  • The Trey Hawkins Band plays Round 1 of the Showcase Thursday at Stickyz.

Hailing from tiny Hamburg, Trey Hawkins got his musical start early. He was barely out of toddler territory when he sang a rendition of the Willie 'n' Waylon classic "Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be Cowboys" at his grandmother's kitchen table.

He was hooked after that, influenced by the sounds coming out of his father's home stereo. He wrote his first song at 14, and from then on he was singing and songwriting. He performs solo and with the Trey Hawkins Band (Aaron Murphy, Mark Bolin and the Breedloves Andrew and Jonathan), and has created a body of work informed by country and Southern rock of classic and more recent vintage and inspired by his small-town upbringing.

Exhibit A: The contemplative "Purple Skies and Dragonflies," which finds Hawkins examining how our earliest experiences shape us.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
