ABOUT HAWTHORNE


"Miles ahead of many twice her age, it’s time to take notice of this rising singer-songwriter." 

- Kendra Beltran freelance writer and author @ZO Magazine

On a mission to help others through music during these absurd times with her compassionate and thoughtful approach, Hawthorne Oachs writes about issues that affect teens (and many adults) in staggering numbers. Topics like depression, anxiety, loneliness, past trauma haunts, toxic friendships, perfectionism, self-acceptance and more are covered in her catalog. She also writes about crushes, love, and self-compassion. Hawthorne releases these songs in hopes that it will create more awareness and spark healthy conversation around mental health, while ultimately helping others feel less alone. 


Through her music, Hawthorne offers a community where mental health, psychological safety and connection are at the forefront. She does this by channeling her empathy and compassion while creating a sense of belonging and mattering. Hawthorne's music is a safe place for anyone who feels out of space and time, lost in the darkness, or is simply in search of solidarity - and she does it all while defying the notion that "kids should be seen and not heard."

Hawthorne Oachs is a fifteen-year-old multi-hyphenate musical artist (guitar, piano, voice), digital artist, and award-nominated actress who has spent the last three years of her life writing, producing, and releasing songs while also balancing being a full-time student, playing her first festivals, comic book stores, coffee shops, acting in a few projects, and creating the cover art for her music. 


"Don’t let her age fool you. Hawthorne Oachs will break your heart with the one play of her song. Her newest track is rife with fragile emotion, turning a nice folk-pop song into a tremulous lament. She crafts an earthy, dense and ethereal track that will have you re-aligning how you listen to music. It hits you in waves, rather than as a whole." - mspmag.com

"If you’re looking for music that is both powerful and meaningful, then we highly recommend checking out the music of Hawthorne Oachs. In fact, we listened to her entire catalog and could not find a single song we did not like. Her music is that good." - mixedaltmag.com

"Keep your eye on this one! Hawthorne Oachs has a depth and sophistication in her songwriting that many seasoned musicians would dream of. She is a multifaceted, endlessly talented artist and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for her." - alisonscott.com

Hawthorne Oachs - Ghosties [Live @ Ginkgo 9/22/23]

Connect with Hawthorne Oachs: https://linktr.ee/hawthorneoachs Ghosties (Lyrics) I can’t go anywhere without her breathing down my neck I’m not dreaming, I did so many reality checks I can’t tell anyone they’ll all think I’ve gone insane What did I do to deserve this, who do I get to blame? Did I say something I wasn’t supposed to say? Did I see something I wasn’t supposed to see? I couldn’t stop thinking this is all my fault And then started singing sweetly "Can we be best ghosties? It's so lonely, I'm so lonely I can’t stand to be alone Can we be best ghosties? All my friends have gone somewhere" But when I turned on the light She wasn't there She follows me around unnecessarily close She walks when she should be overtly comatose Her shadow stands up and blocks the light from the tv Maybe I shouldn’t sit in darkness, my eyes must be blurry Did I say something I wasn’t supposed to say? Did I see something I wasn’t supposed to see? I couldn’t stop thinking this is all my fault And then she started singing sweetly "Can we be best ghosties? It's so lonely, I'm so lonely I can’t stand to be alone Can we be best ghosties? All my friends have gone somewhere" But when I turned on the light She wasn't there She looked a lot like me In the night, almost identically She said "I am you and you are me. I am the part of you that you don't want to need" So be my best ghosty It's so lonely, I'm so lonely I can’t stand to be alone Can we be best ghosties? All my friends have gone somewhere But when I turned on the light She wasn't there #hawthorneoachs #ghosties #livemusic © Hawthorne Oachs All Rights Reserved ​⁠
