Sheffield’s favourite son Richard Hawley is to play a live show at The Pavilion in Cork City on Saturday April 24.
When Richard Hawley first emerges as a be-quiffed silhouette against a white light and emits a swooping tenor-to-bass glissando to a double bass, piano and bouzouki backing (on ‘A Songbird’s Melody’) the entire audience gasps and swoons.

The title track from Hawley’s masterpiece LP is a gem of understated beauty. Using Sinatra-esque vocals, he crafts four minutes of sincere nostalgia, bleeding with absolute beauty. The sense of longing wrapped in his vocal delivery, coupled with his aching lyrics of hope and desire paints an unforgiving and all-consuming picture of loneliness and unfulfilled desire. A beautiful piece of music from a true master.

Richard Hawley’s pedigree as a guitarist was never in doubt. A cursory glance at his CV reveals that Richard has ground his axe for the likes of Robbie Williams, Finlay Quaye and Perry Farrell. What is surprising, perhaps, is the richness of Hawley’s voice, pitched somewhere between Neil Hannon and Sean Miller.
