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 17 years, Workman boasts a catalogue of 16 solo releases showcasing his now signature spectrum of sonic influence, from cabaret to electro-pop to anthemic rock and plenty in between.
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.
