Building from his gritty Sheffield origins into a cultural icon, Richard Hawley’s career includes years performing with legendary British bands Longpigs and Pulp, through to contributions to current artists such as Arctic Monkeys and Elbow. His significant solo career has spanned no less than 7 albums, including this year’s Barclaycard Mercury Prize nominated Standing at the Sky’s Edge (out now through EMI), and it is these works he will be performing here in the new year.
Richard Hawley’s live performances captivate audiences and critics alike with their timeless grace and irrepressible swagger:
‘Every song is a glorious highlight in its own right, be it the shimmering reverb-drenched contemplation of “Soldier On,” the gentle, progressive beauty of “Remorse Code” or the raucous psyche rock tremors of “Down in the Woods.” Flawlessly conceived and superlatively executed, it truly is a pinnacle to which all other musicians should aspire.’ – Muzic Dizcovery
‘But it’s when Hawley’s at his quietest, when you can hear a pin drop that his thick, smooth voice shines through… ‘Soldier On’ is a quiet, atmospheric number, building to such a climax that you can’t help but have a tear in your eye as it reaches that final crescendo. As the crowd stands for the second ovation of the night, it’s clear Richard Hawley is proud of his roots.’ – Clash Music
Be sure not to miss these first ever performances by Richard Hawley on our shores; a truly remarkable artist of our generation.
