Harlem’s Caleb Hawley is an American soul singer, songwriter and performer. Like savvy throwback crooners Mayer Hawthorne and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Hawley channels early Stevie Wonder and other Motown sounds into a complete, magnetic package. Raised in Minneapolis by a family of preachers and therapists, Hawley’s family fueled his on-stage charisma and perceptive, witty lyrics. Hawley's grandfather hooked him on an early Ray Charles record, leading him into the fertile soul music of the sixties and seventies. 2014 marks the release of a pair of EPs: Side 1 and Side 2. Hawley says "They are a bit different stylistically, but each share my own voice artistically and literally." Side 1 is a time capsule from the 60's, employing a full string section from the NY Philharmonic to capture the authentic R&B sounds of the sixties and seventies. Side 2 brings us to the present with beefier beats and more modern production. Hawley's vocal swagger, his old Alabama garage found Harmony electric guitar and live rhythm section tie both EP's together effortlessly.
