HAWXX are Anna, Hannah, Jessica and Julia - London based but hailing from Greece, Wales, England and Italy.
HAWXX aim to bring diversity and inclusivity to the rock and metal world and reform the standard sausage fest. They write songs that reflect self empowerment, the lies of the diet industry, mental health struggles and the challenges of being a sexy bastard.
Their second EP ‘You're Only As Loud As You Shout Right Now’ is receiving consistent positive response from press and radio, including band features in Metal Hammer, Classic Rock Magaziner, Powerplay, Rock Sound, airplay from Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing, The Metal Hammer Show, Primordial Radio A-list and Planet Rock Radio.
2020 saw them become winners of the PRS Women Make Music Award and give an exclusive performance at the Heavy Music Awards. In 2021 they won Metal to the Masses London and played a packed out tent at Bloodstock Festival, described by Metal Planet as an ‘I was there’ moment. In November 2021 their debut music video for Death of Silence won Best Rock Video at the International Music Video Awards and Hologram won Best Music Video at BFII Sweden.
