I've had the honor to work with some wonderfully creative storytellers, videographers, and sound technicians. I love the art form of bringing audio to life by pairing it with the visual realm while telling a compelling story. Enjoy this collection I've put together. You can find more videos on my YouTube channel. 


Experience The Magic In Person!

Music moves me to my core. It inspires me, takes me to the deepest parts of myself, picks me up when I'm down, and moves me on an emotional level that nothing else can. It is the voice of my spirit, my essence, my soul. What really lights me up is being fully alive and engaged in the present moment taking risks and following my intuition for the sake of love and joy and beauty. It's a spiritual experience. This is what playing music is for me and what you can expect to experience when you come to one of my shows. I hope to share this experience with you someday soon.

XS10 magazine amg entertainment network adam ant interview with dechen hawk times ten magazine

Interview with Dechen Hawk in XS10 Magazine! 

I had a great time talking with David R. Navarro over at Times Ten Magazine. They had fun and thoughtful questions that really made me think about my answers. I'm proud of this interview and I'd be honored if you'd take the time to read it.

Click the link below to read the full interview.



Like Stevie Wonder and Jeff Buckley thrown in a blender, Indie Soul Balladeer Dechen Hawk creates music that ranges from beautiful ballads to gritty throwback funk and soul. He believes conscious music has the power to heal and transform humanity for the better. Hawk's call pierces the state of unawareness and asks you to speak the truth. 

Though musical his whole life, it wasn’t until the death of his father when he was 14, and the search for a way to express that loss, that Hawk found his calling as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. His desire to create and express the joy and fragility of life has kept him busy for the past 25 years performing locally and internationally. 

His work creates community by bringing people together from all walks of life to do something they all have in common and enjoy.
