Iconic Yorkshire Musician Richard Hawley comes to The Piece Hall on Saturday 4 September 2021. The show follows a landmark year for Hawley, whose 9th studio album ‘Further’ reached his joint highest charting at Number 3.
In the two decades that have elapsed since Hawley jettisoned band life, first with The Longpigs and then as Pulp’s guitarist, the 52-year-old songwriter has forged one of the most singular and diverse careers in modern music.
As well as releasing a string of solo albums that have managed the rare feat of being both critically acclaimed and commercially successful, Hawley has worked with a host of impressive collaborators – such as Arctic Monkeys, Manic Street Preachers, Elbow, Texas and Paul Weller, alongside personal heroes that include U.S guitarist Duane Eddy (his 2011 album, Road Trip, was co-produced by Richard), Shirley Bassey (for whom he wrote the smouldering ballad, After The Rain, in 2009), Nancy Sinatra, Lisa Marie Presley and British folk royalty Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson (he was an integral part of 2013’s Bright Phoebus Revisited tour). There are also bona fide pop stars such as Robbie Williams, All Saints and Texas, all of whom Hawley has played with in differing capacities down the years. Also, his song Tonight The Streets Are Ours was featured in The Simpsons and Exit Through The Gift Shop: A Banksy Film.
His appearance in Halifax promises to be a special show from a musician that has a knack for creating poignant and powerful songs like ‘Tonight the streets are ours’ and ‘The Ocean’. He is joined by 6 Music darling John Grant, Stephen Fretwell & Studio Electrophonique.
