His first venture into a recording studio resulted in a song called "Patois" which was produced by John Mills. The song did not do very well, but it did give him the encouragement to continue in his pursuit of a place among the top toasters in the island. After being introduced by a friend to Browne, Hawkeye recorded "Advertise Your Brand", but it was the 1997 effort "Arrest Mi Officer" for Browne which flung the doors open for him. He later followed up with "Beg Fi Him", "Ooh Ah Ah", "Man a Bad Man" and "More". The public embraced him, and Hawkeye was on his way. Since joining the In the Streets label, he has scored some of his more prolific hits.
"Reality Thing", the UK hit "Go Rachel", "Just Like We", "You Nuh Beg" and "Money Making Guy" have been flowing like fine wine. Hawkeye is currently working on his debut album for Greensleeves Records, "Money Making Guy", which he anticipates should be out before the end of 2000. 2: Hawkeye (Modern Psychedelic Rock) A mix of lo-fi hi-fi, happiness, sadness, playfulness, revolution, dissolusion, candy pop, garage rock, northern soul, psychedelic, brit pop, pre-post punk, moth fuck explosion.
