Hawksley Workman perforrmed at the Vanguard in Newtown on 24/05/06.
Now, Hawksley Workman is someone I knew barely anything about. I heard good things from a few people. And he was fantastic.
The closest comparison I can make for the Canadian singer is Tom Waits. But with a Jeff Buckley voice (cliche I know). Great storyteller, great rainy, lonely songs. And a great guitar player. He really looked like he crawled out of New Orleans.
No music yet, but I’ll track some down very soon. There are some videos on his site
