Album Notes
Rocked to sleep as a child to Stevie Wonder, Dechen Hawk's music ranges from beautiful ballads to serious backbeat funk. Hawk's sound is a refreshing new addition to the Neo-Soul movement. Though musical his whole life, it wasn't until the death of his father at age 14, and the search for a way to express that loss, that Hawk found his calling as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. It was also at this time the Hawk was introduces to the music of Jeff Buckley, which influenced him heavily during this time of grief and musical exploration. Hawk's desire to create and express the joy and fragility of life has kept him busy for the past 18 years performing locally and internationally, sharing billings with such legends as Bruce Hornsby, Leon Russell, R.E.M., Ty Burhoe, Ron Miles, and the Fun Lovin' Criminals. During this time Hawk has written hundreds of songs, released 6 albums, been in numerous bands, played the role of talent buyer for various venues. A 2009 graduate of Naropa University, Hawk studied with Bill Douglas, Art Lande, and Janet Feder.

"...I knew he was a bad cat when he hopped up on stage from the audience instead of the traditional backstage entrance..., his vocals rivaling Jason Mraz[.]... it was a highlight of the night on the big stage."
- Mary Panton, Elephant Journal
"...Hawk['s]... contemplative practices—sitting meditation and yoga—are woven into his music making." 
"...multi-instrumentalist Dechen Hawk['s]... soulful music is strikingly similar to “Lover, You Should’ve Come Over” and other remarkable Buckley tunes." 
"The shrillness of Hawk's call pierces the state of unawareness and asks you to speak the truth." 
"Songwriter with an edge"
