I have quite a few friends that have thanked me for introducing them to Hawksley Workman.
I, myself, discovered Hawksley when my wife and I bought a compilation CD box set of Canadian musicians and it included his song, Jealous of Your Cigarette. It's a whimsical song that, now that my daughters are older, I can't play around them.
When Between the Beautifuls and Los Manlicious came out (both in 2008), I was hooked, and when my wife and I saw him perform in Ottawa a couple of years ago, we became die-hard fans.
Hawkley oozes talent, from his vocals, to his proficiency on the guitar and drums, all you have to do is listen, and you'll understand.
Here's a version of his song, Devastating, which he performed live on CBC Radio's Q.
