HAWKSLEY WORKMAN Returns For Intimate Run Of Shows with New Single Due in September

4 min read

Hawksley Workman is a two-time JUNO Award-winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. A staple of the Canadian music and arts scene for over 20 years, Workman boasts a catalogue of 16 releases, showcasing his now signature blend of anthemic folk and show-stopping vocals.  Hawksley’s touring career has seen him play over a thousand shows worldwide. He’s headlined prestigious venues like Massey Hall in Toronto and The Olympia in Paris, and opened for heroes Morrissey, David Bowie, and The Cure.  

As a producer, his fingerprints grace releases by JUNO and Polaris Prize nominees and winners like Tegan and Sara, Sarah Slean, Serena Ryder, Hey Rosetta! and Great Big Sea. He’s also penned melodies with a myriad of artists, from Oscar award winning Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, Inception) to the late French rock icon Johnny Hallyday.  

Following a recent move to Montreal, Hawksley wrote and recorded his 17th album, set for release in March 2019. Produced by The Dears creative genius Murray Lightburn, the record will reveal Hawksley’s hooky yet innovative melodic approach, authentic songwriting, and good old-fashioned unedited musicianship.   

Hawksley Workman is many things to many people in many places, but primarily, he’s a student of the human psyche; an artist in the purest sense of the word, constantly finding fresh and interesting ways to frame and share the world – the people we are and the things we encounter. It’s a virtually bottomless well of ideas for a man with virtually endless imagination and creative outlets. 

Hawksley Workman will return to Australia for shows in October and November, preceded by a new single, set for release on September 28 – stay tuned for more!
