About Adam Hawley Artist Page:
Adam Hawley, currently a resident of Los Angeles, started his music career in the Portland Metro Area of Oregon before moving to Southern California in 2002. The music bug bit early when he came across his parent’s record collection, which ranged from Earth, Wind, & Fire & The Brothers Johnson to Elvis. He started piano at 8 before embarking on his career as a guitarist at 9 years old. Touring came just 5 years later in a bluegrass band that perf...ormed extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest. Then came a blues/rock band which also toured Oregon and Washington.
Following high school, Adam moved to LA at 17 years old to attend the University of Southern California. He received his Bachelor’s, Master's, & Doctorate from USC in Studio/Jazz Guitar. In the world of academia, he has gone on to hold countless masterclasses and clinics worldwide and currently teaches at Musician’s Institute, Chaffey College, and Saddleback College.
Before embarking on a solo career, Adam was also known as a prolific guitarist to the stars, appearing with a who’s who list of artists in a wide variety of genres. Credits include Dave Koz, Jennifer Lopez, Brian Culbertson, Natalie Cole, Brian McKnight, Gerald Albright, Dave Koz and Friends Cruise, and American Idol to name just a few.
In 2015 he was tapped to join Maurice White’s new label Kalimba Music. His debut record “Just The Beginning” garnered numerous accolades and spawned three #1 hit songs, unprecedented for a new artist. The first single «35th St. ft Eric Darius» had the longest run at #1 on Billboard in 2016. He went on to be named Debut Artist of the Year from both Smooth Jazz News and Jazz Trax. His second record “Double Vision” will be released March 23 and its first single is already off to a hot start. The new project features performances from Dave Koz, Jeff Lorber, Marcus Anderson, Julian Vaughan, & Darren Rahn.
