PRESS QUOTES

"Hawthorne's voice is a hybrid of Eddie Vedder's and Gordon Lightfoot's, his instrumentation spare like Townes Van Zandt, and his songs...are deliberate workaday tales reminiscent of Nebraska-era Springsteen or James McMurtry."
Mike Seely

"Chuck Hawthorne has a story, and his history is enough to get attention.  As huge as the back story may be, the presence of the man takes a back seat to what a lifetime of experience has offered to three minute songs."
Danny McCloskey

"We desperately need songwriters like Chuck Hawthorne."

"Chuck has lived every inch of the lives he's written about....learned a thing or two about hard living, and damn if he can't cut you with his words."

WHAT OTHER ARTISTS ARE SAYING



"Damn good songs - visceral." 
Ray Bonneville

"...best songwriter I've heard in 20 or 30 years." 
Michael Martin Murphey

"...a workingman's songwriter." 
Gurf Morlix

"I figured Chuck Hawthorne was the right stuff when I saw him shut down a crowd of rowdies one night with just him and a guitar.  He plays it, writes it, and sings it.  Listening to this collection confirms it.  The right stuff - rare, not easy to come by, can't be faked." 
Richard Dobson
 
"Just when you thought you'd heard all the good music - Chuck Hawthorne."
Ramblin' Jack Elliott
