Welcome to the official Alan Hawkshaw youtube account. In a long and distinguished career spanning well over forty years, Alan Hawkshaw has always been at the top of his profession as one of the most in-demand studio musicians, owing to his virtuosic and sensitive technique on a variety of keyboard instruments, but most notably on the piano and Hammond organ. In the latter part of the '60s he developed a technique and sound on this instrument as personal and technically brilliant as the great American Hammond organists such as Jimmy Smith, Johnny Hammond and Richard 'Groove' Holmes. The hallmarks of Alan's Hammond style are the seething energy and sheer excitement he invests his playing with, helped in no small measure by his breathtaking virtuosity. Alan Hawkshaw is the undisputed king of library music! Writing library music has been and continues to be, a large part of Alan's career and throughout the '60s and '70s it provided him with a major outlet for his own compositions.
