Musician Christopher Hawley is also a talented surfer and guitarist. The new video for his single, "9 Tattoos," is rooted in having fun, featuring life on the Venice Boardwalk. Hawley's attempts to make infectious, feel-good and positive pop music are heartfelt and real. Hawley's influences are indicative of Bob Marley, Johnny Cash, Duane Allman, among others.
"9 Tattoos" is featured on his fifth album, Rise and Shine, featuring Hawley's knack for his fun songwriting and blend of percussion, acoustic guitar, piano, and vocals. Hawley also fronts The Christopher Hawley Rollers which are a staple among local fans in Los Angeles, to other various venues throughout the country.
Hawley performs the second Wednesday of every month at Prince O Whales in Playa del Rey, California, and the second Saturday of every month at Mar Vista in Mar Vista, California.
Hawley, in an exclusive quote to AXS, says that the music video for his new single "captures the spirit of Venice Beach on a beautiful spring day in May. It's amazing what you can find when you walk down to the boardwalk. "9 Tattoos" inspired us to be completely spontaneous with the shoot, letting the unfold as the warm weather bought out some uniquely Venice moments."
