To begin with, Hawkins grew up a small village in the East of England, and studied music at a West Yorkshire high school. Together with the brother, they formed the band called The Commander.

In 2002, The Hawkins brothers began playing in clubs and pubs with their band The Darkness, and were signed to the Atlantic Records label. Their first album “Permission To Land” (2003) went directly to the top of British charts, selling nearly 1.5 million copies in the UK, the success of which led the group to have long tours in Europe. In 2004, the group won three BRIT Awards in the categories of the Best Band, the Best Rock Band and the Best album, and two Kerrang! awards for the Best Live Performance and the Best British Group. The single released from the album “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” became a hit in England, as well as their Christmas song “Christmas Time” (Do not Let the Bells End).

In 2005, before the release of the second album of “One Way Ticket to Hell … And Back”, Hawkins sold a copy of the album for £350. “One Way Ticket” the first single from the new album, took eighth place on the UK charts – the album was produced by Roy Thomas Baker, the producer of the Queen group among others. The first sales in the UK showed that the album did not sell as well as hoped, but the group still toured in Europe, the UK, the US, Australia and Japan. In 2006, Hawkins left the group, initially for drug and alcohol addiction problems, but later Hawkins revealed that he was tired of the routine of the group, and that he did not understand how a group like The Rolling Stones could handle it.

In 2005 after a detoxification, Hawkins created his solo project, called British Whale, the first single entitled “This Town is not Big Enough for Both of Us”, reached sixth place on the UK charts. In 2007, Hawkins competed to represent England in the Eurovision Song Contest, performing a duet with singer Beverlei Brown, but failed to impress the judges sufficiently.

Since 2011, he has been a member of the band The Darkness, and with the band, Justin has released two albums “Hot Cakes” (2012) and “Last of Our Kind” (2015).

Finally, in the personal life of Justin Hawkins, he is married to Sue Whitehouse.
