Hawksley Workman and His Little Beauties…

Ontario is being selfish. They have a versatile one-man jam, who is capable of keeping us guessing from album to album – sometimes even from track to track – but are keeping the goodness to themselves. Hawksley Workman is glam rock. No, a spiritual composer and quirky pop enthusiast. With his eclectic collection of records, he’s everything, really. Ultimately though, an artist who has won me over. There are artists that put out maybe a few songs, or a stunner of a record. After that, anything they do, no matter the true quality of it, is locked in for greatness. Hawksley Workman achieved that status.

2006’s Treeful of Starling, an album far from what originally hooked me, is soft-spoken and full of light and optimistic melodies. Workman’s vocal instrument plays a prominent roll on all nine tracks. Below, is one that caught me upon first listen…
