The years since dropping his debut album has been a bit of a rocket ride for award-winning R&B/Jazz guitarist Adam Hawley. Several of his radio singles have gone to No. 1 nationally and he deftly avoided the sophomore slump when his 2nd outing further established him as a centerstage solo artist. 

Escape is Hawley's third album and first for his new record label, MBF Entertainment. Hawley produced and wrote eight of the record's ten tunes featuring collaborations with a constellation of Smooth/Contemporary Jazz luminaries including Rick Braun, Najee, Michael Lington, Jeff Ryan, Marcus Anderson and Greg Manning.

Check out the latest single, Tokyo Groove.

"When I wrote Escape it really took me away to another, special place. The groove, the vibe...it just transported me to a place of chill and Zen. That became the theme that runs on through the entire record," said Hawley, a Portland, Oregon native who has resided in the Los Angeles area since earning a Doctorate of Musical Arts.

Hawley has accompanied and toured extensively with Jennifer Lopez, Dave Koz, Kirk Whalum, Brian Culbertson, Gerald Albright, Natalie Cole, and "American Idol." He passes his knowledge along to students around Los Angeles at Musician's Institute, Chaffey College and Saddleback College.
