Bio

Hailing from creative hub - Melbourne Victoria, artist Ed Hawke began learning the art of the guitar and writing songs at the age of 13. Through years of practice diving into deep musicality, every song Ed has ever created has been written, recorded & produced at his home.

His upcoming release is heavily influenced by his recent road trip from the sunny palm tree clad streets of California to the hilly landscape of San Francisco. Titled 'Staring up at the Sky', this record is the sonic representation of freeway driving, with the wind in your hair, sunglasses on and the inspiration you find in the seemingly endless horizon.

“I found a new inspiration, peace and direction in the open horizons and hills, only to find that when I returned home, my life in Melbourne was the same as how I’d left it. Making those changes and reigniting that inspiration was going to be a long and slow process. It’s about separation, and longing to be somewhere that you’re not.”
- Ed Hawke

Staring up at the Sky will be released worldwide on Friday the 29th of May.

Smooth little pop roots sonnet, nicely arranged with warm sunshiney melodies and bonus synths giving this one a really perfect balance.

A sunny, smiley guitar record that's got a little of the Paul Simon's to it.
