Biografia

Ted Hawkins (October 28, 1936 – January 1, 1995) was an American singer-songwriter. He was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, United States.

Hawkins was an enigmatic figure through most of his career; he split his time between his adopted hometown of Venice Beach, California where he was a mostly anonymous street performer, and Europe, where he and his songs were better known and well received in clubs and small concert halls.

Hawkins lived a difficult early life, ending up at a reform school by age 12, and drifting, hitching, and stealing his way across the country for the next dozen years, earning several stays in prison including a three-year stint for stealing a leather jacket as a teenager. Along the way, he picked up a love of music and a talent for the guitar. “I was sent to a school for bad boys called Oakley Training School in 1949”, he wrote in a brief piece of autobiography . “There I developed my voice by singing with a group that the superintendent’s wife had got together”. After reform school, he ended up in the state penitentiary and was released at 19. “Then I heard a singer whose name was Sam Cooke. His voice did something to me.” For the next ten years or so he drifted in and out of trouble around the country, living in Chicago, Buffalo, Philadelphia, and Newark. In the middle of the mid 1960s folk music boom Hawkins set out for California to try for a professional singing career.

    This man had such an incredibly soulful voice! To me Ted sounds a lot like Otis Redding and sometimes a little like Bob Seger. I discovered Ted Hawkins through his cover of "Green Green Grass of Home," and "Corrina, Corrina" from the soundtrack of the 1994 movie of the same name made me a fan.
