Renowned bluesman Paul Jones on his BBC Radio 2 show is a fan, chatting about her tour dates and clearly enjoying her new songs ‘It Ain’t You’ & ‘Don’t Wait For Me’ and her great rendition of ‘Feelin’ Good’.
“…terrific vocal performance from her and also lovely guitar playing from Nick McConkey” – Paul Jones
The new CD has received stupendous reviews
“Her band is a rhythm powerhouse”
“Multi-award winning and unique with ‘knock your socks off’ vocals from an equally delicious firework of a character”
“her voice deep with soul and emotion and then the words, they are spell-binding. Stop what you are doing and listen, this is a soulful philosophy for life This is Me and all I wanted to be.” – Bluesdoodles
Festivals have said:
“the audience wouldn’t let her go and the headliners kindly agreed to start late!”
“Kaz Hawkins absolutely fantastic, cannot believe her voice!”
“She lives up to the hype about her forceful presence, leading from the front with her extraordinary voice – not just because of its power, or her occasional incredible falsetto, but more importantly because of its soulfulness”
