Kirsty Hawkshaw (born 26 October 1969, London) is a British female dance/electronica/house musician and songwriter who is known for her signature vocals. Hawkshaw is the daughter of the British production music/film music composer and disco record producer Alan Hawkshaw. Her father and her love for dance music inspired Hawkshaw to pursue a career in music. At a rave event in 1991 she was noticed by producers Ian Munro, Kevin Dobbs and Nigel Walton, who at the time were known as A.S.K. It was through this meeting that they would form a dance act called Opus III. Their first single, "It's A Fine Day" from their debut album Mind Fruit was an international success and Top 10 hit on UK Singles Chart, and hit #1 on Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in 1992.

An inverted sample of Hawkshaw's singing from this track was used in the Orbital track "Halcyon + On + On," the music video for which featured Hawkshaw. Opus III also had another US #1 hit on the same chart in 1994 with "When You Made The Mountain" from their second and last album Guru Mother. After the group broke up in 1994, Hawkshaw pursued a solo career and since then has been in demand by other acts in the dance, house, Eurodance, trance, and electronica community, ranging from Tiësto to Delerium. Perhaps some of her more notable EDM contributions have been to albums such as BT's "Movement in Still Life" and Hybrid's albums "Morning Sci-Fi" and "I Choose Noise". Read more on Last.fm.
