Hawksley and I discuss his tour in November visiting intimate venues across Ontario while also talking about him quitting school as a teenager to teach music. We dive into his theory as to why the recorder was placed into the school system as a budget saving tool. We touch on him living as a true starving artist to fully dedicate his life to his craft. Hawksley answers a fan question and discusses his attachment to a Boy George (Culture Club) song he covers at his shows and what role that song played in his life.
I slightly fanboy with plenty of praise towards Hawksley's body of work and I may swoon over Sarah Slean and discuss their Ontario tour in Feb/March 2020 as well as their single which has now been released since this delightful converstation.
