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 Appalachian WV. Outside of regular engagements through markets in WV, OH, IN, KY, VA, PA, DC, and select tours through the Northeast, Little Lawnmowers will be expanding into TX, CO, TN, and NC markets throughout the first half of 2020. Alongside Little Lawnmowers' debut EP Night Drive, upcoming releases include a jazzy trio cover of Nick Drake's Road early 2020.
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.
