Cale Hawkins creates music from a small, windowless room in Brooklyn.
Hailing from Bemus Point, NY (population: 364), Hawkins has lived as a nomadic musician since 2012, touring, writing, and producing internationally with a wide array of artists and groups. His genre is best described as desperation.
Hawkins is a regular collaborator and contributor to the original music of Arthur Moon, Ben Talmi, Raveena, Sulene, Elisa, Evan Nachimson, Stevie Wolf, J3PO, and several other Brooklyn-based artists. Past credits include work with Quincy Jones, Nate Ruess, Wyclef Jean, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Gabriel Garzón-Montano, Nikki Yanofsky, Carrie Manolakos, and KAMAU.
Hawkins is a multi-instrumentalist, interchangeably playing keyboards, guitar, and bass guitar during his live performances. He is frequently joined by Ansel Cohen (cello) and Chase Potter (violin).
