Garrison Hawk (also known as “Hawkman,” born October 23, 1978) is a Jamaican singer and dancehall artist. He is best known for his work on Tricky’s 2001 album blowback. Tricky praised the collaboration, telling Billboard magazine, “Hawk is my partner, musically. It's almost like my career is changing, and I am finding all the right people to work with.” Born in Mandeville, Jamaica, Hawk was a teenager when he moved with his family to the Bronx, New York, where he cultivated a distinctive singing and rapping style.

He started performing with local sound systems, and eventually shared a stage with Shabba Ranks and Super Cat on an East Coast tour in the late '90s. After releasing a series of underground singles—including “3 the Yard Way,” with DJ Excel, and “Addicted” (the flip side to “An It Don’t Stop” by Smoothe da Hustler)—he received significant airplay on New York’s Hot 97 radio station and broke through on several club charts in Europe. In 1999, he was approached by producers Roger Sanchez and Armand Van Helden to perform on some club mixes for the AV8 label. In 2008, Hawk was a featured artist in Coca-Cola's worldwide Coke Rewards campaign. At the time, he was signed to Warner Music in the UK, and released several singles, including "Running Red" and "Sweet Music," which reached #11 on the UK pop charts.

Hawk has appeared on albums by Sly and Robbie (2004’s Version Born) and producer Bill Laswell’s Method of Defiance (2010’s Jahbulon). His solo debut Survive, featuring Sly & Robbie and produced by Bill Laswell , was released on M.O.D. Technologies in April 2012. Read more on Last.fm.
