Kaz Hawkins

Singer Songwriter | Mental Health Activist

A singer, songwriter, storyteller and mental health activist who uses music to highlight issues like abuse, addiction, mental health awareness, domestic violence and more. I also believe music can be used as a toll for recovery.


1. What’s your biggest achievement / Something you’re proud of yourself for?

“Staying alive! Domestic violence, drugs and depression nearly killed me so I am very grateful of everyday I am alive. I’m proud of my fight because many don’t make it out the other side and I feel I carry their memories with me always. Being proud of myself is something that took most of my life to achieve so I make sure I remind myself everyday of my fight. As women we are so hard on ourselves so it’s a great thing to be able to say to myself “you’re not doing too bad Kaz.”

2. What’s your biggest fear / something that holds you back?

 I recently revealed publicly that I am in the throws of Peri Menopause and because I lost all my hair I had been wearing wigs for a year because I was so afraid of what people thought. I realised that this very fear was holding back who I was so I spoke with my management and they supported me just revealing who I was. The gig was probably the best one of my life because I felt so free. All that fear had forced me to hide behind my wigs and it was empowering taking back control. I’m now allowing my mind to get used to how my body is changing and embracing it because it was holding me back for no reason. My hormones don’t make me, I make me.

3. What’s your biggest contribution / Something you like to share?

My music is my legacy and I’m very proud that my songs Lipstick & Cocaine and Surviving have helped so many people during hard times. I still get emotional when I read messages from fans telling me they found my songs when they needed them most. I don’t think I will ever get used to that, it is truly humbling. 


“1. I am a marvel movie fan. 2. I legally changed my name to Hawkins in memory of Etta James who’s real name is Jamesetta Hawkins. 3. I can play the Irish Bodhran drum.”

Thank you for being you!
