Hawkins hit the local music scene in May ’19. This versatile rock band puts on an amazing live show- that spans 6 decades of music with an exuberance that transforms any venue into a high energy house party!
It began as a musical passion for founders Jaime Ileana and Steven Riccio. Ileana’s alluring voice and Riccio’s meticulous orchestration seamlessly birthed the distinctive sound of Horriblyright.
Horriblyright produced their debut album, Conjure the Cure. Their first single, “Human,” perfectly showcases the dynamic potential of Horriblyright. Its vulnerable interlude and vein bursting conclusion enthralls every listener. In their sophomore single, “Affliction,” they strip down to their origin in a heartsick acoustic arrangement. It blossoms into a powerful ballad, overflowing with the stages of grief.
Their passion did not end with sound. A dream from Ileana’s youth was to enhance the realms of fashion with her distinctive style. She achieved her dream by bringing her vision to Riccio, creating the fashion line with a sound, Horriblyright.
