8/10 Dave Staff review, 12 January 2012
Folksy winsomeness from a talented singer songwriter who while not penning folk songs is fascinated by ornithology and people watching. The New Hawks have a very traditional sound that has Anglo-Celtic feel and a very interesting take on modern folk music. The title track 'John's Shoes' has a lively sound and smooth production, while Haywood's musings about life and how to live it are top notch. The flip side called 'Superquarry' is also a good song. It also has an upbeat feel and interesting lyrics and sweet instrumentation. It's a great song, and I actually prefer it to the title track...but there you go. A sure fire folk hit and one that sounds delightful and makes you want to wear big jumpers and grow lavish beards...
