I began composing music at a young age and have played a variety of different instruments throughout my life, though I actively focus on a few specific areas; throughout high school, I focused on drums & percussion in the jazz tradition–specifically jazz fusion and bop styles. As a classically trained vocalist, I sang in the Reed College Collegium (a small selective choir) throughout my college career.
I currently produce hip-hop and electronic music and occasionally DJ live events. My musical work can be found on my SoundCloud, Mixcloud, and on joelhawkins.info.
Below are select works that I believe best represent my current musical interests and influences.
