A slight departure from past musical feats, Workman released a children’s illustrated book titled Almost a Full Moon, a warm-hearted tale of family, community, food and home. A story of a boy and his grandmother on a cold winter’s night, his words are beautifully complemented with the rich illustrations of Jensine Eckwall, who helps brings beauty and a hint of magic to Workman's evocative lyrics. Together, they create a world and a night that will enchant readers of all ages. Almost a Full Moon was published September 2016 by Penguin Random House.
More recently, Hawksley wrote and recorded his latest LP following a move to Montreal from the Muskoka wilderness. Produced by The Dears creative genius, Murray A. Lightburn, the record showcases Hawksley’s hooky yet innovative melodic approach, authentic songwriting, and good old-fashioned, unedited musicianship. The first single, “Battlefords” was released on October 26, 2018, Says Hawksley about the new song, “it is a piece of Canadian nostalgia, celebrating life in rural Canada in the 1980s, and the emotion and innocence that was specific to a quasi-technological time in the late 20th century.”
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.
