Caleb Hawley is a Harlem based, Minneapolis-raised singer, songwriter, and producer who has been shoveling Gobstoppers into ears for the past decade. Combining catchy melodies with dark and satirical lyrics, one has to be careful not to slip while dancing in a puddle of their own tears. Popdust proclaims “Caleb Hawley is the pop star pop music has done nothing to deserve, but desperately needs. The production of every song is attention grabbing, bringing the listener on a rollercoaster of 80's vibes and surprising emotional layers.”
There was a time when Caleb hated being mistaken as his mother when answering the land-line, but it worked out for him in the end, setting him apart with his high, androgynous vocals. Hawley’s music is elevated by stellar, out-of-the-box live performances (he’s played over a thousand), backed by a slew of reviews noting his onstage charisma. He forms authentic connections with an air of openness, soulful singalongs and untethered guitar work drawing comparisons from Prince to Robin Williams.
He released his fifth full-length album this spring, entitled “Sad People”. Most of it was written & produced in his 5x10 storage-unit-turned-studio, where he works alongside a black market DVD burning entrepreneur named Fred.
