Making music is in Hawksley Workman’s blood. His music has inspired those in the public eye, like celebrities Renee Zellweger and Russell Crowe, who turn on Delicious Wolves or Treeful to get psyched up for a day on set. He’s also good for the athletes, like Canadian Olympic track star Simon Whitfield who used Hawksley’s music as a pump-up-soundtrack before capturing the silver at the Olympics in China.
Throughout his 10-album career, Hawksley Workman has spread his incomparable talent from one continent to another. He has developed a diverse and supportive following that includes Northern Ontario hometown pride to Australian fanfare. He’s caught the ear of The Cure and David Bowie, both of whom took Hawksley on tour. As a producer, Hawksley has worked with on the cusp artists before they were cuspin’, like Tegan & Sara and Sarah Slean. His two latest production credits include Newfoundland’s fast-rising, Hey Rosetta!, and Canadian blockbusters, Great Big Sea.
