ATLANTA, GA – Singer-songwriter Matthew Hawk releases his latest single, Running on Empty, to all platforms and various radio formats. Knowing all too well the emptiness of working the grind on Hollywood’s biggest films, suffering through three open heart surgeries on his newborn son, and dealing with the pandemic, Running on Empty is a desperate cry for us to be filled with something greater. Debuting at #5 in the Christian Top Twenty via PlayMPE charts, Running on Empty is off to a great start.
Hawk is nominated for three Native American Music Awards (winners are announced November 2022.)
Hawk appeared playing guitar and/or singing on films such as Pitch Perfect 3, The Change Up, Boy Erased, What to Expect When You're Expecting, Come Sunday, A Question of Faith, and the television shows, The Vampire Diaries, The Baker and the Beauty, American Soul, and Atlanta Live.
Merry Christmas, Hawk’s seasonal EP, released November of 2021, with his single, The Greatest Gift, debuting #6 on the Top Christian 20 PlayMPE national charts.
His music video, Coming Home, won an award at the Emerald Coast Film Festival.
Matthew Hawk is working on a new album to be released in Fall of 2022. Reminiscent of the 1990s, the album is an eclectic mix of inspirational pop, rock, alternative, Americana, and modern acoustic led singer-songwriter ballads. “We’ve been through a lot the last few years. I hope to offer hope and love to a decaying world through these songs,” says Hawk.
Outside of music, Hawk worked in Hollywood as a double and stand-in for famous actors Adam Sandler, Ed Helms, Jon Hamm, Mel Gibson, Jake Johnson, Dermott Mulroney, Jason Bateman, Sam Claflin, Theo James, and many others, including three films in the Hunger Games Trilogy and two films in the Divergent Series. He learned to fly the actual Gemini 8 from NASA for the film, First Man.
A humble man with a heart of gold, Hawk also works with families of critically and terminally ill children at the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities.
