Hawk’s solo shows are a colourful and confident display of his wit, charm and sensitivity as a songwriter. A natural storyteller, Hawk leaves audiences unwavering in their loyalty. Offering so much of himself yet revealing so little, Hawk’s ability to surprise, enchant and bewilder at every turn has rendered him an endearing figure in the Scottish contemporary music scene.
The versatility of Hawk’s songwriting becomes clear when it is performed alongside his four-piece backing band, The New Outfit. Formed in 2015 as a means to flesh out Hawk’s live sound, The New Outfit adds exuberance to the youthful charisma of a man wise beyond his years. The result is a strikingly fresh look at Scottish existence, in all of its grit and grandeur.
Hamish has shared the stage with Idlewild, Simon Joyner, The Tearaways, Evan Dando of The Lemonheads, Charlie Cunningham, Euros Childs of Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, This Is The Kit, and Viking Moses.
