Richard Hawley

This is Richard's Hawley's first solo album after a varied carreer in Pulp, Longpigs and others. The story goes that Hawley was sat backstage strumming one of his lovely songs when he was overheard by John Power out of Cast who said something like "what the fook are you doing with those set of bell ends when you should be doing this" or words to that effect. The rest is history. This is lovely stuff, I preferred Hawley like this when he was he made things sparse. It has a wonderful Northern working mans club feel. Something you'd sing on the way home from sinking 5 pints of Trophy, staggering into the rain, back home to a nice wife.

Lowedges

Richard Hawley's soft but always commanding voice is the centrepiece of 'Lowedges', a record of gentle, carefully crafted chamber pop that brings together Wilco-esque drumming, country twang and an almost ambient approach to making rock 'n' roll. With his brooding and crooning, along with all the musicians ornamenting him, Hawley recalls artists such as Bill Fay. 

Richard Hawley
Further

Sheffield's most 1950s man returns with the first album not named after a part of Sheffield since his stunning debut Late Night Final. I'd do anything... anything to hear Richard Hawley make music as moving and intimate as that again but later records tend to be more fully arranged efforts with big production values. Still, he's a northern national treasure and we've be desperately trying to contact him or his management to get a message to him from a customer but no-one has yet responded. Can anyone help?

Funny Cow (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

'Funny Cow' looks like it's going to be a great film. It stars Maxine Peake and is filmed in Saltaire. What could go wrong? Nothing especially as the soundtrack has been composed by that lord of northern English melancholy Richard Hawley. Corinne Bailey Rae and Ollie Trevers also contribute but this is mostly Hawley's gig.

Richard Hawley
I Still Want You

Mmmmm, drink in that rich baritone… Richard Hawley is in full-on grizzled romantic mode for I Still Want You, a single taken from his recent Hollow Meadows album. He continues to pull off the trick of sounding totally classic without being regressive. The only thing that lets down this 7” is the very basic graphic design on the sleeve. On Parlophone.

Heart Of Oak

Everyone’s favourite Sheffield rock-songcrafter Richard Hawley has a new album forthcoming, titled Hollow Meadows. To preview it, we have this single, Heart Of Oak, which has the poetic croon and the stylish guitar you’d expect from Hawley. The B-side is exclusive to this 7” too! On Parlophone.

Richard Hawley
Hollow Meadows

Sheffield’s favourite classic-style rock singer-songwriter Richard Hawley returns to your stereos with Hollow Meadows, album number eight in his oeuvre. Hawley broods and ponders on mature subject matter, backed by arrangements both richly orchestral and grittily direct (especially when Hawley’s guitar solos come into play).

Lady's Bridge

Lady's Bridge was the fourth album by old romantic Richard Hawley and the first to feature him sprawling on a chair in silver trousers on the cover. It is another tender and moving record from the songwriter and contains Tonight the Streets are Ours one of his best and most well known anthems. For the uninitiated, think about a Sheffield Roy Orbison crooning songs in smoky South Yorkshire pubs and you'll be somewhere in the ball park. Classic sounding stuff as always.

Truelove's Gutter

Truelove's Gutter was the sixth studio album from Sheffield's best '50s throwback Richard Hawley. After two albums of more fully arranged compositions, Hawley stripped things back for perhaps his darkest and most ambient sounding work to date. It's a slow burner with some truly transcendental moments. If For Your Lover Give Some Time doesn't make you weep real tears then nothing will.

Richard Hawley
Coles Corner

Late Night Final may be his best album (according to me) but Cole's Corner was the record which really put Richard Hawley's vintage sounding melancholy on the map. Like most of his albums it is named after a Sheffield landmark but this one resonates deep within the music. Coles Corner, a meeting place for lovers, is reflected in the deeply yearning chamber pop which contained elements of 60s ballads, rockabilly and country. Northern romanticism at its very best.

Late Night Final

Ah 'Late Night Final'. Am I the only man north of Worksop to think that this is Richard Hawley's finest work? Probably. I sorta went off him a bit after this as he got stuck a little too fast in the chugalong 50's throwback Roy Orbison croonings. This has everything. Sparse weepers, gorgeous instrumentals, Lambchop-like soothing pop, its all here. This is truly the record for listening to under the quilt late at night  the rain beating down on the velux window. Try listening to 'Can You Hear the Rain, Love' without weeping into your pint of mild. Impossible.
