Claire Hawkins

Folk // Dublin, Dublin // she/her

Claire Hawkins has brought her unique Americana sound across the globe.

Her latest EP ‘The Name’ mixes the traveling singer/songwriter’s folk-rock influences with her modern pop sensibilities. Written across Berlin, Dublin, and New York City, the songs’ themes are as eclectic as the cities that inspired them. Hawkins celebrated the release with dual EP launch shows at Whelan’s in Dublin and Mercury Lounge in New York City, and an Ireland and UK tour, which was sponsored by the travel guitar company Journey Instruments.

Earlier in 2023 she completed the prestigious Odyssée Artist-in-Residence Program, where she was funded by the French Ministry of Culture and the Association des Centres Culturels de Rencontre to spend a month in Southern France working on an original songwriting project. The residency culminated in a concert and artist talk for the local community at Le Théâtre Jean Piat.

In addition to her extensive performance schedule, Hawkins shares her music online in culture-forward travel videos, highlighting her experiences on the road as an independent musician. Her YouTube channel has amassed more than 1.5 million views and over 17,000 subscribers from all over the world.

Graduate of NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, Hawkins has released three EPs and multiple singles. She is currently recording her next project, working with producer Hana Elion of the band Overcoats, and has an upcoming artist residency with Crabtree Sessions on the island of North Haven in Maine. Hawkins is based between Dublin and New York City.

Community and connection are the heart of the work that Hawkins does. As she travels the globe with her songs, Hawkins hopes to bring people together, in the way that only music can.
