Gray Hawke

Gray Hawke

Style of performance:

A singer-songwriter with a versatile guitar and vocal style that's equally effective in a crowded pub, trendy café-bar or an intimate folk club setting. His self-penned songs are distinctive and thoughtful - some upbeat, some quite dark. Some tell stories and others reflect on topics as diverse as human relationships, motorbikes and the workings of the endocrine system. He's been a semi-finalist and "borderline finalist" in the UK Songwriting Contest several times.

Repertoire:

Gray mixes his own songs with versions of songs by brilliant songwriters such as Paul Simon, Steve Knightley, Seth Lakeman, Joni Mitchell, Richard Thompson... if the venue and audience is appropriate, he'll also include some more familiar songs from the likes of Elton John and Gerry Rafferty.

Recordings:

2 studio-recorded albums of his own songs:
Desire Lines (2009)
A Place to Live (2011)

More recently he has joined the ranks of home studio producers, using ProTools software and infinite patience...

Other Information:

Originally from South London, Gray was at Lancaster University in the '70s, where he started performing in local pubs and clubs as part of an acoustic trio. He took a short break from music (about 30 years) in order to live a sensible life, have a family and career etc. He's been back on the music scene for the last 7 or 8 years, initially as half of a guitar / vocal duo based in Aylesbury, but as a solo artist for the last 4 years. He's not quite as young as he looks...
