Mostly underground for years as a secret songwriter. Kaz Hawkins from East Belfast is now established as one the biggest singers ever to come out of Northern Ireland,  called “A Vocal Force” on stage, she envelops the fighting spirit of a true powerhouse singer. With comparisons to her idol Etta James, Mavis Staples, Janis Joplin, Kaz is loved for her 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 sang “The Blues” but has much more to offer across different genres in her song writing so is now embarking on an exciting mix of genres she has written for her debut album.

With her ‘Band of Men in tow on the release of  her debut album,  her ‘Get Ready’ UK Tour in September 2014 was an accomplished success with her 2015 spring tour already being worked on and the announcement of a USA mini tour to Jamaica Plain,  Boston with a special invite by BOSTON UNIVERSITY to perform & lecture at a special Global Music Seminar, this formidable lady is rising and rising fast, Kaz is a singer songwriter with a difference, she captivates an audition with her vocal range & emotional portrayal of her life. She is one of Belfast’s true characters.

With support gigs under belt such as Van Morrison, Nanci Griffiths, Chris Farlowe, Matt Andersen, Kaz has also guested with top Irish artists such as Brian Kennedy, Pat McManus, Eric Bell.  Kaz has the backing of many influential representatives in Belfast with a presentation from The 2013 Lord Mayor of Belfast Máirtin Ó Muilleoir quoted saying “Belfast is proud of your talent & we know you will go on to great things & we will support you in all you do”..

Your music and lyrics have really moved and touched me and I now know what the tree tatoo you have on your forearm and daughter’s as well means.. It came to me in a dream/ vision/ buzz whatever ya want to call it. I always knew I would never get a tat but I may now. Now that I understand. I am a Heniz 57 but have been told we have Royal Blood related to Henry the 8 bummer man but Much Irish and Whales. See if there is a shield or whatever they call those Family Emblems for McClain. If so I will send ya some money if you kindly would get it for me. I have always been proud of my blood! Not proud of myself but who I knew I truly am meant to be…. Ya dig ? Sherry
