Two-time JUNO Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Hawksley Workman is a staple of the Canadian music and arts scene. He boasts a catalogue of 16 solo releases, and a touring career that has seen him play over a thousand shows, headlining prestigious venues like Massey Hall in Toronto and The Olympia in Paris. Workman’s award-winning theatre show, The God That Comes had successful runs at Toronto’s Tarragon Theatre, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, New Zealand Festival, and Denmark’s Arhus Festival.
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 Workman is many things to many people in many places, but primarily, he’s a student of the human psyche; an artist in the purest sense of the word, constantly finding fresh and interesting ways to frame and share the world – the people we are and the things we encounter. It’s a virtually bottomless well of ideas for a man with virtually endless imagination and creative outlets.
