1. The Hawk

From the recording Beatnik Bound

In cart Not available Out of stock

This is an original, melodic blues/rock n roll tune written by Obie Hughes "Ellington Hawk". The band keeps it simple but the groove is hypnotic with plenty of attitude. Driven by the strong bass line and beatnik drum beat, the song tells the story of a "bad mutha". The kind of man that the ladies can't stay away from but their husbands despise... a sneakin' out the back door slippery fella...This is the first single to be released from the all new, debut, full length album "Beatnik Bound" by Ellington Hawk.
