Kaz Hawkins – Better Days

mg_6937With an alternative sound to what we’ve grown accustomed to, saturated with indie bands, Kaz Hawkins’ “Because You Love Me” provides a perfect prelude to a break-up, comparisons to Adele are easy made but we may have a true diamond in our presence. ‘Sleep in Peace’ is a perfect soundtrack to an 80’s movie, easy listening, melodic and half progressing into a power ballad before falling short of the mark. Starting like a musicbox “Better Days” provides a welcome pick-me-up with it’s positive vibe before “I Saw a Man” showcases Hawkins’ ability to demonstrate and deliver an open and honest account of events, tipping every note on the scale in the process. Julie Millar, GiggingNI.com
