Caleb Hawleyalways wanted to be a professional baseball player. However instead of big muscles and outstanding eye/hand coordination, life granted him fast fingers and massive vocal chords. He took his gifts and set off to be a musician. He is recognized as a new star on the concert stage, spanning the pop, jazz, and folk spectrum with a virtuoso guitar technique and a great big voice that can sing just about anything. He has several performances on YouTube, ranging from his own songs to covers of Lady Gaga tunes. A graduate of Berklee College of Music with a degree in Jazz Composition, Hawley released his first CD “Greatest Hits” in 2007. Since then, he and his dog Fargo have traveled throughout the country performing at clubs, colleges and festivals. Along the way, he’s shared the stage with the likes of Dave Mathews, Marc Cohn, Shawn Mullins and Rusted Root. He won the John Lennon Songwriting contest in 2009, and released the album “Steps.” His just-released album “We All Got Problems” is already creating a stir among audiences and critics. Things are moving along, but he still hopes to be a baseball player someday.
Opening for Caleb Hawley will be Elizabeth Rogers, internationally known classical and jazz singer and recording artist, presently on tour from her home in northern Scotland.
