Band Info

Born into a musical family (his father is the singer Chip Hawkes, formerly with the 1960s band The Tremeloes), Chesney Hawkes’ own career began at 19, when he appeared as the title character in the film Buddy's Song alongside Roger Daltrey. In March 1991, he released his biggest single "The One And Only," from the film's soundtrack. Written By Nik Kershaw, the song was later featured in the opening credits of Doc Hollywood (1991), starring Michael J. Fox. The single spent five weeks at Number 1. It has become part of the soundtrack of a generation, and still features on radio playlists, compilations and in DJ sets everywhere.

Subsequent singles also charted, including What's Wrong With This Picture? , his 2002 collaboration with Adam Schlessinger of Fountains of Wayne, Stay Away Baby Jane and his most recent release Another Fine Mess in 2006, which was a collaboration with Nik Kershaw and saw the pairing return to the charts, 15 years after their first success.

Chesney's number 1 love and main priority is songwriting and producing, so if he's not performing he's in the studio working on songs for himself and others. He also organizes an annual songwriting retreat in Iceland called Songfusion.

This is a chance to spend an evening with Chesney Hawkes the songwriter, as he leads you through his musical journey, performing his own songs, his collaborations with other artists and a few of his personal favourites.
