Richard Hawley

With a melodic baritone anguish that falls somewhere in the neighborhood of Scott Walker, Pulp touring guitarist and former Longpigs member Richard Hawley began his solo career with a self-titled debut in 2001. The son of a steel worker, Hawley was raised in Sheffield, England, and grew up listening to folks such as Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley. He learned guitar at an early age from his father and uncle. During the '90s he built up a reputation as an ace guitarist and, besides his stints in Pulp and Longpigs, did session work for U.K. artists such as Robbie Williams, Beth Orton, and All Saints. He released his self-titled debut in April 2001. Hawley's sophomore effort, Late Night Final, which cloaked his sweet baritone and heartworn songs in lush arrangements, followed in 2002 on Bar-None Records. Hawley toured behind the album, opening for the likes of Coldplay and Pulp. Also in 2002, Hawley and Pulp leader Jarvis Cocker recorded a track for the tribute album Total Lee! The Songs of Lee Hazlewood. The next year, Hawley returned with the personal Lowedges, which was named for a place just outside his native Sheffield. In September 2005, Hawley released his first album for Mute, the bittersweet Coles Corner. He followed it in 2007 with Lady's Bridge. Hawley was approached by Mute label boss Daniel Miller, who asked him if he had an album in him he'd always wanted to make regardless of commercial concerns. Hawley responded in the affirmative and underscored his remark with: "There won't be any singles on it." Miller told him to go ahead and record it anyway. That album, Truelove's Gutter, was released by the label in 2009. He followed it with a four-track EP in 2010 entitled False Lights from the Land, featuring two originals and two covers. In the spring of 2012, Hawley released Standing at the Sky's Edge, an aggressive, two-guitar, bass, drums -- and rocket noises -- rock & roll album, which stood in stark contrast to his previous two full-lengths. ~ Erik Hage, Rovi

Best singer-songw r i t e r of the 21st century.
This isn't only rainy day music...it's thoughtful and where melody meets soul. Richard Hawley is a new favorite just as an old, dear friend should be on special occassions.
Wow. I'm starting to break away from my roots, and get over my anguish for modern music by listening to it. I have to say, if more of it turns out to be like him, I'd be more than content with listening to more of it.
I love the moaning that he makes his instuments do and then he adds a great voice to really spice it up.
If you love this music as much as I do then I recomend Coles Corner first. "Just like the rain" is a fantastic track. That was the fiorst song I heard and have been a major fan ever since. The album as a whole is a masterpeice! If you lioke that one....you will like them all.
NEED TO HEAR MORE ,GOOD VOICE.
music as it should be...
