Los Angeles based guitarist Adam Hawley has already worked as sideman for stars like Jennifer Lopez, Monica, Kenny Latimore, Rick Braun, Dave Koz, Richard Elliot, Michael McDonald, Brian Culbertson and many more.
More important is his solo career, which he started with his aptly titled album Just The Beginning in 2016. His friend and band mate Greg Manning helped him to get a contract with the label Kalimba music. Now Adam returns on the same label with his second album Double Vision in 2018.
He is joined on the new album by an incredible huge cast of musicians such as Dave Koz, Keith McKelley, Darren Rahn (saxophone), Carnell Harrell (organ), Nathaniel Kearney Jr. (key bass), Eric Valentine, Gary Novak (drums), Ramon Yslas (percussion), Jeff Lorber(Rhodes, piano, Clav), David Mann (horns and arrangement), Mel Brown, Julian Vaughn, Ian Martin(bass), Marcus Anderson (sax, flute), Demonte Posey (Rhodes), Carnell Harrell (synth), Greg Manning (keys), Kat Hawley (vocals) and Trevor Neumann (trumpet).
From his new album comes his single Shuffle. Shuffle featuring Darren Rahn develops from a routine piece of music into a uniquely personal style of a guitarist who knows his crafts.
