My name is Kim Hawes
Kim Hawes is a force of nature. Uncompromising, unrelenting and unforgettable.
Kim has come a long way from her early days of rolling posters, counting out pin badges and selling merchandise fo the likes of Elvis Costello & The Attractions, Rush & Black Sabbath.
Kim worked with some of the heavyweights of Rock'N'Roll and learned a lot of her trade on the road with Motorhead. Kim not only worked in merchandising, she was a Tour Accountant, a Tour Manager and latterly a Crisis Manager.
In 2019 Kim was recognised for her achievements by the University of Central Lancashire, as an Honorary Fellow:
“Pioneer for Women” for her work in the Music Industry.
Kim now lectures at Colleges & Universities, appears at Music Industry Conferences all around the world and mentors the new generation of Rock'N'Roll misfits hoping to break into the Music Industry.
In 2021 Kim secured a publishing deal with Sandstone Press to write her memoirs which is due to hit shelves in Spring 2023 and we can guarantee you'll have never read anything like this!
