Hampstead Jazz Club in association with The Soul Of London Radio and in partnership with PizzaExpress Live, proudly presents Guitarist and Producer Adam Hawley who has burst onto the USA scene as a celebrated and innovative artist, composer and band leader. Handpicked by Maurice White (founder of Earth, Wind, & Fire) he first debuted on the legend’s label Kalimba Music. In all, Adam’s four albums and work as a producer has spawned an incredible Twelve Billboard #1 Hits. In it’s first week, the 3rd record “Escape” was the #1 Selling Album in the Nation, outselling every other contemporary jazz album as per Nielsen. Adam performs a dynamic combination of scintillating original contemporary jazz selections (12 Billboard #1 Hits) combined with some of your favourite selections from Stevie Wonder, EWF, Demi Lovato, Gap Band, Chris Brown, John Legend, and more.
This will be a sell-out so early booking is strongly advised!
His debut single went on to become the Billboard and Smooth Jazz Network Song of the Year for 2020. He followed this up with the 4th album “Risin’ Up;” it’s title track again reached the top of the Billboard charts in late ’21. 2022 was particularly successful including four more #1’s, culminating with 2022 song of the year. Coupling this with a robust touring schedule throughout the world, the best is yet to come.
In addition touring as a leader, he has also played for Jennifer Lopez, Natalie Cole, Lalah Hathaway, The Manhattan Transfer, Brian McKnight, and appeared on American Idol in the house band to name a few. He also is an educator holding a Doctorate in Musical Arts from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
