Kaz Hawkins (January 21, 1973) is a Northern Irish blues, folk and soul singer, songwriter signed to Dixiefrog Records in Paris, France.
Hawkins was born and grew up in Belfast but now lives in France. She enjoyed singing at church, and was influenced by her grandmother singing at home. In her youth, she auditioned for the television show Opportunity Knocks where the musical director told her grandmother to let her listen to Etta James. Her love affair of soul music began here.
Hawkins sang in cover bands for 20 years before she began creating original material.
She has released four studio albums, two EPs (no longer available), one live album (digital only). She has also released a compilation album exclusively on vinyl  Upon signing with Dixiefrog Records, an anthology of her back catalogue called 'My Life And I' was released. A seventeen track CD and double vinyl was released in 2022. A new album is due for release in Spring 2023.

The album included one of the original Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, David Hood and musicians Clayton Ivey and Will McFarlane supporting a line up of international artists covering songs recorded in Alabama.
In April 2022, Hawkins was given the honourable title of Godmother of the oldest blues festival in France. Cahors Blues Festival asked her permission in front of gathered press at the launch of the 40th anniversary of the festival.
