Jasper Hawkins is a singer-songwriter born and raised in Nelson and now residing in Auckland, New Zealand. Throughout his development as a musician, he eventually became interested in songwriting and released his debut, self-produced EP, tilted ‘Good Heart’ in 2013. In 2017 he recorded his first full-length studio album at Roundhead Studios with internationally acclaimed producer, Greg Haver. In August of that year, his track titled ‘Letter to my Mother’ was picked up by Radio host Jesse Mulligan and aired on Radio NZ. This led to a subsequent invitation to perform live in late September with his 6-piece band. The album was released June 8, 2018.
Jasper takes inspiration from classic artists such as Fleetwood Mac and Paul Simon as well as more recent artists such as John Mayer, infusing folk, pop and rock to create his own unique sound delivered in his own unique songwriting style.
Recently, Jasper has returned from a successful 20-show nationwide ‘Which Way Shall We Go’ tour supporting Ciaran McMeeken. He is now currently working on his second studio album.
