James Hawken on SoundBetter

I'm a multi-genre piano player, composer and band member. After playing in cover bands across Europe, UK and Ireland for many years I'm now concentrating on creating and releasing piano based pieces to calm and relax. This experience has allowed me to develop piano playing in various styles covering Rock, Blues, Ballads, Country and Neoclassical.

Born and raised in the clay villages of Cornwall, I first sat on a stool at a piano aged 7 and started classical training. At 12 or 13 I started teaching myself to play modern rock/pop piano and by age of 14 became a semi-pro. The main live project has been a duo called 'The James Brothers' playing covers in pubs and clubs (although we have written a couple of country songs which we also love to play). We continue to enjoy the live experience. Having performed, across Britain, Europe and Ireland for 40 years I'm now concentrating on creating and releasing piano based music to chill, soothe and relax. The inspiration for the new music emanates from artists such as Max Richter, Olafur Arnalds and Ludovico Einaudi. I've taken the sound and created music incorporating my own feeling and expression.
