Fiona is a pianist/singer and composer who fuses the genres of Celtic/New Age with World influences and Jazz rhythms. 2012 saw the release of LIVE at the Q and Sensual Journeys and mid 2013 600 Years in a Moment will be officially available. Fiona is also looking forward to some Australian concert dates and another tour of the US in September spurred on by her IMA (Inedpendent Music Awards) nominations in three categories including Best Live Performance.
"One of the brightest lights in the contemporary instrumental genre Fiona Joy Hawkins is poised to move into actual stardom and we have only to watch to see it happen” Will Ackerman (Founder Windham Hill Records).
The family home was filled with music."My father played Jesus in the Tamworth Musical Society production of Jesus Christ Superstar, Andrew Lloyd Webber's music was part of our lives." Classically trained as a pianist, Fiona's music is thematic and melodic. With a keen eye on film she has always been interested in creating music that evokes images and emotions and tells a story. Fiona first began playing and writing music as a child and cites Ravel's Bolero as an early influence. "I played it over and over and deconstructed every part, I absolutely loved it," said Fiona. Other musical influences include: George Winston, Prokofiev and Mendelssohn.
An Australian ARIA Finalist in 2009 and MusicOZ Winner in 2008, Fiona has been a finalist in over 43 Indie Artist Awards across 9 countries. Her earlier album, BLUE DREAM (ABC Music), received the highest ever ranking in the history of the New Age Reporter International Radio Charts, debuting at #1 and then winning the ZMR Album of the Year, Best Piano Album and Best Contemporary Instrumental Album.
“Fiona’s Blue Dream album was the most ambitious project of my entire career and resulted in one of the most remarkable collaborations this genre has ever known. Blue Dream is unique and I’m as proud of it (and Fiona) as anything I’ve ever worked on in my 35 year career of Grammy Awards and gold /platinum records.” Will Ackerman (Founder Windham Hill Records)
“Blue Dreamrepresents the very best of this music genre and follows in the great tradition of artists such as George Winston. This beautifully crafted album has already been hailed in the US as a work of pure genius”. ABC Music Australia
“Hawkins enters the realm of masterfull” Smoothjazz FM
Fiona’s Two Grand I’m yours tour with singer/ songwriter Trysette sees these two Aussie favourites playing only on Grand Pianos and combining genres to create at match made in melodic heaven where notes dance across the stage like bubbles of joy.
“The performance enthralled the audience, left them speechless,the final number brought to a close a night of superb music”…The Brisbane Jazz Club “It was brilliant”…Glasshouse Port Macquarie Australia.
In addition to composing Fiona is also a prolific painter who has been exhibiting since 1997. Fiona incorporates original manuscripts of her music on the canvas to create bold colourful mixed media abstracts so you can hear and see her music.
"The idea of synchronicity has always intrigued me, colours, ideas and emotions all have corresponding sounds," said Fiona. "I believe in the power of music as a source of inspiration and a way of reaching people, and I can transfer a musical quality through my art to the canvas."
Number four of nine children, Trysette is a classically trained pianist, singer and songwriter from the north coast of New South Wales, Australia.
A broken heart at 19 inspired her first song. So cathartic was the process Trysette quickly forgot all her woes and was grateful for the source of inspiration. Songwriting was now the new love.
Trysette’s voice is warm and a little husky with strength and depth. Though unique and distinctive, she is often likened by her fans to the voices of Taylor Swift, Jewel, Emmylou Harris and Sara McLachlan. Trysette has attitude, is intuitively melodic and intelligently sensual. The lady has something to say.
"Trysette immediately finds a home in listeners’ hearts and minds"...... James McQuiston, Editor, NeuFutur Magazine.
After signing her first EP "Take A Risk" to Warner Chappell Music, Trysette went on to release three independent albums, "French Kiss", "Here On In" and "Le Cafe Ancien". Le Cafe Ancien was recorded in 2010 in the UK and France by producer and artist Chris Corney .
Touring internationally as a solo artist, Trysette has been invited as a guest to share the stage with some prestigious names including Bob Malone (John Fogerty), Toni Childs and Australia's own Deborah Conway and the Waifs.

JM believes in 'One Disease - One Solution'. No matter what you name a particular disease, JM believes it is usually one and the same cause: 'Toxicity and/or Deficiency'. By removing the incoming toxicity (ie heavily processed food, cigarettes, alcohol, chemicals, refined fats/sugars) and replacing any nutrient deficiencies (through the finest natural liquid nutrition) then the vast majority of all common aliments will either improve or potentially be 'cured'.
