Sophie B. Hawkins
A Concert In Support of Growing Love Community Garden
Sophie B. Hawkins is a Grammy nominated, American singer-songwriter. Hawkins’s first two albums, Tongues and Tails and Whaler were certified Gold and earned her a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist and six New York Music Awards. Her singles, “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” and “Right Beside You” spent months in the top ten on the Billboard singles chart in the USA and in Europe.
The January 2019 issue of Elle Magazine ranked “Damn” as one of the Top Love Songs of All Time. “As I Lay Me Down” and “Lose Your Way” from Hawkins third album, Timbre, were featured on the TV show Dawson’s Creek. With nine albums to her credit, her music has been featured in films (40 Days and 40 Nights, Bounce, New Years Eve, Mrs. Winterbourne, Now and Then and The Associate) and television shows (The Blacklist, Party of Five and Northern Lights). Throughout her career, Hawkins has performed live with Eric Clapton, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Lou Reed, Chris Isaak, Kristen Chenoweth, Melissa Etheridge and Willie Nelson.
She starred as Janis Joplin in the play Room 105, a performance critics praised and wrote “it was a part she was born to play.” Hawkins authored her own play with original music and is working on its production. She is currently in recording sessions and promotional events in Germany including filming the syndicated music and talk show Night Grooves at the historic Schminke House in Löbau. Hawkins most recent New York shows sold out and she is celebrated on the New York club scene as her recent guest appearance with Jesse’s Girl at Le Poisson Rouge proved.
Her May 10, 2019 performance at the Landmark will benefit Growing Love Community Gardens. In 2018, GLCG repurposed land within the Manorhaven Perserve for community farming and connects Port Washington neighbors of diverse backgrounds to healthy food, nature and each other. Hawkins has been a steadfast supporter of environmental protection and restoration throughout her life and career and a dedicated member of her Brooklyn community.
