EDITORS’ NOTES

It seems Richard Hawley’s journey into psych-rock on 2012’s Standing At the Sky’s Edge was just a detour. Here, his world-weary croon glides through more familiar Hawley touchstones: classic pop, sumptuous arrangements and folky intimacy. Befitting a record partly recorded in his garden shed, Hollow Meadows opens up his personal spaces with 11 elegant tales of love, regret, hurt and hope. Everything coalesces best on “What Love Means”, a heart-tugging sigh of parental pride and anguish.

Yes! New album

Never looked forward to a new album so much. His music, lyrics and voice are something extraordinary. "Heart of oak" is a great song. I like the direction he's headed so far. Check out the film "Love is all" for a true Richard Hawley fan and film buff.

Another masterpiece

A bit hyperbolic, but hopefully it will get attention. And that’s what Richard needs in America, no one has heard of him. I remember ONE great review in Rolling Stone for his Lady’s Bridge album. I bought that record, and soon all his others. Each successive album is great as well. This album is just so pleasant. Beautifully recorded as all his albums are, and so just sink in your couch and listen. Please get all his albums…if you can handle beautiful melodies and an amazing voice.

Richard Hawley is a fantastic writer/performer. His music evokes a soulful feel that draws you in.
As a guitar player I reall appreciate how he keeps it clean sounding without all the over dubs etc,
This new release is fantastic. I'm really enjoying it. Support Richard by purchasing their art.
Hey Richard,...please try and make it to NYC area sometime.. would love to see you perform your wondeful melodic music. Peace
