Singer and songwriter. Broadcaster. Performer, producer, poet, and playwright. Multi-instrumentalist and Mountie.
Hawksley Workman is all of these things and others – an ambitious, ever-busy global ambassador of Canadian culture and creativity. The pun on the surname? It’s just too easy.
A staple of the Canadian arts scene for over 20 years, Workman boasts a catalogue of 15 solo releases showcasing his now signature blend of anthemic folk and cabaret pop with show-stopping vocals and sonic textures ranging from subtle electronica to blazing rock. The accolades amassed include JUNO nods and wins and widespread critical acclaim. Many titles were self-recorded by Workman in his basement studio, long before home recording rigs’ rise to ubiquity.
As a producer, his fingerprints grace releases by JUNO and Polaris Prize nominees and winners like Tegan and Sara, Sarah Slean, Serena Ryder, Hey Rosetta!, and Great Big Sea. He’s also penned melodies with a myriad of artists, from Oscar award winning Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, Inception) to the late French rock icon Johnny Hallyday. Hawksley’s touring career has seen him play over a thousand shows worldwide. He’s headlined prestigious venues like Massey Hall in Toronto and The Olympia in Paris, and opened for heroes Morrissey, David Bowie, and The Cure.
