A portentous female singer. Discovering Kaz Hawkins for the first time makes you face one of those privileged occasions that music gives you a few times in your life. A fighting woman, who takes each song as far as her experience as a survivor has allowed her to get there. Born in Belfast (North Ireland) in 1973, she has been in music for more than twenty years,  released her first album in 2014 and as duo or full band format she has built a reputation that today is consolidated as the most irresistible and capable blues vocalist in Europe. Her vocal power is at the service of each phrasing, sweet in the harmony and intense when pain is narrated in a close way. Last year she released her new band, and she did it at the french Cognac Blues Passions Festival with a tribute to the blues-diva Etta James, her greatest influence as a singer. The success of the show has led her to bring the experience into the studio recording, and the result is the self-released album "Memories Of", where she turns into masterpieces not only the covers of Etta James but the approaches to the music of Willie Dixon and  Otis Redding as well as the majestic performance of WC Handy's "St. Louis Blues". From France, her current residence, Kaz Hawkins appeals to all those who seek freedom of the soul in the emotion of the songs, it's as simple as real.
