Cale Hawkins creates music from a small, windowless room in Brooklyn. Hailing from Bemus Point, NY (population: 364), Hawkins has lived as a nomadic musician since 2012, touring, writing, and producing internationally with a wide array of artists and groups. His genre is best described as desperation.

Hawkins is a regular collaborator and contributor to the original music of Arthur Moon, Ben Talmi, RaveenaElisa, Evan Nachimson, Stevie Wolf, and several other Brooklyn-based artists. Past credits include work with Quincy Jones, Nate Ruess, Wyclef Jean, Bilal, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Gabriel Garzón-Montano, Nikki Yanofsky, Carrie Manolakos, and KAMAU.

Hawkins producers, engineers, and plays all the instruments (except strings) on his music.
