Welcome to Fiona Joy Hawkins & Little Hartley Music

Fiona Joy Hawkins is an Australian Pianist, Composer and Singer

I believe music is a gift from another world, from ancestors of the past communicating to inspire and give us hope.

Music is a universal language that connects us without prejudice, it speaks to us all equally, yet is received with great variation.

My wish is to open a few more hearts to the power of music.

Now more than ever we need the connection to our past in order to find the pathway to our future.
Fiona Joy Hawkins

Thank you for the concerts. Your music has been a highlight of this quarantine period

“The feel of Fiona’s music brings back to mind the wonderful years of Windham Hill”

NEW ALBUM OUT NOW

Moving Through WorldsMoving Through Worlds, Music for this moment…. A Piano journey that finds joy

Moving Through Worlds is an exploration of ‘now’… water, fire, climate change, survival, and the vanishing of souls into the wind.

CONCERT TIP JAR

I love creating and sharing music. If you have enjoyed a concert or would like to contribute, I’ll use it to keep my piano tuned so I can continue to play online concerts.

Today we attempted to record my new album at the Manning Entertainment Centre in Taree and had to bail out. 😢 We made the decision after three takes. The MEC was too noisy due to high wind noise and metal expansion heating up from a very cold morning (much colder than usual). It was unexpected and wasn't going to work, After long discussions and lots of phone calls to studios from Armidale to Sydney, we decided to go via our hardware store and pick up 8 large acoustic panels and attempt to record on my beautiful piano at home (it's not a recording studio so we are in the lap of the gods again for noise, with dogs and birds being the biggest issue). Producer Peter Stevenson has an amazing mobile recording rig with some amazing mics, so we decided it was worth a go.

The piano tuner came, started the job and within the first ten minutes .... one of the strings broke. 😢 C# (middle C). My handmade Australian Stuart and Sons piano is one of the only brands in the world that uses stainless steel strings so the new ones have to come from Tumut (a 10 hour drive away). After consulting with Wayne Stuart (piano maker), we are attempting to use a regular string and see if we can get it to hold. The boys are working late and I'm holding my breath. The tuner has had to cancel everything tomorrow and I now have to record the whole album in 2 days instead of three (assuming nothing else goes wrong)

We also lost the opportunity for NBN Channel 9 News team to do a story (they were coming to the MEC at 2pm) and also a local newspaper who were sending a journalist and a photographer. Where I live is outside their area, so that was cancelled. 😢

I'm feeling hopeful that tomorrow will work, it all depends on the how the string replacement and tuning goes. Tomorrow I record everything with C#, as the tuner has cancelled his whole day just to be here (it won't hold tune without his help). Luckily I have enough tracks that don't use c# to record on Wed when we don't have a piano tuner here.

We just have to roll with the punches and hope this works out.

My next options will be to push the recording back a week, that requires a lot of people's schedules to change, or to travel to a studio. Fingers crossed.

All I can share for now are my set list notes. 🎶 Will keep you posted.

Wow ! So sorry to hear, Thinking a good decision to try your Stuart and Sons piano, acoustic tiles were a good idea to help control your environment, sorry about your " C" string breakage, can sympathize on that one , years ago I broke my " G" String right in front of a live audience....keep us posted.

All the best

The result is going to be beautiful and at the end it will be all that matters. Sending positive energy your way! I am listening to Blue Dream right now! 🌻

❤️❤️❤️

Have been caught with outside wind noise at live venue recordings before. I understand the hassle and decision to bail.

Sending good vibes

God always with you and help you my dear sister

Thought for the day: If music held more answers, I would be a smarter person, but it is limited, as we all are. It does however reach all people, of all ethnicities and persuasions and can speak to us all equally. It can hold hope, give comfort and speak of all things, telling the stories of our lives. If you listen, you can hear so much more than just the sum of the notes.

A.I. loses this message completely and will dumb us down and reduce us to binary coded art that has no true meaning and says nothing.

Calling Facebook algorithm? Please be nice and let my followers actually see my posts.... 🙏 Does anyone else have this problem? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Absolutely. My feed is spammed with ads, and most of my actual friends posts do not come up.

Achieving world peace is easier to understand than fb algorithms!

Everyone does. I see your posts but do not always respond.

Yes. This place is full of it self. Instagram is more coherent for promotional efforts. But just barely.

All the time. FB want $$$ to allow your followers to see your posts. It’s just a scam. Like Spotify.
