New RK artist THE HAWK feat. LITTLE HANNAH COLLINSPublished on Venerdì, 22 Gennaio 2010
Record Kicks is pleased to welcome new group THE HAWK feat. LITTLE HANNAH COLLINS, and to announce the upcoming release of their first single "Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover", which is also the first single to be extracted from the forthcoming MO' RECORDKICKS compilation. The man behind The Hawk is Scott Milson, (bass player of critically acclaimed UK funk band on Big Boss Man on Blow Up Records), who already released various tracks under this name, winning over numerous fans and securing airplay from DJs such as Rob Da Bank (BBC 1) and Steve Lamacq (BBC 1).
For this new project Scott teams up with former player/vocalist for The Heavy Hannah Collins to create "a slice of contemporary northern soul". Much in advance of its release, "Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover" has already gained the support of Craig Charles (BBC 6) and Francesco Adinolfi (Rai 2), and will be available for purchase on digital download and 45 starting February 22nd, with "If You Wanna Be My Man" by Italian Hammond beat kings THE LINK QUARTET featuring new sister funk queen from the UK GIZELLE SMITH on the B side. Wasting no time at all since the realization of this first track, The Hawk is already back in the studio to record two other songs, soon expected out on RK, so keep an eye out for this and other tracks by this new outfit!
"Soul with a twist and a laidback sixties feeling. Speed it up a little and you´ll hit the dancefloor with it!" – Oliver Korthals (Mojo Club)
“Simply superb! Well impressed with what The Hawk is up to just now and want to hear MORE! Will be playing this to death on the show!" - Craig Charles (Funk And Soul Show BBC 6Music)
“A slice of classic contemporary northern soul - one for the box!” – Eddie Piller (Acid Jazz)
