About Adam Hawley
Adam Hawley, a resident of Los Angeles, started his music career in the Portland Area of Oregon before moving to Southern California. The music bug bit early when he came across his parent’s record collection, which ranged from Earth, Wind, & Fire & The Brothers Johnson to Elvis. Adam started piano at age 8 before embarking on his career as a guitarist at 9 years old! Touring came just 5 years later in a bluegrass band that performed extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest followed by a blues/rock band touring Oregon and Washington.
Adam moved to LA at 17 to attend the University of Southern California. He received his Bachelors, Masters & Doctorate from USC in Studio/Jazz Guitar. He has gone on to hold countless master classes and clinics worldwide and currently teaches at the Musician’s Institute, Chaffey College, and Saddleback College.
Adam was known as a prolific guitarist to the stars, appearing with a who’s who list of artists in a wide variety of genres including Dave Koz, Jennifer Lopez, Brian Culbertson, Natalie Cole, Brian McKnight, Gerald Albright, Dave Koz and Friends Cruise and American Idol to name a few.
In 2015 he was tapped to join Maurice White’s new label Kalimba Music. His debut record Just The Beginning garnered numerous accolades and three #1 hit songs, unprecedented for a new artist. The first single "35th St. ft Eric Darius" had the longest run at #1 on Billboard in 2016. He was named Debut Artist of the Year from Smooth Jazz News and Jazz Trax.
Adam’s latest CD Double Vision (2018) has jumped out of the gates with Three #1 Hits! All 6 of Adam’s singles have topped the charts! The album also includes special guests Dave Koz, Jeff Lorber, Darren Rahn, Julian Vaughan, and Kat Hawley.
