Kalai King
In 2000 Kalai moved from his home state of Delaware to Los Angeles to write sketch comedy for Nickelodeon while pursuing his music career. One day, while humming a Gram Parsons tune, he bumped into a co-worker who recognized the song. That co-worker was Polly Parsons – daughter of Gram himself. Polly invited Kalai to "The Sweethearts of the Rodeo", a monthly Americana club that was the epicenter of the California Roots Rock scene. He soon became a fixture, playing with "The Sin City All Star Band" along side such guests as Lucinda Williams, Dwight Yoakam, Tim Easton, Shooter Jennings and Michelle Shocked.
In 2001, Kalai opened shows for Robert Earl Keen, Junior Brown, Chris Whitley and Jim Lauderdale at Hollywood's Roxy Theatre. The Alt-Country band he assembled for these shows morphed into Hawkeye. Their performance of his song "Home" shot to 12 on the Americana Charts and they became the best drawing band at Hollywood's famed Hotel Café. Their residency "Third Friday's with Hawkeye" found the band in elite company with the likes of Sara Bareilles, Joe Purdy, Garrison Starr, Anne McCue, Alexi Murdoch, Eastmountainsouth, Gary Jules and members of The Wallflowers and Pete Yorn's band.
