A staple of the Canadian music and arts scene for over 20 years, Hawksley Workman boasts a catalogue of 16 releases, showcasing his now signature blend of anthemic folk and show-stopping vocals.
Hawksley wrote and recorded his new record, Less Rage More Tears, in Montreal with acclaimed producer and songwriter Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The National). The title marks a moment where almost imperceptibly, the rage Hawksley observed started to turn to tears.
It’s a wonderful life. It’s a horrible life. It’s all such a grind. We’re all tired. But much of it is still fun. So, what are you gonna do? Only the least fashionable and singularly uncool thing you can do… make a rock and roll album. Here’s my new one. And it’s good. – Hawksley Workman
