Hints of ’80s jangle psych-pop bristle amidst the brilliant and punchy power chords that ebb and flow through this 5-track rocker. David Hawkins is the driving force behind this Chicago area band that mixes his passion for the old school (Dylan, VU), the not as old (Springsteen, R.E.M , dB’s) and the new (Jayhawks, Uncle Tupelo). The result is an infectious blend of driving power-pop that sounds like a cross between The Foo Fighters and The Cosmic Rough Riders.
” –Miles of Music
“A fresh new voice in American music.”
–Detroit Free Press
“As a teenager, David Hawkins was influenced by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Who, but it was Neil Young’s “Harvest” that was a revelation In the late ’80s, while managing the alt-country group Souled American, Hawkins began writing his own songs. Digging into the rich musical vein of the past from Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan to Hank Williams and Robert Johnson, his music pulses with an appealing pop-rock beat, clever, meditative lyrics and finely honed melodies.”
