When Nomad needed a keyboard player for the Babyface Japan tour, Erksine Hawkins stuck out of the crowd. His professionalism and stacked resume got him a gig with Nomad and Babyface, but Erskine's list of credentials rolls on. He's a graduate of the prestigious music program at the University of North Texas. He's the founder and CEO of Key Element Entertainment. He's worked with artists such as Rihanna, Eminem, Kenneth "BabyFace" Edmonds, David Foster, Jessie J, Kirk Whalum, B.W.B, Tamela Mann, and Eric Benet. He has also charted, scored and arranged music for such artists as Justin Timberlake and Nicki Minaj and several award shows such as the American Music Awards, TV Land Awards, Soul Train Awards, and BET Music Awards. And he's even got charisma!
