LONG DESCRIPTION/BIO:
The accumulation of original music influenced by American roots, early jazz/blues, and world grooves, Little Lawnmowers delivers an emotional musical experience ranging from the ambient to intense. Employing diverse musical traditions of fingerstyle guitar, a suitcase drum/auxiliary percussion, and original lyrics, songs of stories of life, death, love, the bizarre, and a life on the road are conveyed through Hawkins' unique performance style and the thumping of the suitcase-stomp drum.

Jonathan Hawkins, under the stage name Little Lawnmowers, is a guitarist, singer-songwriter, composer/arranger, and producer based in the DCM area of College Park. . Alongside Little Lawnmowers' debut EP Night Drive, releases include a jazzy trio cover of Nick Drake's Road.  Outside of Little Lawnmowers, Jonathan has toured internationally as a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist with Broadway productions, and as a member of bands ranging from Electronic/EDM to traditional/old-time and jazz. When not on the road, Hawkins stays busy arranging and composing for commission, theatrical productions, and studio albums.
