "Something's Gotta Give" find video here: a slab of pop rock gold with a forward looking message in these solipsistic times.

Keep an eye out for the next track from Hawk "NFTSWY" due out late February.
