Hawksley Workman
‘Old Cheetah’ (album stream)

By Alex Hudson,
Published May 25, 2015
In the last couple of years, Canadian songwriter Hawksley Workman has branched out by drumming with his supergroup Mounties and touring his “one-man cabaret” The God That Comes. Now, he’s back to emphasizing his solo career, and with Old Cheetah due out on June 2 through Six Shooter Records, Exclaim! has got the stream of the entire album.

The 12-song effort is theatrical and ambitious. Workman’s signature eclecticism shines brightly on songs like “1000 Miles of Atmosphere,” a nine-and-a-half-minute prog epic that’s stuffed with syncopated rhythms, star-dazzled synth twinkles and unpredictable sonic shifts.

Although not every song is quite that wildly sprawling, Workman never goes on autopilot and proves that even an old cheetah can learn new tricks. The style range from the falsetto-flecked soul of “Teenage Cats” to the piano-driven space-rock anthem “We’re Not Broken Yet,” to the salt-of-the-earth folk of “It’s Really Starting to Snow” and the cabaret psych of “Small Town Dracula.”

It’s a lot to absorb, so dive into the ambitious Old Cheetah below.

Workman has a series of summer concerts lined up, and you can see those here. You can also pre-order the album here.

“We’re Not Broken Yet”, the latest song from Hawksley’s upcoming record Old Cheetah (June 2, Six Shooter Records) as been released!

It’s available NOW on iTunes!

TODAY!  Video for  Hawksley’s new single “Don’t Take Yourself Away (Instant Nostalgia)” has just premiered on !!  This is the first single off of Hawksley’s upcoming record, Old Cheetah.


Hawksley Workman gets all nineteen hundred and eighties with a new video for “Don’t Take Yourself Away (Instant Nostalgia),” the first single from the forthcoming album Old Cheetah, coming June 2, 2015 on Six Shooter Records. Directed by Ken Cunningham, the video captures a type of melancholy and brooding gothic angst that is, weirdly, found in both Wuthering Heights AND The Breakfast Club. Both songwriter and showman, Hawksley Workman is an unpredictable musical force prone to crafting wildly catchy songs that explode fully-formed from a swirling nuclear fusion of cabaret theatricality, glam rock and wantonly pop musical elements.

Performance Dates: Thursday, September 11, to Friday, September 12, and Thursday, September 18, to Saturday, September 20, 11:30 p.m. Saturday, September 13, 2:00 p.m.

Part play, part concert, all bacchanalian, The God that Comes is a wine-soaked rock-’n’-roll cabaret celebrating the god of wine and ecstasy. This solo performance, starring musical sensation Hawksley Workman, fuses the chaotic revelry of a rock concert with the intimacy of theatrical storytelling. The show is a tonic for a society that has lost its sense of balance, and for a people that have lost touch with their animal instincts. It is an invitation to raise a glass together, hear a story and get lost in the music for a few hours. Tickets and event details can be found here!

But first!  Hawksley will be a musical guest, performing songs from The God That Comes at this year’s Shakespeare Slam in Toronto at Kroener hall on April 23rd 2014.  Details on the event and ticket information can be found here!
